Wreck-It Ralph Coming to Blu-Ray & Review!

My family and I had the pleasure of seeing Disney's Wreck-It Ralph in 3D at the theatres late last year.  I really wondered if all 5 kids would be able to appreciate it, as their ages range from 2- to 7-years old.  However, they all enjoyed it immensely and all had different favourite parts of the movie.  I would absolutely recommend it for boys and girls, if you are considering adding it to your bluray or dvd library.  I would also recommend it to parents, who so often participate in family movie hour.

The story is about Ralph, the nemesis in videogame Fix-It Felix Jr., who decides that he would like to be the hero for a change.  However, all the characters that he encounters make light of his aspirations and declare that his destiny is to be a villain.  Determined to show the world that he can become a hero, Ralph goes "turbo", leaving his videogame programme in search of the gold medal that will "prove" naysayers wrong.  What ensues is a big adventure, with friendships made along the way--and true acts of heroism.       

For those who have not yet seen Wreck-It Ralph, I have to say that the Sugar Rush (videogame) scenes will especially appeal to your princess--especially the adorable Vanellope von Schweetz.  The scenes are cute, bright and "sweet".  Actually, which child won't love the candy scenes?  Take a look at my son at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, who jumped into Vanellope's go-kart made entirely of candy.  (I don't think it was allowed, but he went "turbo" on us!)

I have always loved Disney films--from when I was a little girl to the present day when I share the movies with my kids.  The Disney name on a movie gives me confidence that the title will be family-friendly, provide family morals, and entertain my children even upon repeated viewings.  It is with great enthusiasm that I add Wreck-It Ralph to our family blu-ray library!


Check out this clip to see how they created the 8-bit videogame world of Wreck-It Ralph! It really is a fascinating process that helped create this retro world!

The HD Digital and HD Digital 3D versions of Wreck-It Ralph were just released on February 12th, with the Bluray combo pack, Bluray 3D, DVD, SD Digital and on-demand versions coming out on March 5th!  The 4-disc 3D combo pack features the Paperman theatrical short; a look into the creation of Wreck-It Ralph; a gamer's guide to Wreck-It Ralph, and deleted and alternate scenes.

Have you seen Wreck-It Ralph in theatres?  Is Wreck-It Ralph a title that you will be adding to your bluray or dvd library?

  1. I'm glad to read a review on this one. I have seen the trailers and it certainly looks interesting. Now that my daughter is almost old enough to sit still through a movie we are starting to build her a library of favorites. She is Cinderella crazy right now so Disney movies are a hit.
