Walt Disney's video-game romp "Wreck-It Ralph" has won top animation honors at the Annie Awards.
In Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph" opening Friday, the title character is the bad guy from a fictional 1980s video game. Despite faithfully doing his job well for 30 years, he gets no respect at work, so he escapes through the wires of Litwak's Family Fun Center searching for another game where he might prove his worth.
Guided by executive producer John Lasseter, Walt Disney Animation Studios has clearly devoted significant resources and talent to "Wreck-It Ralph," recruiting a top-notch cast and a diverse array of animation, visual effects and lighting artists to contribute to the distinct and varied vid-game styles. With a mix of retro eye-candy for grown-ups and a thrilling, approachable storyline for the tykes, the film casts a wide and beguiling net.
"Wreck-It Ralph" won't hit theaters until November, but about 6,000 fans at Comic-Con got to see 10 minutes of it on Thursday.
