so as I’m sure most of you know, Hero’s (Heroes?) Cuties (Felix and Calhoun) are my absolute favorite Disney OTP
I really really REALLY hope that the Wreck-it Ralph 2 (since they made it fairly clear that it’s happening) crew are smart enough to realize that the idea of Tamora Calhoun and Fix-it Felix Jr. having a child is absolutely unfeasible for a number of reasons
(And for starters I really hope nobody takes this as hate because honestly I just don’t want to see the characters suffer or end up in pain. Same goes for the kid. And the fans.)
- Sergeant Calhoun obviously can’t do her job in Hero’s Duty when she’s preggers
- if she DOES do her job in Hero’s Duty (which she pretty much has to) while she’s preggers, Gamers are going to think something’s up or wrong with the game/screen/coding, and the game could be unplugged, leading to disaster for a lot of people (If Q*Bert’s 5(4?)-person crew can barely survive in the streets (avoiding spoilers here), how do you think the other games would handle that?)
- you honestly can’t be pregnant in a game like Hero’s Duty because if you’re eaten by a Cybug while you’re pregnant it will be one of the worst possible things ever for you ever
- game characters don’t age, so the idea of a baby/child/whatever would be a really really REALLY flawed idea
- the baby would easily end up being a glitch, since it’s a corruption/addition/flux in the game’s (any game, depending on which game it’s born in), meaning it can’t leave that game, and if that game is unplugged, Felix and Tamora lose their son/daughter, which is freakin’ horrible
- it’s just a really flawed and dangerous (physically and emotionally) idea
Exclusive: Director Rich Moore Would Love to See Tron Appear in Wreck-It Ralph 2
ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to speak with Moore about the film’s incredible success and, while we’ll be running the full interview soon, he also dropped a brief tidbit about a popular video game character he’d love to work into a sequel: Tron.
Played by Bruce Boxleitner in 1982’s TRON, the character was actually intended to have a cameo in the first Wreck-It Ralph.
“I can’t specifically remember why that didn’t happen,” Moore explains. “…Of course, with a sequel, I’m hoping that we can find a way to see Tron himself in that movie.”
Also, LET THERE BE FIX IT FELIX/SGT. CALHOUN BABIES IN THE SEQUEL!!!!!
They’re married and kids always expect married couples to have babies. Most importantly, IT’D BE SO FREAKING CUTE! Felix and Sgt. Calhoun would be the cutest parents ever with the cutest kid! Heck, it doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl. B/c either way, it’d be perfect! The girl would be bad*beep* like her mom, but she would be Daddy’s little girl. :3 And with a boy, c’mon: Felix the III with a little training hammer, going around, acting like his daddy. PRECIOUS!
Wreck-It Ralph Director Teases Super Smash Bros Possibilities For Sequel
Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph was a smash hit at the box office, a hit with critics, and a real contender for the Academy Awards’ Best Animated Feature honor. With so much success, a sequel seemed a very likely possibility. By December, Disney announced Wreck-It Ralph 2 was on its way to becoming a reality.
With such an expansive world inspired by video games, the filmmakers are spoiled for choice in where the story might go. Previously, director Rich Moore publically pondered including games like Angry Birds and Words With Friends into the Wreck-It Ralph fold. And with the DVD release coming next week, a new round of interviews has divulged even more possibilities! Speaking with Hypable, Moore admitted he and John C. Reilly, who voiced the titular anti-hero, were kicking around some ways to expand Ralph’s world. He explains:
“Are there other Ralphs that are more contemporary? Is there another version of the game that was made for mobile? Are there those kind of Super Smash Brothers type games where all the characters are gathered in a fighting game? What would that be like for Ralph to come face to face with those different iterations of himself? And it’s created some really cool conversations…it’s something we’re playing around with right now.”
Seeing different versions of Ralph would definitely be an energizing way to keep this potential franchise fresh. Consider how much fun Pixar had with rebooted Buzz Lightyear and Spanish Buzz in Toy Story 3. The idea of Ralph having to potentially face off against alternate versions of himself is not just an intriguing plot device, but also another way gaming culture can fuel this film. What if other Wreck-It Ralphs haven’t had that moment of self-realization that their job as a bad guy doesn’t define who they are? A different Wreck-It Ralph could be a villain in the sequel! Or else there could be an army of Ralphs, teaming up against an even more formidable foe than the ravenous aliens from the first film.
Obviously, I’m really pumped about where the story could go from here, but for now Moore and company are still working out a plotline. Disney hasn’t even greenlit the project, which is actually a good sign as it suggests the studio wants a solid story on the table before barreling into production. So for now, we’ll just have to let Moore process his thoughts on the world of Wreck-It Ralph as we savor the movie’s lushly realized characters and settings, and revisit its wild adventure again and again on DVD and Blu-ray.
So I was in my DAR 124 class....
And we were all talking about movies of 2012 and this happened.
Teacher: Did anyone see Brave?
Me: I did.
Teacher: What did you think?
Me: It was great! Merida was a really good character and the animation was fantastic!
Teacher: Did you see that video game movie?
Me: Wreck it Ralph?
Teacher: Yeah that’s the one, what did you think about it?
Me: Oh goodness that movie was great too, too bad my favorite character wasn’t in it for very long.
Me: yeah there’s this bitch of a racer who’s full of attitude and even though she’s in the movie for like 4 minutes she practically steals every scene she’s in.
Teacher: Well I heard the movie did great! Maybe the sequel will have them as the main character if they’re that cool.
Wreck-It Ralph Sequel?
So, I’ve been thinking over the idea of a WIR sequel for a little bit. At first I was all “NOPE.GIF” because I hold the first one in such high regard, and would dread a bad sequel tarnishing the glory of the original. On the other hand, Toy Story 2 AND 3 both exist and are great.
So, if there is a sequel, this is a possible storyline I thought of: the main game is Fix-
It Felix JR., right? And Felix got his hammer from his father, right? Traditionally in arcade games, no one started out as a “Jr”, they were spawned off from an already popular machine, like with Donkey Kong Jr. or Pacman Jr. (yes there was a Pacman Jr. And also SUPER PACMAN which everyone forgets but was really great). So it stands to reason that there is a “Fix-It Felix” arcade game out there.
What if the renewed popularity of the Fix-It Felix Jr. cabinet causes Mr. Litwak to order an old Fix-It Felix game and it gets plugged in, and now we add Felix’s dad to the cast? I don’t know what sort of person his dad would be, but good things could be done with going the classic “I fondly but sternly expect great things from you, m’boy” route - Felix explaining about Calhoun, etc. There could be major cuteness there.
And what if the bad guy in the original Fix-It Felix game was… also Wreck-It Ralph? SO NOW WE HAD TWO RALPHS, but one is kind of “original recipe”, having not gone on the big journey that our Ralph did, ala the Buzz’s in Toy Story 2? And Felix’s dad would have problems with Felix being so buddy-buddy with a bad guy and the new Ralph would just be confused and gah idfk it just could be an interesting way to take things I guess.
Just as long as it ISN’T along the lines of “King Candy/Turbo somehow came back through some hand wavy bullshit and fucked Vanellope up again and now she has to learn the same damn message she already did but this time with more licensed songs over action sequences and less character building time!” because I fucking hate that kind of sequel and it would make me very sad.
More of Wir 2 thing...
ANNND what if that dude was like, the best at playing Fix It Felix Jr. and wanted the actual whole CONSOLE to play at the tournament. Cause he thought it was lucky or something.
But Mr. Litwak was all, “sorry, no can do, this is the oldest game here. It has some history and I have a feeling ol’ Ralph and Felix wouldn’t like going away.”
And the jerkwad gamer calls him crazy and storms out and the arcade breathes a sigh of relief But the gamer comes back and UNPLUGS FIX-IT FELIX JR. TO STEAL IT FROM LITWAKS.
omg this is inteanse but I can’t write a story to save my life, help.
