Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Hits Stores March 5th

Wreck It Ralph DVD

To say I am excited would be an understatement. When Wreck-It Ralph first came to theaters, I was first in line to take my son. Did I push a few people out of the way to get there? Maybe. What do you want from me? I was really excited to see this movie and it certainly did not disappoint! In fact, I think I even let out a slightly angered, “No!”, when Brave won the Oscar for best animated feature over Wreck-It Ralph. Love you, Merida, but Ralph was awesome!

It was the idea behind Wreck-It Ralph that drew me in. I loved the concept of the video game characters coming to life after the arcades closed down. Travelling through the power cords to Game Central Station is pure genius, and mixing old and new characters was enough to keep parents and kids excited about who they would see next. My son loves Sonic the Hedgehog and even though he is only in the movie for about 3 seconds, it’s one of his favourite moments.

Check out this clip from Wreck-It Ralph and make sure that you get out there and grab your copy of the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack on March 5th! I promise you won’t be disappointed as this movie has a little something for everybody. There are a couple scary parts but my 2yo daughter got through it without getting upset, so I’m pretty confident in saying that it is for all ages.

The Combo Pack also includes some great behind the scenes footage and interviews, plus you get the Academy Award winning short, Paperman, which was better than a lot of full length movies that came out last year! I wanted to leave you with my family’s thoughts on Wreck-It Ralph in a 6 second Vine video! Remember, March 5th, go get it!

I’m Gonna Wreck It! @WreckItRalph #Disney

My son and I were fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the new Disney movie, Wreck-It Ralph, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it. I have to admit, as excited as my son was after seeing his beloved, Bowser, in the trailers; his Daddy was even more excited to see all his favourite childhood characters!

From Sonic, Ken, Ryu and Zangief to Pac-Man and the Root Beer Tapper, Wreck-It Ralph took me on a wild ride through my video gaming years. I had really pumped myself up for this movie, so a little disappointment was definitely anticipated. I’m happy to report that this movie was so well made, I had a hard time picking out any flaws.

The story follows Wreck-It Ralph (John C Reilly), a video game bad guy who is tired of getting no recognition for his role in the game, Fix-It Felix JR. He sets out to win a good guy medal, by jumping into a couple of different games to try his hand at being good. The movie really gets fun when he meets Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), who is an obnoxious little girl from the game Sugar Rush.

This movie has a little bit of something for everybody and I highly recommend it for the whole family. If you have ever played a video game, you will recognize at least one character in this movie and relive the glory days of when you could finish one level without asking your kid for help.

The only thing I will mention, is that there are a couple scary parts involving some radioactive bugs. Both 4 year old’s we went with mentioned that they were a little freaked out at those parts, but for the most part, the rest of the movie is fun and light.

The creativity that went into this movie is second to none and everything is very well explained. I always appreciate when I’m not left scratching my head at the end of a kids movie and this one delivered, big time! If I had to rank it among my recent favourites, I’d put it somewhere between Toy Story/Cars and Brave/Tangled.

Thanks so much to Disney for allowing us to experience this movie! For more information on Wreck-It Ralph, please visit the Official Movie Site; or you can visit the Disney Facebook Page!
