Wreck-It Ralph Movie Trailer Has More Gaming Cameos Than You Can Count

It isn’t often that a movie trailer catches our attention around here, but when you get to see Zangief from Street Fighter in group therapy session with other gaming bad guys, well, we have to stop and look.

The next movie up from Disney’s animation studio is sure to fill gaming geeks hearts with joy as Wreck-It Ralph decides he’s had enough of being the bad guy after having done so for 30 years.  After having a group therapy session with other “bad guys,” he decides it’s time to head out in search of another game to call home.

The fun of this trailer is spotting gaming character legends such as:

  • Chun-Li, M. Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter
  • Clyde (orange ghost) from Pac-Man
  • Bowser from various Mario games
  • Q*Bert
