Wreck-It Ralph is a wildly popular Walt Disney animated film about a villain who's tired of being the ‘bad guy’ after 30 years inside an aging coin-operated video game called “Fix-It Felix Jr.” The film chronicles how Ralph goes off to explore other games in the arcade to heroically win a medal and earn the respect from the other game characters.
