Wreck It Ralph arrives in March

Walt Disney Home Entertainment has just added the animated feature film Wreck It Ralph to their release roster, bringing the love letter to classic arcade and video games to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in March.
“Wreck-It Ralph” takes viewers on a hilarious journey.  For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman).
The release will be offered in a variety of formats, starting with a 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack, which includes a Blu-ray 3D versions, along with the regular Blu-ray version, the DVD and a Digital Copy. Then there is the 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack consisting of the Blu-Ray version and the DVD, and then, of course, there is the DVD version by itself.
Among the extras, you will find theFeaturette Bit by Bit: Creating the Worlds of “Wreck-It Ralph”, in which you will get a look at five new worlds created for “Wreck-It Ralph.” The short takes viewers into Game Central Station with the artists who brought Sugar Rush, Hero’s Duty and Fix It Felix Jr. to life.
The release also contains a selection of Alternate & Deleted Scenes, each with an introduction and optional audio commentary from director Rich Moore. The Video Game Commercials from the movie will also be included, so you will be able to enjoy the commercials created for Fix It Felix Jr., Sugar Rush, Hero’s Duty and Fix It Felix Hammer.
Paperman is an animated short film that is also included on the release. It played in theaters before “Wreck It Ralph.” It tells the story of a young man in an office who sees the girl of his dreams in a skyscraper window across the street. But how can he get her attention?
The Blu-Ray version of the movie will also contain Disney Intermission: The Gamer’s Guide to “Wreck-It-Ralph”.
