Anytime a movie’s release date gets pushed back or its title goes through a series of name changes, it can only be a good thing, right? Disney Studios has announced that its new CG animation adventure, “Wreck-It Ralph,” will hit theaters on November 2, 2012. Previously known as “Reboot Ralph” (and “Joe Jump” before that), the movie will be released in digital 3D and will include the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer.

Anytime a movie’s release date gets pushed back or its title goes through a series of name changes, it can only be a good thing, right? Disney Studios has announced that its new CG animation adventure, “Wreck-It Ralph,” will hit theaters on November 2, 2012. Previously known as “Reboot Ralph” (and “Joe Jump” before that), the movie will be released in digital 3D and will include the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer.

Sounding like some sort of cross between “Tron” and “Shrek” (assuming the film will include the vast number of pop culture references the premise lends itself to). The plot follows the titular character, a video game baddie (Reilly) who longs to be as well liked as the game's good guy, Fix-It Felix (McBrayer) and it seems like a good excuse for 3D to be used for a change. The real excitement will be hearing the incredibly eclectic cast together. Reilly’s goofy tenor voice will be a great contrast to Jane Lynch’s tough baritone, and McBrayer and Silverman should be equally entertaining in their sugar-coated roles. Though the film will undoubtedly be aimed at children, the talented actors will be an attraction for parents.

Emmy-winning director Rich Moore (“The Simpons,” “Futurama”) will be making his feature film debut. Check out the official synopsis below. -- Matthew Newlin

Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
