Though initially low-profile on the Disney Animation release slate while ambitious in its scope, “Wreck-It Ralph” has slowly become one of the more interesting offerings on show this holiday season.

Wreck It Ralph

Though initially low-profile on the Disney Animation release slate while ambitious in its scope, “Wreck-It Ralph” has slowly become one of the more interesting offerings on show this holiday season. Featuring a meta-video game narrative with 70+ characters shown, as well as a vibrant aesthetic that snaps attention to the screen, another compelling aspect remains the Skrillex-involved soundtrack, the details of which have just been released.

Eyebrows were definitely raised when dubstep producer Skrillex announced he was following up Harmony Korine's “Spring Breakers” by contributing music for 'Ralph' -- as well as snagging a cameo in the film -- but after a glimpse at the final tracklist, it seems that his presence as a solo artist will remain at a minimum for now. Only one of his songs, “Bug Hunt (Noisa Remix)” has landed intact, while the majority of the soundtrack belonging to composer Henry Jackman (“X-Men: The Last Stand”), although Skrillex may have overseen certain aspects of it. Finally, rounding out the collection are Rihanna's “Shut Up and Drive” and “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang. Oh, and there's also an original song by Owl City, “When Can I See You Again?” for what that information is worth.

The film's director, Rich Moore (“Futurama”), has clearly put a talented team together for the soundtrack, and luckily after a glimpse at the film's trailer, that seems to extend wholeheartedly to the actual film itself. With John C. Reilly and Jack McBrayer offering up their voices as Wreck-It Ralph and Fix-It Felix, and a 'Roger Rabbit'-esque world-jumping narrative, we can't wait to take a look when the film lands on November 2nd. But in the meantime catch the soundtrack when it's released October 30th. [Stitch Kingdom]
