I had the pleasure of attending an advance screening for Wreck-It Ralph last night in San Diego. Ralph will be smashing into theaters this coming Friday, the 2nd of November.
I have to admit to being a little skeptical going in, I had seen the previews, as had my kids, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be a movie they would understand, let alone sit still through, and stay enthralled with. The advertising doesn't do it justice, it's such a great movie, my little man absolutely loved it, and so did I. I listened to him laughing through parts, and showing empathy for what each character was going through. He even made me stay through the credits. It is definitely a movie for everyone; they've cast a really wide net with this one to attract an audience of all ages.
I don't want to compare it too much to Toy Story, but once you see it you will understand where I'm coming from here. Just like the toys coming to life once humans aren't around and experiencing their adventures with them, Wreck-It Ralph is similar in that you not only get to see video games from a human's perspective, but also from the perspective of the characters inside the video games too.
Seeing as it's Halloween today, I've got some fun Wreck-It Ralph Halloween goodies to share with you.
If you are looking for a last-minute idea for trick-or-treaters, or just to keep your own kids entertained between coming home from school and heading out to trick-or-treat, print out a few of these fun Wreck-It Ralph coloring pages and activity sheets. Roll up the coloring pages and attach a small pack of crayons with ribbon. Or, print out the pencil toppers, attaching them to a pencil and then tying them on to the activity pages with ribbon.
