Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Takes Us on a Hilarious, Arcade-Game-Hopping Journey,
Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. EST, on ABC
Ahead of the highly anticipated sequel, “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2,” releasing in theaters on Nov. 21, 2018, “Wreck-It Ralph” takes us on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey on
FRIDAY, FEB. 16 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. (update – date change to Friday Feb. 23)
For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day – but can he do it in time?
