BURBANK, Calif., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The story of an arcade-game bad guy who embarks on a quest to prove he's really a good guy, "Wreck-It Ralph" journeys through wildly diverse arcade-game worlds, including the '80s-era, 8-bit video-game world of Fix-It Felix, Jr., the ultra-modern first-person shooter game Hero's Duty and the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush. Helping to differentiate these worlds from one another are unique cinematography, animation, effects and music. "Music is another way to set the stage and make these worlds completely different," said producer Clark Spencer.
But not just any music. Filmmakers tapped diverse and unexpected artists to help tell the story. Composer Henry Jackman created the film's score, which is complemented by original songs and music from Skrillex, AKB48, Owl City and Buckner & Garcia. Directed by Rich Moore, produced by Spencer and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch, "Wreck-It Ralph" crashes into theatres on Nov. 2, 2012. The film's soundtrack from Walt Disney Records will be available Oct. 30, 2012.
"When it came to the music of 'Wreck-It Ralph,'" said Moore, "we wanted to work with some really talented artists and I love that they aren't necessarily the people audiences expect to hear in a Disney animated movie. But when they hear the music and how it supports the story and drives the emotion, they'll say, 'This is perfect.'"
Moore said he took his lead from the original director of animated movies. " Walt Disney was a pioneer when it came to music. What sounds like classics to us now—Ukulele Ike in 'Pinocchio,' Peggy Lee in 'Lady and the Tramp'—were very unexpected choices."THE SCORE
