Wreck-it Ralph: Disney’s Freudian Deconstruction of Self-worth
Editor’s Note(Imagine a booming over dub voice): In a world where advertisements are often more entertaining than the films, one lonely and underpaid writer explores the art of the trailer!
- Wreck-it Ralph
- Opens November 2, 2012
After thirty years of playing the role of a video game villain, Ralph strikes out on a journey to find a new identity as a hero. Like Wall-e before it, Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph speaks directly to the modern human condition in which self-worth is too often defined by occupation. Sigmund Freud postulated that a person could find contentment, if not happiness, if he/she struck a balance between a satisfying work and home life. But can Ralph overcome his own brutish nature and a world that expects him to play his role? Director Rich Moore’s great casting includes the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, and Jane Lynch. Expect tears.
