Résumé de l'éditeur

In Wreck-It Ralph, one of Disney's most innovative animated films to date, the title character is the destructive villain of an 8-bit arcade game who runs around smashing things as the good-guy, Fix-It Felix, saves the day whith his trusty hammer. Tired of being the bad guy, Wreck-It Ralph escapes his 8-bit world in search of adventure and a purpose beyond destruction, breaking all the established rules of the arcade as he does.

This inside look at Disney's latest 3-D animated adventure is brimming with concept art, including character sketches, storyboards, and colorscripts for the film's multiple arcade game landscapes - from the tech-heavy first-person shooter Hero's Duty to the candy coated racing track in Sugar Rush. The book offers an invaluable and fascinating glimpse into the creative thinking involved in the making of Wreck-It Ralph, including interviews with the film's many artists, a foreword by director Rich Moore, and a preface by John Lasseter. The aesthetic filmmaking journey on display in The Art of Wreck-It Ralph is a visual treat for video game and animation lovers, as well as fans of Ralph and his adventures.
