Sonic Desperately Tries to Look Cool on Wreck-It Ralph Poster (UPDATE: more posters)

Disney recently released a new trailer of Wreck-It Ralph, which features Sonic desperately trying to look cool by doing an old pose he did for Sonic 2006. Eggman appears on the poster as well along with other characters like Qbert, Zangief, M. Bison and Qbert. You can click on the poster on the left for a bigger version.

Sonic appears in the new trailer as well. You can see that one here. He only appears of like one second so blink and you might miss him. He also appears in a different scene in the Japanese trailer for an even shorter amount of time. He appears at about the 0:36 timestamp. In the scene it looks like he joined a party with a bunch of characters from the fictional game the main character of the movie comes from, Fix-It Felix Jr. You can see Wreck-It Ralph in theaters from November 2nd.

UPDATE: Disney has released four more posters for the movie, with one of them having Sonic front and center and another one with Eggman standing behind M. Bison. Another one of the posters also has that rhino boss from Altered Beast, so that’s neat. Also, yes Sonic does actually look kinda cool in the new poster, but my point that he is desperately trying to do so still stands! You can see the new posters in the gallery below.

    Sonic isn’t trying to look cool… He DOES look cool. Seriously, this is one of the best poses I’ve seen from the Blue Dude, all year.

    But on another note, I wonder how much trouble Disney had to go through to get all the “Copyright Allowance” for this thing. But who knows, it may have been a piece of cake for them.. 😛

      If you notice the other retro characters other than I guess Bowser are unique designs made exclusively for this movie to fit in with the pixar look of Ralph while Sonic and Eggman use the actual CG models that SEGA uses, I imagine considering the very 80’s to early 90’s gaming theme of the movie the makers wanted to use the original designs of the character but were denied by SEGA because of the heavily implied inferiority complex Iizuka has about Classic Sonic

      Nope, I didn’t notice that. But the CG models for Eggman & Sonic do look exactly similar to what you would see in the modern games.

      If you check the trailer you’ll see Classic Sonic.
      Have fun rethinking your “heavily implied” bias.

    I love how there are no Nintendo characters here. Speaking of which, anyone notice how little content from Nintendo is shown in the movie.

    Huh, I guess SEGA loves what Nintendon’t.

    ^ So 1993.

      Nintendo wanteed too much money from Disney. The cameos where sonic is in would have been mario instead. Good thing Disney had a second choice. Anyway how in the world sonic got in the party of the japanese trailer?

      Bowser is a Nintendo character…

      I meant on the poster. Alas, I’ve only seen Bowser in the movie. Only Nintendo character.

    I see two things when I see this poster. Either Sonic is the victor because Mario is not present OR Sonic is included because he is believed to be an imaginary character made up for the purpose of this movie. (Or option 3…Sega needs the money and Nintendon’t).

    Holy shit, Sonic. SONIC IN A PIXAR MOVIE. Where’s Mario? Seriously. I like them both! I see Bowser, but not Mario? What the hell… Well, the main character’s game is a Donkey Kong ’81 look-a-like, anyway.

      Actually, Wreck-It-Ralph is just Disney; the Pixar studio had nothing to do with this one.

    Qbert is mentioned twice!

    Anyway I’m glad Sonic is more than just a cameo in this movie, or so it seems, can’t wait to see it!

    I wonder if Junichi Kanemaru is gonna voice Sonic in the Japanese version, would be cool if he did!

    You KNOW it’s gonna be good when Q*bert is in it twice. Also, is it just me, or does the snake look a LOT like the Coil Snake in the MOTHER series? I literally cannot think of anything else it could be. Also, Sonic your spikes

    what are they doing

    sonic your fingers

    what are they doing

      the coil snake has a cobra-like appearance. you know, that neck thingy that cobras have >.>

      @Stonic18 they actually wanted both but it turns out it wasnt a matter of money its the fact that Nintendo plays it way-past-safe and theyre skeptical ever since the movie adaptation of Super Mario Bros in 1993 >.<

      I think that’s Coiley from Q-Bert. You know, the villain?

    Sonic is in an upcoming soon to be well known Disney movie with many other famous video game characters, and we can assume in this poster that Sonic will be playing a larger role than just a simple cameo. Seriously, why are you complaining?

  • Reply

    That pose looks a lot like the Sonic 06 pose, the SADX pose, and the heroes pose.

    Oh, and the Super Mario Sunshine pose ;D

    • Reply

      LOL. 😛

      Seriously, though, I think just the fact that Sonic even appears in the movie at all is awesome enough. 😀

    I was interested from the first sign of the ‘good’ Doctor.

    Why yes, I do intend to GET A LOAD OF THIS.

    I simply cannot wait for this movie. Should be brilliant!

    “characters like Qbert, Zangief, M. Bison and Qbert.”?
    XD
    I can’t wait to see this film though.

    I’M GONNA WATCH IT!

    …Bowser is nowhere to be seen on the posters. That’s odd.

  • Reply

    I don’t think Sonic should be on the poster due to the fact his not a villain, him being on the poster feel somewhat out of place compared to the other cast of characters on the posters .
