‘Wreck-It Ralph’ & ‘King of Kong’ Collide in Faux Documentary Short
Wreck-It Ralph (now on Blu-Ray and DVD) was one of my favorite movies of 2012, and though talks of a sequel have been brewing ever since its release, Disney is continuing the story in a more unique way first. They’ve released a thirty minute short online called Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives,” a fake King of Kong-style documentary about the kid who once held the high score on the arcade version of Fix-It Felix Jr. game before it was overtaken by a Billy Mitchell-type rival. Ralph director Rich Moore hosts this live action tale, and if you’re a fan of both Wreck-It Ralph and King of Kong, this is a must-watch. Watch it!
Here’s the full fake documentary Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives, found via http://www.movies.com/movie-news/garlan-hulse-where-potential-lives-spoofs-king-of-kong/11475“>Movies.com:
Rich Moore (watch our interview with him here) has helmed episodes of “Futurama” and “The Simpsons” and directed Wreck-It Ralph, the story of an 8-bit video game character struggling with his own villainous identity with the world of arcade games. John C. Reilly voices the titular character who tries to be a hero, but ends up unleashing a deadly enemy who just might destroy every game in the arcade. Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman all lend their voices to the film, which is available now on Blu-Ray & DVD.
