'Wreck-It Ralph' might be the right prince to reawaken Disney as an animated-feature studio to reckon with.

It's a fast-paced comedy designed to appeal to both joystick jockeys of yore and the remote-waving Wii generation. And it does for a gaming arcade what 1995's Toy Story, the first-ever digital-animated feature, did for a kid's bedroom: expose a secret world populated with fully realized characters and filled with humor, heart and a flashy arsenal of cutting-edge visuals.

- Fix-It Felix is a primitive 8-bit game, much like Donkey Kong, where Ralph does his wrecking.

- The more sophisticated Sugar Rush is a racing competition similar to Mario Kart with an anime-influenced confectionary theme (including such hazards as Nesquik sand and eruptions caused by Mentos dropped in cola) and a brash imp named Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by sassy comic Sarah Silverman).

- Hero's Duty is a high-def first-person-shooter adventure starring the statuesque Marine Sgt. Calhoun (a take-no-prisoners Jane Lynch of Glee) with a Cy-Bug egg hatchery that is the eye-dazzling equal of any alien effect in Prometheus.
