Wreck-It Ralph, Disney’s upcoming animated feat of awesomeness, pays tribute to two things that I personally love, video games and candy. I’m going to be all (candy) corny and declare that Wreck-It Ralph is a delicious feast for the eyes. And the creation of the film was a sugar coated, eclectic and international journey.
The art team went to Spain and studied the work of Antoni Gaudí for inspiration for the buildings of Sugar Rush, they traveled to Detroit to see how cars are made for a factory scene, and they went to an international candy convention for a spark of sweetness which they needed for their candy based world. They also went to bakeries, a transport ship, a corn maze and a See’s Candy factory, all in the name of research. And it’s the details that make the film.
I was lucky enough to visit the Disney animation studios and the offices of Wreck-It Ralph where not only did we get insight in how the movie was made, saw amazing concept art for the characters but we also had the sweet (both figuratively and literally) opportunity to create candy cars in a no-holds barred blogger battle to see who could make the most impressive Sugar Rush inspired racer from cookies and candy.

Wreck-It Ralph opens nationwide on November 2nd.
