First Still from 'Wreck-It Ralph' Has Very Sad (Almost Suicidal) Homeless Game Characters

I've ignored this, but this still and synopsis...
  • The bad-guy character in a classic game who longs to be a hero brings trouble to his entire arcade after sneaking into a new first-person shooter game and unleashing a deadly enemy. 
...changed my mind. Sounds like a cool plot, and the still looks good. These guys are cute.

Interesting that Disney would acknowledge homelessness. Don't believe I've seen that from them.

If you don't know, NPC is non-player character and FPS is first-person shooter. Which means the blue dragon is so desperate he'll be a computer-controlled character (a target) in a shooter game...for food. At least he knows the implications of what he's saying -- see: exclamation point.

Of course, in order for the dragon to enjoy his food, the player will have to miss.

Could we be in for social allegory from 'Wreck-It Ralph'? A new Disney for the 21st century? Hmm...
