Wreck-It Ralph Soundtrack Boasts Original Owl City, Skrillex Tracks
Video game fans know that a great musical score can make or break an anticipated title. The same will likely go for Rich Moore’s Wreck-It Ralph, the animated adventure centered around an unhappy video game villain (voiced by John C. Reilly). “Music is another way to set the stage and make [the film’s] worlds completely different,” said producer Clark Spencer in a recent release.
To that end, Walt Disney Studios has confirmed the various artists who will be contributing to the Ralph score, which will be composed by Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass). In the same release, Disney confirmed that original songs and music from Skrillex, AKB48, Owl City and Buckner & Garcia will be in the film and on the soundtrack, which will be in stores beginning on October 30th.
“When it came to the music of Wreck-It Ralph, we wanted to work with some really talented artists and I love that they aren’t necessarily the people audiences expect to hear in a Disney animated movie,” Moore said. “But when they hear the music and how it supports the story and drives the emotion, they’ll say, ‘This is perfect.’”
We’ll be able to see that movie on November 2nd, when Wreck-It Ralph reaches theaters. In addition to Reilly, it stars Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch in the story of a classic 8-bit video game villain who tires of the monotony of his game and escapes into far more modern games. The animation looks fantastic, now we’re anxious to hear the original score. Do you think that you’ll pick up the film’s soundtrack once it’s available? Does the presence of pop stars like Owl City make you more or less interested in a film’s score? Let us know what you think.
