Frightening & Intense Scenes (6)

  • The third act of the film is quite intense.
  • Just like old Disney films from the 1950's, Wreck-It Ralph has it's fair share of darkness and themes of death.
  • Ralph reluctantly smashes a kart that he and Vanellope built together while the latter helplessly watches and cries. The scene is very stressful and upsetting.
  • In the final scene Ralph battles a giant bug monster with the main villain's face on top, which taunts him. This scene is played for dramatic effect and does not have the same comedy as earlier fight scenes. The scene peaks when Ralph attempts to sacrifice himself by jumping into a volcano so it will activate and destroy the main bad guy. Ralph is saved at the last second by Venelope but the villain is not.
  • Though it is a dream sequence, the game being unplugged and the likeable character of Vanellope disappearing into nothing could be upsetting to some viewers.
  • When the goofy villain King Candy is revealed as the more serious villain Turbo the unnatural, glitchy transformation may be scary. His later transformation into a bug monster may also be upsetting.
