Wreck-It Ralph just hit theaters and is sparking a lot of buzz.  The film involves “bad-guy” Ralph who is tired of being the villain in his arcade video game and sets out to find a new game to play in.

That got me thinking… if video game characters can roam free from game to game should they choose to do so, then movie characters should be able to do the same thing, right?  Ralph is portrayed as a villain in his game, but once players leave he’s not such a mean person after all.  Who’s to say that when we take movies out of our DVD players, the villains don’t do just that.  And that segues into…

Which Disney villain do you think is not really a bad guy, but just forced to play one every time someone watches their movie?  If this villain were to discover a whole collection of other Disney movies, which one would they jump into and what would they do there?  Who would they meet along the way?  Leave your answers in the comments.  This should be lots of fun!

    Ooo, what if Gaston was not really evil? What if he was originally cast to be a prince (maybe the Little Mermaid’s Prince Eric), but ended up in the wrong movie? Poor guy, he just does evil so well, he gets stuck in the role.

    I’d gotta say that Pete is misunderstood! I feel he’s really a good guy at heart who just has some feuds with the gang ever so often 😀
