Maybe you have been wondering why there was no word on Mario and other characters in the upcoming Disney film Wreck-It Ralph, well that question was asked yesterday at one of the panel discussion at San Diego Comic Con. After showing off footage from its upcoming video game tale, Wreck-It Ralph, hitting theatres November 2, 2012. Q&A followed, one question was asked to director Rich Moore, why there werent other notable and classic video game cameos seen in the first trailer. He replied: “Why would I talk about that certain mustachioed plumber guy?”, “And his brother, who wanted more money?” Basically it sounded like he wanted to include other icons in the movie, but couldn’t because of rights/money issues. We have seen this before in Toy Story with Mattel and Sesame Workshops with Disney’s The Muppets.
