Interesting. I wonder if the ending credits will spoof DDR or another music game that originated in Japan? Otherwise, it just doesn't make much sense to have a random Japanese song as the theme for a Disney movie.

Sugar Rush seems to be a spoof of Mario Cart so I can AKB48 doing a "Ponytail to Shushu" type of song for it. While I have low expectations for "Wreck It Ralph", I am a fan of video games and will definitely go see it for the video game references alone Smile

And Akimoto's plot for world domination now continues... using Disney...

I'm intrigued and frightened by this at the same time. Definitely going to be looking forward to hearing it.

It's not even going to be called Wreck-It Ralph in Japan. It's going to be retitled Sugar Rush to obviously cash in on AKB48's involvement.

Don't knock it (if it fits), just roll with it. Wink

Which means some AKB alum is probably going to be playing that character's voice in the Japanese dub... which as has been stated, the going to be called Sugar Rush.


I want to see this movie...hard.
