Skrillex to Get Animated For Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph"


By Justin Charles 

While it was already revealed at Comic Con that Skrillex would be contributing songs to the soundtrack for upcoming Disney film 'Wreck-It Ralph', Total Film is now reporting the DJ will cameo in the film itself, DJing a party scene. Producer Clark Spencer told Total Film, "We asked him if we could do it," Spencer said. "We went to him first and said, 'Hey, we have this party scene in the world of Fix It Felix Jr, and we have a DJ and we think it would make a nice cameo if we put you into it.' And he was ecstatic.  We built his model, we put on his look, and we sent it to him to have him give us comments. And he said he would never wear non-black tennis shoes. He said 'My tennis shoes will always be black.' So we changed the tennis shoes to black.  You don't see them in the film, as he's behind the DJ booth, but they were in the model. He has seen the animation, and he's very, very excited about it."

Wreck-It Ralph is due out on November 2nd. It stars John C. Reilly as a video game villain who wishes to be a hero instead, and features cameos from a variety of classic video game stars.
