For one night only, two of the world’s most celebrated songwriters and composers will take to the stage for “Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken: The Disney Songbook.” The concert will take place at the D23 Expo 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center in the D23 Expo Arena on Saturday, August 10.
Together Sherman and Menken have won a combined 10 Academy Awards for their work with Disney, and have composed music and songs for more than three dozen Disney feature films, over two dozen Disney Park attractions and half a dozen Disney musicals on Broadway.

This review is based on the Ultimate Collector's Edition 4-Disc Set (3D Blu-ray, 2D Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy)
Video game villain Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) decides he no longer wants to be the bad guy, and abandons his game to become a hero. 8-bit hilarity ensues. Featuring the voices of Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, and Sarah Silverman.
Directed by Rich Moore
I'll be honest, I was ready to hate Wreck It Ralph before I saw it.
