Special thanks to Kevin T. for this submission

  • FSugino

    The actor credits have short 8-bit style animations running alongside the scrolling text. The remainder has 8-bit style backgrounds scrolling behind the credits. At the very end, the Disney closing graphic "glitches" and we see bits if 8-bit style gaming characters appear mixed into the screen.

  • Nekotripp

    The after credits were actually a reference to a so-called "kill screen", specifically level 256 of Pacman. Check this out for details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kill_screen

  • Ah! Thanks a lot for that! I'm aware of kill screens, the most famous ones being Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. I haven't seen the film yet unfortunately so I haven't been able to connect the dots yet. Thanks again for the extra info!

  • FSugino

    Thanks for the clarification. The kill screen caught me by surprise because the left half of the screen looked okay and I turned around to gather my stuff. I turned back and saw Ralph with the two cherries and managed a better look before the screen went blank.

    Got a pic of the kill screen when I went to another screening today. You can compare this with the Pacman screen that Nekotripp posted above.


  • Thanks for that, however I did remove the link. I'm a little paranoid with posting that sort of stuff while it's in theaters. Don't want to get the suits after me!

    I like how it has arcade characters in it though. Pretty cool!
