I see Wreck-It Ralph as sort of the Who Framed Roger Rabbit? of the video game genre. The other characters are there for cameos, but the main plot revolves around original characters. I don't mind that, and I'm sure one reason Disney opted to go with new characters as the protagonists instead of established game characters is so they can freely franchise them as they wish should the movie be successful without having to get permission from any respective game studios.
Re: Trailer for Disney's next feature
The trailer was pretty funny, the only thing I found strange about it was the scene where Ralph is with other game villains. I get M. Bison (of Street Fighter) being there, but why Zangief? He wasn't a villain in the games, just another participant in the tournament. 'Gief was only portrayed as a baddie in the Jean-Claude Van Damme live-action SF movie and the USA Network animated series based on that movie.
Pity the producers couldn't get Dr. Wily (from Rockman/Mega Man) for that scene like they wanted.
