:hooray: ENGLISH…

Wreck-It Ralph recently opened in Japan, where it’s titled Sugar Rush. Besides enjoying the flick, Japanese moviegoers are doing something else: Comparing the character Vanellope to a real idol.

Namely, Japanese moviegoers are saying Vanellope looks like AKB48 member Ami Maeda. Yes, their eye colour is different, but their eyebrows, hair and facial expressions seem similar, no?

Maeda herself sees the resemblance. “Even today, while walking outside, I was told I looked like Vanellope,” she told Japanese TV. “I said, ‘Oh, thanks!’”

According to Walt Disney Japan, there’s certainly a possibility that Maeda was an influence.

While Sarah Silverman voiced the English version, Disney* seems to have looked to Japanese fashion and anime for Vanellope’s character design. What’s more, AKB48 contributed to the soundtrack, performing the song “Sugar Rush”. So maybe!

Compare for yourself!

*The original text says Pixar, which is wrong ^^u

I dunno what to say really LOL But I found it interesting...
Also I agree with people stating Vanellope is sort of an stylised Sarah Silverman =3

In fact, I seem to catch on the resemblance alright?

Did she voiced the Japanese Dub of Vanellope?
