In a lawsuit filed last week in a Texas federal court, an artist named Dyke Robinson has alleged that Disney stole his ideas for its 2012 feature Wreck-It Ralph.
Robinson says that he submitted a manuscript called Digiland to Disney in 2012, the same year that the Disney film was released. Disney, he claims, infringed on many his ideas, including the concept for Wreck-It Ralph‘s candy-filled universe Sugar Rush. An educational animated series that Robinson created called DigiBots, which may or may not be related to his Digiland idea, can be found online:
Robinson is suing Disney for $10 million in statutory damages.
