RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET | UK Premiere Welcomes Voice Talent, Filmmakers & Special Guests

image001

Filmmakers, voice talent and special guests walked the red carpet at Curzon Mayfair to celebrate Ralph and Vanellope’s return to the big screen. Attendees include voice talent John C. Reilly (voice of Ralph), Sarah Silverman (voice of Vanellope) and Gal Gadot (voice of Shank), plus filmmakers Rich Moore (director), Phil Johnston (director/screenwriter) and Clark Spencer (producer).

Special guests included U.K. celebs Dan TDM, Linda Robson, Naomi Isted, Sarah Cawood, Shanie Ryan and Stacey Solomon.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opened in U.S. theaters on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018.

Walt Disney Records To Release RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET Soundtrack

image001

WALT DISNEY RECORDS TO RELEASE RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

FEATURES ORIGINAL SONG PERFORMED BY SARAH SILVERMAN & GAL GADOT WITH MUSIC COMPOSED BY ALAN MENKEN, ORIGINAL END CREDIT SONG BY IMAGINE DRAGONS, SCORE BY HENRY JACKMAN, AND ADDITIONAL END CREDIT SONG BY JULIA MICHAELS

DIGITAL ALBUM AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 16

PHYSICAL CD SET FOR RELEASE NOVEMBER 30

Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack for the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Ralph Breaks the Internet” on Nov. 16. The soundtrack features original songs “A Place Called Slaughter Race” performed in the film by Sarah Silverman and Gal Gadot;  “Zero,” written and performed by Imagine Dragons; score by composer Henry Jackman (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Big Hero 6”), and “In This Place,” a pop version of “A Place Called Slaughter Race,” performed by Julia Michaels.  Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, produced by Clark Spencer and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot and Taraji P. Henson, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” hits U.S. theatres on Nov. 21.

The soundtrack and film feature “A Place Called Slaughter Race,” featuring Sarah Silverman, voice of Vanellope von Schweetz.   In the vein of classic “I want” songs in the Disney canon such as “Someday My Prince Will Come” and “Part of Your World,” the song showcases Vanellope’s desire to be part of the world outside Sugar Rush—to grow as a racer and as a person.  The song also features the singing debut of Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”) as Shank.  The music was composed by Oscar®-winning songwriter/composer Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pocahontas” and “Aladdin”) and the lyrics were written by Phil Johnston and GRAMMY®-winning producer Tom MacDougall (Frozen; Executive Vice President, Music at Disney).

The multi-platinum, GRAMMYwinning band, Imagine Dragons, wrote and recorded the end-credit song “Zero” for the film, embracing the struggle Ralph has with his evolving friendship with Vanellope. According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song. “It’s a pretty timely movie in a lot of ways in that it addresses some of the issues of identity and loneliness unique to this internet generation,” says Reynolds. “Ralph’s internal struggle for self-acceptance really resonated with us, and this song speaks to that.”  “Zero” is also featured on the band’s upcoming fourth studio album Origins available November 9.

Composer Henry Jackman, who scored 2012’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” returns to score the follow-up.

Jackman’s mission was to create a score that’s reminiscent of the first film, while embracing the new story and the vast, uncharted new world of the internet that Ralph and Vanellope must navigate to retrieve a part to save her game.   Says Jackman, “‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is one of the best animated films of recent times and I was really proud of the score. What makes this one different? There’s a clue in the title, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’—we’ve moved from the arcade to the internet. While we can retain some of the original material, there’s a new layer we had to create and integrate. There’s a distinction between arcade electronica and internet electronica, which sounds more modern.”

“There’s so many fun things to enjoy,” continues Jackman. “But I think the universality comes from the fact that it’s an important archetypal friendship story. Hidden behind all of this amazing technology and imagery is something very solid emotionally and narratively.”

Filmmakers called on GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels to perform the second end-credit song, “In This Place,” a pop version of “A Place Called Slaughter Race.”   “I think one of my favorite things about ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ is Vanellope,” says Michaels, “because she’s just completely misunderstood. I think a lot of people feel that way—misunderstood—and go through life trying to find their power. And when they find it, it’s really beautiful.”

Bonus Features:

BLU-RAY & DIGITAL*:

New Signature Collection Bonus

  • Stories from Walt’s Office: Walt & Flight – “Think of the happiest things, it’s the same as having wings”. One thing you’ll notice inside Walt Disney’s office are all of the models and pictures of airplanes. Walt loved planes and was an aficionado of flying. As a continuation of the “Stories from Walt’s Office” series, we’ll soar into the world of one of Walt’s favorite pastimes and look at the history behind the company airplane he used to scout Central Florida looking for the perfect place to build his second theme park.
  • A “Darling” Conversation with Wendy & John: Kathryn Beaumont and Paul Collins – Join Disney Legend Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Wendy) and Paul Collins (the voice of John) as they reunite for the first time in many years to reminisce and discuss their experiences working on Peter Pan, meeting Walt Disney and learning to fly … literally.

Limited edition lithograph artist talks about history
and impact of “Bambi”

Written by Jesus Figueroa

A tour of the old animation building — including a walk through of Walt Disney’s office, work office and secretary’s office — showed the hands on leader that Disney was.

The Walt Disney Signature Series Classic “Bambi” has been iconic for including themes Disney had not had in their animated films before, the beautiful aesthetics and visual style and for despite all odds making an impact on animation style and storytelling.

“I saw it the first time at 24,” artist Paul Felix said. “I was spared the trauma.”

The themes introduced in this animated film included the death of a main character, the social commentary of the importance of the environment and the depiction of man as nature’s villain.

It also seemed that for the first time a major studio casted children to roles.

The voice actor for Bambi, Donald Dunagan was cast at age 5 after being in a few other roles and the voice actor for Thumper Peter Behn was 4 and had auditioned for Bambi but fit the role of Thumper better.

Dunagan said that he had been on studio lots before and there was a pompous feel to the people working at the studios, but not at Disney studios.

Behn said that they had so much help to do their lines, since they were so young, and even though they didn’t continue their careers in acting were thrilled with the experience.

Both Dunagan and Behn recall seeing Walt Disney, but didn’t place him as being the head of the studio.

Walt Disney was always running around, had his sleeves rolled up and helped out wherever he could.

Dunagan said Walt Disney was very hands on like a good leader would be.

“Bambi” faced several challenges because of the time period that it was made. Even though Release was pushed back because of World War 2 and the bombing of Pearl Harbor, it was eventually released and in the first run didn’t make any money.

Neither of the young voice actors knew that the movie would go on to reach the level it did and neither could have fathomed being cemented in history along with the movie which continues to inspire.

“Bambi,” which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, joined the Collection on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on May 23, and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on June 6.
