Ralph Breaks The Internet, the sequel to Wreck-It-Ralph, has been generally receiving good reviews which is great because I have been really looking forward to watching this film and seeing character like Ralph and Vanellope together again.

These characters are voiced by John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman respectively and they, along with Taraji P. Henson who voices Yesss in this movie, gave a press conference at a press day in Los Angeles to promote Ralph Breaks The Internet.

John C. Reilly + Sarah Silverman

John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman said this on whether they recorded their lines together for this film:

SILVERMAN: “We did it together, and we did get to improvise. They give us a lot of freedom. We collaborated a lot, and the script itself was so fantastic. It was really fun. They always booked an extra hour of time than they needed because we would get real chatty. There is definitely a very rated R comedy album somewhere in the audio footage of recording, for sure.”

REILLY: “Our friendship has aged five years since the last film, so it tracks with Ralph and Vanellope […] It was a real treat to be able to start at a place of intimacy, with Sarah and with (co-directors) Phil and Rich and (screenwriter) Pam [Ribon] and everybody […] We built these characters and the story together, so when it came time to start this one, we could start from a very advanced place, in terms of the conversations we could have about the relationships, and you can really see that in the film.”

I was one of the first people to insist that we try to be in the room together, as much as possible, because I know the way improv works, and it works best in real time […] What sets both of these movies apart is that feeling of heart and real emotion because we’re looking into each other’s eyes.”

I’ve done other animated work, where I didn’t meet the other actors, ever, and I’m sure there are practical people that say it doesn’t matter because it’s just a voice, but to me it does matter. I think it comes across in the film. It gives the film a soul that it might not have, if we weren’t there together.”

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson had this to say on what it was like to voice a character like Yesss for Ralph Breaks The Internet:

Voicing a character in a Disney animated film? I can check that off the bucket list, thank you. I just thought she was incredible. When Rich [Moore] and Phil [Johnston] brought her to me and explained her, I was like, “This is a no-brainer.” She’s a go-getter. She’s the head of a company. She’s no-nonsense. She has heart.”

My favorite scene is when Ralph finds himself in the comment room, and she comes in and tells him, “It’s not you, it’s them. They’re mean. They’re hurt, so they’re hurting you.” It grounded the film and the character for me, and it made her multi-dimensional. And then, I got to voice her with amazing actors. It was just a no-brainer for me.”
