In recent times, Walt Disney Animation Studios have, in my opinion, released some stellar animated films. Indeed, Big Hero 6 is, for me, alongside Treasure Planet as being one of the best Disney animated films and Zootropolis and Wreck-It Ralph were great, entertaining movies.
A sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, titled Ralph Breaks The Internet, is set for a release in November 2018 and, in an interview with Collider, directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston had the chance to speak about the film.
Ralph Breaks The Internet
This is what Rich Moore and Phil Johnston had to say about the feedback they got for Wreck-It Ralph which they attempted to address in this sequel:
JOHNSTON: My brother-in-law sent me a sermon. It’s a true story. There was a church that the pastor gave a sermon that Ralph had evoked Jesus, at the end of the first movie, by sacrificing himself, and that was very surprising. It wasn’t the intent, but I was very pleased that it had reached an audience that was able to see that version of the story as a positive thing. That was surprising.
MOORE: I thought that was so great. I was like, “Wow, this movie is cutting across for kids, teenagers, and people who like video games and pop culture, but to hear that a sermon was written around it, of Ralph’s journey being one of sacrifice and selflessness, we were like, “Okay, we have something here.” It was funny.
JOHNSTON: It was surprising because we’re such goofballs, but there is a profound message, and there are simple human truths within the characters that made us at least want to keep living with them.
