Sarah Silverman, John C. Reilly Dish On ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’

Nov 19, 2018, 2:49 PM

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” the sequel to “Wreck it Ralph,” is hitting theaters this Thanksgiving.

Film critic Jimmy Martin spoke to the stars about bringing the characters to life, and what those characters meant to them.

“I really like both of them,” Sarah Silverman said when asked if she preferred acting in front of the camera or bringing an animated character to life. “The great thing about the animated — and I know that’s what everybody says — is that you can come in in sweats.”

Silverman plays Vanellope, who was revealed to be a princess in the first film.

And as for her favorite Disney princesses?

“I like the one from ‘Brave,'” she said hesitantly. “Is she a princess?”

“I like Mulan,” she added.

“To tell you the truth, I bet a lot of girls don’t relate to princesses either,” said John C. Reilly, who plays Ralph. “That’s one of the reasons that we look at that in this movie.”

Reilly said “Ralph Breaks the Internet” looks at the unfair stereotypes of princesses and how they resonate with girls living in the modern world.

“Girls don’t live in castles and (have) big petticoats,” he said. “That’s a fantasy creation. I think that’s one of the cool things that Disney does with this film. It meets girls in a real place.”

Reilly said his favorite thing about Ralph is his heart. He said he knew the movie would be splashy, colorful and entertaining, but he wanted it to feel real emotionally.

“I don’t like to let the audience off the hook,” he said. “If I’m doing something funny, I like them to feel like, ‘Well, it could get serious at any moment.’ Or if I’m doing something dramatic, ‘It could get funny.'”

He added, “I think that’s the way life is.”

Martin said he loved the movie.

“I’m a huge fan of ‘Wreck-It Ralph,'” he said.

He noted the first movie focused a lot on pop culture, while the sequel focuses more on the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope.

When “Ralph Breaks the Internet” does go for the pop culture references, though, it goes hard.

“If you think Disney owns everything in this world, from Muppets to ‘Star Wars’ to Pixar films,” Martin said, “It’s all in there. They’re like: ‘We have the rights. Why not just use it?'”

With plenty of Easter Eggs, Martin said it’s a movie both kids and parents are going to enjoy.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” is rated PG.
