On November 7, 2018, I sat down with directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore to talk about their new film, Ralph Breaks The internet, a sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph. Also sitting down with us were Leslie Combemale of TheCredits.org and Meaghan Pacious of BeautifulBallad.org, who have the first and second questions, respectively.

Here, the directors answer questions about the film’s animation, its themes, the hard work everyone put into making it, what Merida (Kelly MacDonald) says in her thick Scottish accent, and how many bodies make up a giant monster at the end of the film. (We can thank my kid Moira for that question.)
There’s even the question of whether or not Bill Hader played J.P. Spamley. But we’ll let you find out about that yourself.

The film follows Princess Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) as she travels from her broken video game “Sugar Rush” to the vast, unchecked wild of the the internet. Her best friend Ralph (John C. Reilly) goes along with her, and both are forced to face truths about their own lives which will change their relationship with each other – and their futures – forever.

Was there anything I wish I could’ve done differently? Yes. Rich Moore directed three of my favorite episodes of “The Simpsons” and I never got to thank him for “Stark Raving Dad,” “Flaming Moe’s,” and “Cape Feare.”
(Rich, if you’re reading this, thank you.)
