“Ralph Breaks the Internet” welcomes back to the big screen video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and misfit Vanellope (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game. Their quest takes them to the vast world of the internet, a world Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
Six years have past since the release of “Wreck-It Ralph” and our beloved dual Ralph and misfit Vanellope von Schweetz have developed a beautiful yet a bit dysfunctional bond due to Ralphs insecurities. Which plays out in a big way throughout the film.
The movie dances around with the word insecurity from the Internet and the security of the games to Ralph’s own personal insecurities. Last month I was blessed to attend the press junket, where the stars and Directors of the film was asked “What where their insecurities?” I found their answers very interesting and relatable. So, I thought I would share them below.
“I’m sometimes insecure about whether or not I can fit into a
group. Which is, so the princess scene comes from those insecurities.” ~ Pam Ribon
“I’m wearing Spanx right now. I was worried about fitting in this suit.” ~ Jack McBrayer
“I’m insecure about my knees right now. Just I had a moment where I was sitting like this. And I was like. . . Someone has this picture. And I yanked my knees up immediately. In this moment, my knees.” ~ Taraji P. Henson
“I’ve worked really hard not to let my insecurities slow me down. I think that’s one of the important things every person in their life has to do is learn not to judge yourself and be kind to yourself inside of your own thoughts.” ~ John C. Reilly
“You know, it moves around. Like grappling with being the age I am. I’ve never been this age. And it’s the oldest I’ve ever been. But then I’ll go, it’s the youngest I’ll ever be. That’s what I tell myself too. And then like, how I’m supposed to be. And then I go, however I am. I converse with myself, I’ll go see the cellulite on my thighs and I go ugh. And then I go I’m strong and my body works. And I love these thighs. These thighs help me stand and walk and move” ~ Sarah Silverman
Everyone has insecurities its how we deal with them is how we accomplish our goals and dreams.
