The official music video for Imagine Dragons’ new song “Zero” arrived ahead of the November 9, 2018 release of their fourth studio album, Origins. “Zero” is the end credit song for the much anticipated Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to Disney’s 2012 Wreck-It Ralph. While the tune’s catchy, the lyrics are pretty bleak:
“Let me show you what it’s like to always feel feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello hello let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real real”
Commenting on the film’s emotional themes, Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds said, “They are compelling because they are real to each of us, personally. That journey of feeling like nothing and trying to realize and recognize your worth as a human is an important part of life. And given the distorted version of reality kids face online and the expectations that come with it, this struggle is real for so many people right now.”
“Zero” will also be included on Walt Disney Records’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Ralph Breaks the Internet. The soundtrack will be released on November 16 2018 followed by the film’s release in theaters on November 21st.
Rich Moore (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph) and Phil Johnston (co-writer Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, writer, Cedar Rapids) directed the sequel, with Clark Spencer (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Bolt, Lilo & Stitch) producing.
The Ralph Breaks the Internet Plot:
In Ralph Breaks the Internet, video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way.
Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-maing site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
