What they’re saying about “Zero”:

In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. According to Imagine Dragons, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song “Zero.”

  • Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds: “It’s a pretty timely movie in a lot of ways in that it addresses some of the issues of identity and loneliness unique to this internet generation. Ralph’s internal struggle for self-acceptance really resonated with us, and this song speaks to that.”
  • Ralph Breaks the Internet director Rich Moore: “It’s a bold choice for an end-credit song because it’s about someone who feels like a zero, someone who hasn’t always felt worthy, someone who’s allowed his entire sense of self to rely on a single friendship. When that friendship is threatened, there’s a lot of insecurity.”
  • Ralph Breaks the Internet director Phil Johnston: “We can all relate to that feeling. But the song tells us we’re not alone. They nailed the theme of the movie in a way that also makes you want to dance.”
  • Dan Reynolds: “The song is a dichotomy in some ways, with sometimes heavy lyrics over pretty upbeat instrumentation. The result is a tone that is somewhat bittersweet, which felt appropriate given the complexity of Ralph as a character.”
