Disney and Imagine Dragons have released a new music video for 'Zero,' the end credits song for 'Ralph Breaks the Internet', set to open in theatres on November 21.
Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds said the the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song, particularly issues of identity and loneliness that affect a generation that is more connected than ever before. “They are compelling because they are real to each of us, personally,” he said. “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.”

The music video has been directed by Dave Meyers, who was recently recognized at the Video Music Awards for video of the year ('Havana' by Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug), best pop video ('No Tears Left to Cry' by Ariana Grande) and best visual effects ('All the Stars' by Kendrick Lamar ft. SZA).
'Ralph Breaks the Internet,' the sequel to 2012's arcade-themed Wreck-It Ralph, reunites Ralph (John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) for a trip into cyberspace—imagined as a real place. The two 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 (Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-maing site BuzzzTube, and Shank (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.
Directed by Rich Moore (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph) and Phil Johnston, and produced by Clark Spencer (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Bolt, Lilo & Stitch), 'Ralph Breaks the Internet' hits theaters on November 21.
'Zero' will also be featured on Walt Disney Records’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The digital album is available from November 16. Imagine Dragons will release their fourth studio album, 'Origins,' featuring 'Natural' and 'Zero', on November 9 via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.
