According to Imagine Dragons' lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film's emotional themes are reflected in the song 'Zero', read a statement.

"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," said Reynolds.

"Ralph's internal struggle for self-acceptance really resonated with us, and this song speaks to that."

Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, Ralph Breaks the Internet opens in the US on 21 November.

"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," said Moore.

Johnston added: "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."

The song is a dichotomy in some ways, with sometimes heavy lyrics over pretty upbeat instrumentation, shared Reynolds.

"The result is a tone that is somewhat bittersweet, which felt appropriate given the complexity of Ralph as a character," he added.
