Stefanie Scott from Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm” talked in a new interview with The Magazine about her role in Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph.”
You voice Moppet Girl in the upcoming family film, WRECK-IT RALPH. What can you tell us about the film and your character?
I am so excited I got to be a part of WRECK-IT RALPH. I got the chance to see it and it’s adorable. The movie is about what happens when the arcade goes to sleep at night and it closes. You get to see the characters come to life and go to Game Central Station. They have their own lives and that’s what is so cool. Wreck-It Ralph is misunderstood for being the villain, when he just wants to be a hero and get his gold medal. I play Moppet Girl who is the first one to notice that Wreck-It Ralph is missing. She notices what’s going on and that creates a whole series of events for all of the games. She’s a young girl who loves video games but is also kind of a wallflower type. I had a blast. It was a dream of mine to be in a Disney animated feature film.
When you were recording WRECK-IT RALPH, how did you get yourself into character?
When you’re recording an animated piece, it’s so much different because you don’t really get to see the sets and your character and everything. I saw a couple of pictures and I came in with my script. It’s so funny because, as you’re saying your lines, you also have to do the real life things like sighing and breathing. We literally spent ten minutes just giggling, playing video games and trying to make all of the noises that I would make if I was really shooting the guns and shooting the arrows. I had so much fun. The film focuses on arcade games and their characters.
What is your favourite arcade game?
Growing up, I’d play Mario Kart with my brothers. I have two older brothers and they would be so competitive because I was their younger sister and they would never let me win! I beat them a couple times.
