‘Save Ralph’: Where & How To Watch, Cast and Plot
It doesn’t matter what you are doing right now, you should stop and watch Save Ralph, a star-studded animated short that is part of a campaign to ban animal testing for cosmetic products. The short was released today, right after Easter, and features a bunny whose job is to make sure all the products you find in your toilet are safe for human use, even if it means putting himself at risk.

Using a fake-documentary format, Save Ralph follows the routine of the working rabbit Ralph, voiced by Taika Waititi. Ralph is blind from one eye, can only hear a ringing sound on his right year, and his body is covered by chemical burns that make it painful to move. The script gets Ralph’s testimony about the importance of his work, and the self-contempt the rabbit shows should be amusing in contrast to the real horrors he faces. However, Ralph’s situation is so shocking that’s hard to laugh at the irony, even when the rabbit constantly repeats his work is essential to human life, and he would be unemployed if animal testing were banned.

Save Ralph has an all-star cast helping to share its pressing message. The film stars Taika Waititi as Ralph, plus Ricky Gervais, Zac Efron, Olivia Munn, Pom Klementieff, and Tricia Helfer. Save Ralph comes from writer and director Spencer Susser and producer Jeff Vespa.
“Animals in cosmetic testing labs don’t have a choice and it’s our responsibility to do something about it,” Susser said in a press release. “When the opportunity came up to create a new campaign for Humane Society International, I felt that stop motion was the perfect way to deliver the message.
When you see the horrifying reality of the way animals are treated, you can’t help but look away. What I was hoping to do with this film was create something that delivers a message without being too heavy handed,” he continued. “I hope that audiences fall in love with Ralph and want to fight for him and other animals like him, so we can ban animal testing once and for all.”

“Save Ralph”: A project by Humane Society International
Hollywood filmmakers and movie stars have joined forces with Humane Society International to produce a powerful stop-motion animated short film, Save Ralph, calling for an end to cosmetic testing on animals around the world.
Although banned in 40 countries, the practice is still legal in most of the world, and even making a comeback in some regions, “subjecting untold thousands of animals to needless suffering and death,” Humane Society International (HIS) said.
The film is also being launched in Portuguese, Spanish, French and Vietnamese with Rodrigo Santoro, Denis Villeneuve and others voicing the characters in those languages, and Maggie Q providing a video message of support.
Humane Society International’s president, Jeffrey Flocken, said: “Save Ralph is a wake-up call that animals are still suffering for cosmetics, and now is the time for us to come together to ban it globally.
“Today we have an abundance of reliable, animal-free approaches for product safety assurance, so there’s no excuse for making animals like Ralph suffer to test cosmetics or their ingredients.”
The film features HSI’s campaign ‘spokesbunny’, Ralph, voiced by Taika Waititi, being interviewed as he goes through his daily routine as a “tester” in a toxicology lab.
HSI’s #SaveRalph campaign tackles the disturbing issue of animal testing in an original and unexpected way—using the story of one bunny to shine a light on the plight of countless rabbits and other animals suffering at this very moment in laboratories around the world.
It aims to engage viewers to help ban animal testing of cosmetics once and for all.
“Animals in cosmetic testing labs don’t have a choice and it’s our responsibility to do something about it,” Save Ralph director Spencer Susser said.
