Animated short film calls for end to cosmetic testing on animals

Hollywood filmmakers and movie stars have joined forces with Humane Society International (HSI) 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 perfectly legal in most of the world, including the Philippines, and is even making a comeback in some regions, subjecting untold thousands of animals to needless suffering and death.

Taika Waititi, Ricky Gervais, Zac Efron, Olivia Munn, Pom Klementieff, Tricia Helfer, and others have come together to help HSI change that by providing the voices for the Save Ralph film, which aims to shine a light on the suffering animals endure and engage consumers and policy makers in HSI’s mission to ban it. 

Writer and director Spencer Susser (Hesher, The Greatest Showman) and producer Jeff Vespa (Voices of Parkland) teamed up with the Arch Model studio of puppet maker supreme Andy Gent on the production to bring Ralph to life. 

The film is also being launched in Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Vietnamese with Rodrigo Santoro, Gad Elmelah, Denis Villeneuve, George Lopez, and others voicing the characters in those languages, and Maggie Q providing a video message of support.
