"This isn’t just a theme; it is a movement.
"Every child can leave the house and leave the room and leave the kitchen and roam free in the jungle of their families because they are the boss tonight.
"So, it is the future, it is wild, and it is beautiful. Join us in the jungle, we will see you tonight.”
Tonight's show, which kicks off at 9.35pm on RTÉ One, will feature two musical performances from Ryan.

This year's magical Lion King inspired set was created by the RTÉ production Design Department, led by Marcella Power. RTÉ's Costume and Make-Up departments, with costume led by Brigette Horan, have also been busily prepping the cast ahead of tonight's extravaganza.
"Viewers can expect a magical fun-filled Toy Show with wonderful children wearing magical costumes," Ms Horan said.
"The vision and thought process behind this year's designs by costume designer Stacey Gallagher and the Costume Design Team was to dramatically create nature at its best, bursting with colour and texture and delivering costume structures that will move effortlessly and comfortably for the children to perform and depict the characters," she added.
The Toy Show Appeal, which last year raised over €6m of much-needed funds for Irish charities will be back for a second year running.
