‘Wonder Woman’ Gal Gadot voices Street Racer Shank in ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’

In a clear homage to her role in Fast & Furious movies playing street racer Gisele, Gal Gadot will go from playing Wonder Woman to a speed racer role in the Wreck-It Ralph sequel.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 will feature Gadot as Shank and Disney described her character in the official press release announcing Gadot was joining the voice cast.

“Ralph and Vanellope encounter Shank and her unusual cohorts when they venture to the internet in search of a replacement part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out car very seriously and doesn’t like to lose. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test—and Shank is impressed.”

“She is the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race,” said director Rich Moore. “Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart—that’s the duality of that character.”

The Israeli beauty turned to Twitter:

I’m so excited to finally announce that I am playing a character named Shank in Disney’s hitting theaters this November! Such an amazing experience to be apart of this project with such great creators and cast! Welcome to Slaughter Race! 🏎🏁😉

“Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her,” Gadot added. “But as the movie goes on you realize how fun, wise and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her.”

Back for the new film is Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) as she and Ralph (John C. Reilly) explore the Internet. The earlier footage teases a ton of references to big tech (Google, Snapchat, Twitter, Amazon and more) before promoting everything Disney: Star Wars, Marvel, Eeyore and more.

The list of Disney Princesses is long: voice actors include Kristen Bell (Anna from Frozen), Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid), Auli‘i Cravalho (Moana), Paige O’Hara (Belle from Beauty and the Beast), Ming-Na Wen of Mulan, Pocahontas’s Irene Bedard, Tangled’s Mandy Moore, Kelly MacDonald (Merida in Brave), The Princess and the Frog’s Anika Noni Rose and Frozen’s Idina Menzel.

Rich Moore (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph) and Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph) are co-directing the sequel, which also features the voices of Taraji P. Henson, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 arrives this fall on November 21, 2018.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Ralph Breaks the Internet leaves Litwak’s video arcade beh ind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not surviveRalph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to theworld wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way, including Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race.
