Ralph Breaks The Internet Adds Gal Gadot As Feisty Street Racer Named Shank
It looks like the Wreck-It Ralph sequel won't settle for a few Disney princesses. It has just been revealed that Ralph Breaks the Internet will feature former beauty queen and current DCEU Amazonian princess Gal Gadot.
Gadot made the announcement through a new Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer she posted on her official Facebook page. The teaser introduces the new character named Shank, who will be voiced by the Wonder Woman actress.
Interestingly, Shank is a speed racer in the new game Slaughter Race. The competitive driver certainly sounds a lot like Gadot's Fast and the Furious character Giselle.
Although it is unclear whether Shank will be working with Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz, fans believe that Gadot will play a role model to Sarah Silverman's young racer. Shank certainly looks like someone Vanellope would look up to, especially because of her racing skills.
Gadot is undoubtedly proud of her animated character. The Justice League star hinted at what people could expect from Shank in Ralph Breaks the Internet.
“Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her. 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,” Gadot said.
It looks like Shank will be getting some competition from Vanellope in the Wreck-It Ralph sequel. The press release reads as follows:
"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."
There is a possibility that Vanellope will be making a new friend in the highly anticipated sequel. However, it is unclear if Ralph will be happy about being pushed aside by the new role model.
Ralph Breaks the Internet will hit theaters on November 21.
