Ralph will definitely “break the internet” in Wreck It Ralph 2 as Wonder Woman Gal Gadot reveals she’s voicing Shank, a self-assured driver in an intense online racing game called Slaughter Race. Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2 arrives in cinemas in November.
Gal Gadot, known for her powerhouse performances in Wonder Woman and Justice League, will voice the character of Shank in new Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2. It arrives in UK cinemas this November.
Shank is a new character who comes into the lives of Ralph and Vanellope when they encounter her on a journey into the internet to find a new part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. Shank’s a determined winner but is impressed when she finds Vanellope a skilled racer too. Through Shank, Vanellope’s eyes are opened to a new world.
Gadot says, “Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her. But as the movie goes on you realise how fun, wise and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her.”
Adds director/writer Phil Johnston, speaking about what Gadot brings to the role, “There’s so much texture to her voice and so much living in her voice.” He relates the character to being Vanellope’s “big sister” just as Ralph is her “big brother”.
“We wanted someone that Vanellope would look up to, and Gal is definitely someone kids — and a lot of adults I know — aspire to emulate. I can’t imagine anyone else embodying that part.”
Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2 arrives in UK cinemas on November 30.
