It seems as of recently that a day doesn’t go by without some sort of news surrounding Ralph Breaks the Internet, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 animated hit. Today, though a Friday, is no different.
But today’s news is super awesome as Walt Disney Studios has announced that Gal Gadot is joining the cast. Though the newly minted Wonder Woman is a Princess in her own right, she won’t be joining the entourage of past Disney Princesses to make a cameo in the film. Instead Gadot will lend her voice to Shank, a tough and talented driver in the intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race.
“Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her,” Gadot said. “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.”
In the film Shank takes her role within the world of Slaughter Race very seriously - and she doesn’t like to loose. When Vanellope finds herself opposite Shank in a street race, she must put her Sugar Rush driving skills to the test - and it goes without saying that Shank is impressed.
John. C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman return as Ralph and Vanellope respectively, who together venture into the world of the internet in hopes of finding a replacement part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. We’ll find out if they succeed when Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters on November 21.
