Gal Gadot Will Voice A Race Car Driver In Disney’s ‘Wreck It Ralph 2’

Disney fans, meet the newest character on the block: she’s not a princess, she’s a leather-wearing race car driver.

Gal Gadot is slated to star in Disney’s “Ralph Breaks The Internet”, the sequel to the box office hit, “Wreck It Ralph”.

She will provide her voice for the character Shank in the upcoming movie. Shank is a powerhouse female, a tenacious and skilled driver.

Gadot has spoken out about the role, saying, “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.”

Co-director and writer Phil Johnson said of the choice to cast Gadot, “There’s so much texture to her voice and so much living in her voice,” he said. “If Ralph is Vanellope’s big-brother figure, we wanted a big-sister figure. 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.”

Mazels to our favorite superhero for landing such a fun role! See you on November 21, Shank!
