Gal Gadot (Justice League, Wonder Woman) is voicing a new characte, the tough driver Shank, in an intense and gritty online racing game called “Slaughter Race,” in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks the Internet, which hits theaters this Thanksgiving.

According to Disney, 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.”

Said Gadot: “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.”

According to director/writer Phil Johnston, Gadot adds extraordinary dimension to the character: “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.”

Shank’s approach to racing — and life in general — opens Vanellope’s eyes to the limitless possibilities of the internet and the excitement of a new world that feels like home to her.

Featuring the voices of John C. Reilly as Ralph, and Sarah Silverman as Vanellope, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
