Gal Gadot, star of “Wonder Woman,” revealed she’s voicing a new character named Shank in Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

Shank is described as a tough and talented driver in an intense online racing game called Slaughter Race. In the upcoming sequel to “Wreck-It Ralph,” Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) encounter Shank when they venture into the internet. When Vanellope and Shank end up competing in a race, Vanellope’s Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test.

“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.”

Gadot added, “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.”


“There’s so much texture to her voice and so much living in her voice,” said director/writer Phil Johnston. “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.”

See how Shank’s approach to life and racing help introduce Vanellope to the wonders of the internet when “Ralph Breaks the Internet” arrives in theaters on November 21.
