Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot Nabs Role In Wreck-It Ralph Sequel
"Welcome to Slaughter Race!"
Gal Gadot is set to tear up the big screen yet again after announcing that she's joining the cast of Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel.
The Wonder Woman star shared the news on her Instagram page, saying how excited she was to nab a role in Ralph Breaks The Internet.
"I'm so excited to finally announce that I'm playing a character named Shank!" she said.
"Such an amazing experience to be a part of this project with such great creators and cast!"
The 33-year-old teased fans with a photo of tough street-racer Shank behind the wheel in the online racing game, Slaughter Race, along with a short clip of the character in action.
From the looks of Shank's biker jacket, tattoos, furrowed brow and awesome driving skills, Gadot's gone and nabbed herself another bad-ass female role.
“Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her,” she said of her character. “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.”
The Israeli actor of course is best know for playing the titular lead in the 2017 blockbuster, Wonder Woman.
Gadot joins original Wreck-It Ralph cast members John C. Reilly as Ralph, Sarah Silverman as Vanellope and Jack McBrayer as Felix. Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk will also return to reprise their roles as Calhoun and KnowesMore respectively.
Along with Shank, Ralph Breaks The Internet will also see 14 of Disney's iconic princesses storm the stage -- and they're sporting entirely new looks to boot.
As seen in an Instagram post by Entertainment Weekly, Mulan, Ariel, Merida and co. have ditched their traditional garb for more modern, relaxed styles.
The gang of young female royals also includes Anna and Elsa of Frozen, and Tangled's Rapunzel, meaning that Kirsten Bell, Idina Menzel and Mandy Moore -- who starred as said characters in their respective films -- are also lending their voices.
Ralph Breaks The Internet is set for a Boxing Day theatre release in Australia.
