GAL HAD FUN DOING CARTOON ACTION
Actor Gal Gadot says that she loved working on the upcoming animated film Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to WreckIt Ralph (2012).
“[The character] Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her,” Gadot says. “But as the movie goes on, you realise how fun, wise and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her.”
In the project, Gadot has lent her voice to the character of Shank, a tough and talented driver in an intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race.
Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, Ralph Breaks the Internet brings back Ralph and his fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. This time, the digital duo go on a journey to explore the world of the Internet, where they hope to find a replacement steering wheel for Vanellope’s own racing game, the arcade classic Sugar Rush.
“Ralph and Vanellope are imperfect characters,” says Academy Award-winning director Moore, who directed the original film as well. Wreck-It Ralph had an Oscar nom for Best Animated Feature Film in 2013, while Moore’s Zootopia won the Oscar in that category in 2017.
Moore added, “We love them because of their flaws. Their friendship is so genuine — the chemistry between them so engaging — that I think we were all anxious to know more about these characters.”
