Gal Gadot has made her Disney debut as race chick Shank in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 'Ralph Breaks the Internet' the sequel to Wreck-it Ralph which is supposed to release on November 21.

With it the 'Wonder Woman' actress has joined the league of actresses who will all be portraying 14 of Disney's most regal women like Ariel, Moana, Cinderella, Aurora, among others.

Gadot's character Shank who has been described as "a tough-as-nails street racer." Shank meets Ralph and Vanellope during their quest to find a replacement part for Sugar Rush. Vanellope and Shank immediately strike off to a race where Vanellope manages to earn Shank's respect.

According to director Rich Moore, Shank is the "coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race".  "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." Gal Gadot, who posted her character's first look on her Facebook and Instagram pages, said, "Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her."



She also mentions that Shank's character gradually develops as the plot progresses. "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." Gadot who gained an appreciation for her role as Gisele Yashar in 'Fast 5' and 'Fast & Furious 6'must have been quite up for the role as Gisele too had close acquaintances with racing.

As director/writer Phil Johnson told E!News, "There's so much texture to her voice and so much living in her voice. 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."

Along with Gal Gadot's Shank, Vanellope will also meet 14 of the most loved Disney Princesses who soon strike a friendship with her when they come to know that she too, technically, is a princess. All 14 princesses appear in 14 brand new looks, absolutely different from their traditional appearances. The 14 princesses which have brought together some of the most popular names like Ariel, Pocahontas, Elsa, Tiana, Aurora and many more will give out some pieces of their mind on gender politics in the past films. Sarah Silverman who portrays Vanellope said, “The princesses and Vanellope learn a lot from each other, but what happens in that discussion is acknowledging the… I don’t want to say just blatant sexism, but the kind of dated, antiquated idea of princesses and bringing it up to a feminist — meaning equal — code.”
