“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,” Gadot said in the statement.
The 33-year-old actress joined voice actors Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Kristen Bell (Anna), Jodi Benson (Ariel), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Jennifer Hale (Cinderella), Taraji P. Henson (Yesss), Kate Higgins (Aurora), Jane Lynch (Sgt. Tamora Jean Calhoun), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Kelly Macdonald (Merida), Jack McBrayer (Fix-It Felix Jr.), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) among others.
Gadot launched her film career as Gisele Yashar in the “Fast and the Furious” franchise but her breakout came when she joined the DC Extended Universe as Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” followed by the solo film “Wonder Woman” (2017) and the ensemble “Justice League” (2017).
Wreck-It Ralph grossed more than USD 470 million worldwide in 2012 and received an Oscar nomination.
The sequel to the 2012 hit “Wreck-It Ralph” will hit theaters on November 21.
