Get a first look at her character below.

Within the movie, Vanellope and Ralph will literally hit the 'net in order to locate a part needed to fix Vanellope's arcade game, Sugar Rush. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out vehicle very seriously and doesn't like to lose.

Said Gadot, "Shank is unbelievable 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", the actress added in a statement. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test-and Shank is impressed.

Co-director Rich Moore said that the original versions of the princesses "felt like they were frozen in another time that made it hard for me to kind of identify with or understand them".

In Entertainment Weekly's first look at a scene in which Princess Vanellope has a little chill girl time with her fellow Disney princesses, we finally get to see what they where when they're off the clock!

Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet will feature a number of Disney Princesses, including Mulan, Jasmine, Elsa, Tiana, Snow White, and more, and in a new image, we can see what happens after Vanellope's initial meeting with them. Surely she'll have plenty to teach Vanellope von Schweetz about being a tough, badass racer.

"I'm very proud of my character being a Disney princess with a human waist", Silverman said.

Ralph Breaks the Internet opens in theaters on November 21, 2018.

In the short video Gadot posted along with the image of Shank, we get a little taste of what to expect with Shank and a small teaser of the plot of the movie, which involves an intimidating vehicle race called Slaughter Race.
