Not long after Disney Animation announced that Gadot would be voicing a brand-new racing character named Shank, the studio released a short, but action-packed trailer, showcasing the Wonder Woman actress's contribution to the upcoming sequel. Shank's game, Slaughter Race, is a dark and gritty collection of dirty streets, grimy tunnels, and octane-fueled vehicles. Given Ralph's awkwardness around Shank, we suspect he might develop a crush for her over the course of the film.
The best part of the sneak peek comes at the end, however, when Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) is hanging out with all the Disney princesses. Merida (Brave's Kelly Macdonald) goes on a fast-paced rant in her thick Scottish accent. "No one can understand her," says Moana (Auliʻi Cravalho), which Anna (Frozen's Kristen Bell) follows up with, "She's from the other studio." It's a very funny meta gag that pokes fun at the difference between Disney Animation and Pixar.
Featuring the original cast of John C. Reilly,Silverman, Ed O'Neill, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, and even Alan Tudyk (the John Ratzenberger equivalent of Disney Animation), Wreck-It-Ralph 2 follows Ralph and Vanellope, as they plug into the Internet, searching for a new part to the latter's game, Sugar Rush. Joining the cast are Taraji P. Henson, Ana Ortiz, Susan Lucci, and Bill Hader.
In addition to Macdonald, Cravalho, and Bell, Ming-Na Wen (Mulan), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel), Jodi Benson (Ariel), Paige O'Hara (Belle), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), and Irene Bedard (Pocahontas) reprise some of their most iconic voice roles from Disney's animation renaissance. As for the Golden Age royalty like Aurora, Snow White, and Cinderella, Kate Higgins, Pamela Ribon, and Jennifer Hale will handle these old school princesses.
Ralph Breaks the Internet will start scoring high with audiences Nov. 21.
