It seems Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has a hidden singing talent. Disney has announced it will release the soundtrack for the Walt Disney Animation Studios upcoming film, Ralph Breaks the Internet, on Nov. 16. The soundtrack features an original song titled “A Place Called Slaughter Race” which will mark the singing debut of Gadot as Shank. The Wonder Woman actress has sung the song along with Sarah Silverman, who is the voice of Vanellope von Schweetz in the film.
In Ralph Breaks the Internet, Gadot is voicing the character of Shank, who is a tough and talented driver in an intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race. Vanellope and Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) encounter Shank while they on a quest to find a replacement steering wheel for Vannellope’s own classic arcade racing game, Sugar Rush. While on their adventure, Vanellope develops a likeness for the world outside of Sugar Rush.
The song “A Place Called Slaughter Race” is said to be “in the vein of classic ‘I want’ songs in the Disney canon such as ‘Someday My Prince Will Come’ and ‘Part of Your World.'” It will showcase Vanellope’s desire to grow as a racer and as a person in the world outside Sugar Rush.
The music has been composed by Oscar-winning songwriter/composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast) with lyrics written by Phil Johnston and Grammy-winning producer Tom MacDougall, executive VP of Music at Disney.
“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 about her character earlier this year.
Written and directed by Phil Johnston, Ralph Breaks the Internet is the follow up to Disney’s 2012 animated feature Wreck-It Ralph. The film is set to arrive in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
