GAL GADOT TO VOICE NEW CHARACTER SHANK IN
“RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET”

Ralph and Vanellope encounter Shank and her unusual cohorts when they venture to the internet in search of a replacement part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out car very seriously and doesn’t like to lose. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test—and Shank is impressed. “She is the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race,” said director Rich Moore. “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.”

Said Gadot, “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.”

According to director/writer Phil Johnston, Gadot adds extraordinary dimension to the character. “There’s so much texture to her voice and so much living in her voice,” he said. “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.”

Shank’s approach to racing—and life in general—opens Vanellope’s eyes to the limitless possibilities of the internet and the excitement of a new world that feels like home to her. Featuring the voices of John C. Reilly as Ralph, and Sarah Silverman as Vanellope, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

and impact of “Bambi”

A tour of the old animation building — including a walk through of Walt Disney’s office, work office and secretary’s office — showed the hands on leader that Disney was.

The Walt Disney Signature Series Classic “Bambi” has been iconic for including themes Disney had not had in their animated films before, the beautiful aesthetics and visual style and for despite all odds making an impact on animation style and storytelling.

“I saw it the first time at 24,” artist Paul Felix said. “I was spared the trauma.”

The themes introduced in this animated film included the death of a main character, the social commentary of the importance of the environment and the depiction of man as nature’s villain.

It also seemed that for the first time a major studio casted children to roles.

The voice actor for Bambi, Donald Dunagan was cast at age 5 after being in a few other roles and the voice actor for Thumper Peter Behn was 4 and had auditioned for Bambi but fit the role of Thumper better.

Dunagan said that he had been on studio lots before and there was a pompous feel to the people working at the studios, but not at Disney studios.

Behn said that they had so much help to do their lines, since they were so young, and even though they didn’t continue their careers in acting were thrilled with the experience.

Both Dunagan and Behn recall seeing Walt Disney, but didn’t place him as being the head of the studio.

Walt Disney was always running around, had his sleeves rolled up and helped out wherever he could.

Dunagan said Walt Disney was very hands on like a good leader would be.

“Bambi” faced several challenges because of the time period that it was made. Even though Release was pushed back because of World War 2 and the bombing of Pearl Harbor, it was eventually released and in the first run didn’t make any money.

Neither of the young voice actors knew that the movie would go on to reach the level it did and neither could have fathomed being cemented in history along with the movie which continues to inspire.

“Bambi,” which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, joined the Collection on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on May 23, and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on June 6.
