WONDER WOMAN Actress Gal Gadot Makes Her Singing Debut In RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

The soundtrack to Ralph Breaks the Internet will release in late November and features a track sung by Sarah Silverman (Vanellope) and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, who voices Shank in the film.

Not only is Gal Gadot a bada** Amazonian warrior, she's also apparently a pretty darn good singer as well. Disney announced today plans to release the soundtrack for Ralph Breaks the Internet on November 16 and in doing so also revealed that Gal Gadot, who voices Shank in the film, will be featured in one of the original songs.

Gadot, who is best known around these parts for bringing the DC superhero Wonder Woman to life on the big screen, will be featured in a song called "A Place Called Slaughter Race." She will sing alongside Sarah Silverman's character Vanellope von Schweetz.

In the film, Vanellope and Ralph head to the internet to find a missing piece for her game Sugar Rush. But while on their adventure, Vanellope develops a fondness 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 be part of the world outside Sugar Rush—to grow as a racer and as a person."

Unfortunately, we haven't heard a snippet or preview of the song, but the music was written by Oscar-winning songwriter/composer Alan Menken, who has worked on classics like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, so you know it will be good. The lyrics were written by Phil Johnston and Grammy-winning producer Tom MacDougall, executive VP of Music at Disney.

The Ralph Breaks the Internet soundtrack also features the catchy tune "Zero " from the Grammy-winning, multi-platinum band Imagine Dragons. "Zero" will play during the end credits of the film and is said to embrace "the struggle Ralph has with his evolving friendship with Vanellope." Imagine Dragons released the official music video for "Zero" earlier this week, which you can watch here. The song will also be featured on the band's upcoming fourth studio album Origins, which will be available on November 9.

A few other notable tracks on the soundtrack include "In This Place," a pop version of "A Place Called Slaughter Race," performed by Julia Michaels. Ralph Breaks the Internet has been scored by composer Henry Jackman, who also scored 2012's Wreck-It Ralph. Jackman said of his working on the sequel:
“‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is one of the best animated films of recent times and I was really proud of the score. What makes this one different? There’s a clue in the title, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’—we’ve moved from the arcade to the internet. While we can retain some of the original material, there’s a new layer we had to create and integrate. There’s a distinction between arcade electronica and internet electronica, which sounds more modern.”

There are so many fun things to enjoy. But I think the universality comes from the fact that it’s an important archetypal friendship story. Hidden behind all of this amazing technology and imagery is something very solid emotionally and narratively.”

“Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters on November 21. The digital album will be available on November 16, while a physical CD will release on November 30.
