I just realized I may have given WDAS another "crossover" idea :biting: :facepalm:

The mystery chick has been revealed.

I like Shank's design (her name not so much); she sort of resembles Gal Gadot. The character could be interesting if she plays an important role in movie and isn't just one of the many people Ralph and Vanellope meet along the way.

well no wonder poor Calhoun has taken a back seat in this! a new tough chick for Vanelope to bond with! (Sigh) really couldn't that role have just gone to Calhoun?

No, because Calhoun is now a housewife. Her role is being a loving wife and mother. :P Seriously, hers and Felix's subplot is about adopting the Sugar Rush kids and becoming parents.

Let the shipping begin! :lol: I think it'd be fun having the two in video game together.

So, just like Calhoun in the first one. How original. :roll:

Well, you guys win. You are happy to know that there's something I now hate in the Princess scene: Why is Aurora sleeping a joke?! Come on! :( :x

Well, at least we got finally to see Merida's much debated contribution to this scene. But honestly, she wasn't that hard to understand.

Yes! And this scene (with this specific joke) was showed one year ago at the D23 Convention.

I thought you already knew that. Wasn't it part of the scene they showed at the D23 Expo? I agree about the Sleeping Beauty joke. From Shrek to Robot Chicken to SNL, the gag of Aurora always sleeping or being sleepy has been done to death.

So it's Shank who's going to come between Ralph and Vanellope and not Yesss as we originally thought. Interesting.

I knew Aurora was sleeping at the beginning. I 100% swear I actually missed the gag with Merida. The first time, I was in shock and confused over the scene, so of course I didn't catch Aurora sleeping. The second time, I was trying to understand Merida, so I didn't focus on the other girls. And right? This was a great time to at least develop her a tiny bit (she has a sense of humor and sarcasm at least). I hope if or when they do other projects, they develop her more.

I'm wonder now who will be the side character: Shank or Yess. Either way, one of them is the bad guy. And I already love her and the racing scene.

I prefer Yesss being the villain over Shank. Yesss is much more powerful and influential so she poses greater threat to our heroes. She's also more theatrical and glamorous so she'd be much more fun and interesting as a villain.

I agree! If done right, she could easily be the best recent Disney Animation villain. I mean, with the concept art, there is great great potential and there's already a reason why she is evil: To enslave Ralph and Vanellope for her site

^It's ridiculous how much Disney copied fanart, memes, and pop culture for the Disney Princess scene. They should have changed the title to "Fan Service: The Movie".

I like Shank's design and I think Gal Gadot is a good casting choice. Is she supposed to be Jewish like her voice actress? I also like that part of the movie will take place in a video game. The art direction of that online game looks great too. As for Merida's joke, I don't find it funny.

So true. I feel sorry for Ralph though. So far everything has been about Vanellope/The Princesses/Yess & now Gal Godot character. His sequel is basically just using him just for their own promotion. It's like having your Birthday party, but no one really came for you. And some people find this stuff funny, but this just makes me cringe :x

I don't know; she comes off more Latina to me than anything else.

Maybe. I'd say she has some Middle Eastern features, but I'm not sure either.

It seems so. After reading Gal Gadot's description of her character, I don't think she will be the villain. Maybe there will be some antagonistic characters like probably Yesss, but not a real villain like the directors said.


UPDATE

More details about Shank. I think we can now rule out she's the villain:

Quote:
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.”

Gadot said about her character, “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.”

Director/Writer Phil Johnston added: “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.”

Yeah. I'm sorry. That joke just doesn't make sense to me. Especially when you consider that there are other Scottish characters in Disney's animation studio films like Scrooge McDuck, Jock and Ben from Pocahontas. You could have either one of those characters saying the same thing as Merida and the joke would make about as much sense. It almost seems to me that nowadays all one has to do is say something in a snarky way with hardly any meaning and VOILA! Instant laughs!

It makes more sense than the "real" characters somehow getting transferred to the online world. I imagine they're theoretically sparked to life by Oh My Disney through the creation of the web pages, in the same way that all the video game characters are sparked to life by the game consoles through the creation of their coding. This is obviously an extension of a long-lived story ... well, I hate to say "trope," but yeah. Different forms media coming to life, whether it be toys or characters on the pages of books. It's not at all far-fetched to expect online characters and images to be given lives of their own as well.

*suddenly pictures the UD avatars hanging out and taking on caricatured personas of their users when no one is online* :lol: :P

Not to be redundant, but I digress ...

Not that it really matters to over-analyze, as it seems everyone has already decided that this sequence is either fun and hilarious, or the death of Disney as we know it.

I just don't understand why people who obviously aren't keen on the whole idea keep on aggressively nit-picking every little detail of the movie that gets released. :shrug:

I know fans here will probably hate this idea but I just see it as they are actors (with the same name) playing a role for their movies and merchandise. That the casual versions are where they get to be themselves. I don't mind it personally. You don't have to accept it as canon in the Disney universe, it's just for this movie. And fits with the premise of the first movie.

Anyway, I love the design of Shank. Not crazy about the name (keep reading it as skank, lol) but she looks cool and has an edge to her we don't typically see in animation.

Though I do think her eyes are a tad on a large side. This is coming from someone who will usually defend large eyes. Smaller eyes in this case would actually help with the edge they're trying to achieve. Not a big deal though.

I agree. Her design would have worked better if her eyes were a bit smaller. They would fit better with the rest of her features which are more realistically proportionate.
