We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special.. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I’m so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie. Couldn’t ask for better partners on this.. I’m so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves .. I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you! Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience.. This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud… Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day. I’m so happy and excited, can’t wait to share it with you in 2020! Gal
Plot details are still scarce, and with the film not set to arrive until summer 2020, we’re likely to remain in the dark for a while. Haleigh Foutch saw some footage at Comic-Con earlier this year, and said that it feels like a totally different movie from 2017’s Wonder Woman:
This is undeniably a different vibe for the DCEU films to date, brighter than ever and almost a little silly, to be honest. Wonder Woman 1984 is full-blast goodness and positivity, with a candy-coated 1980s polish. As for the setting, Jenkins explained that eras act as metaphors and the 80s were in many ways humanity at its best and worst. “It was grand and wonderful with great music, at the same time we were revealing the worst of us,” Jenkins said, point to the Cold War and threats of nuclear escalation as some examples of the latter.
While the film was originally slated for the end of 2019, I’m a little glad we’ll have some breathing room for the movie and that director Patty Jenkins will have plenty of time to get the movie just right in the 18 months ahead.
Wonder Woman 1984 opens June 5, 2020 and also stars Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Pedro Pascal.
