What can you expect from Wonder Woman 1984?

The release of this movie was supposed to take place this time last year in December 2019 but this plan was axed due to scheduling issues with the director. The film was then set to premiere in June 2020, but it was postponed due to the pandemic. So this movie has been a long time coming!

The first film was set in Europe during the second world war, so this setting of America in the 1980s will be quite an exciting, but bizarre change for the fans of the first film.

The movie will once again star Gal Gadot and Chris Pine as Diana Prince and Steve Trevor respectively. This may be confusing for many of the fans considering ***SPOILER ALERT*** that Steve Trevor died at the end of the last movie and appears not to have aged at all in the 40 odd years that he was assumed dead. 

Also starring in this film is Bridesmaids and SNL alumnus Kristen Wiig who will play the classic comic book villain: Cheetah. 

The costumes alone in this film are enough of a reason to watch this movie. The stars are in full 80’s glamour and are head to toe in bright colours and items like parachute pants that haven’t seen the light of day in decades. 

This is also the perfect family favourite as the film manages to combine: action, comedy, romance and drama, making it the perfect festive film to enjoy as a family.
