There are a lot of films fans have been eagerly waiting for. At the top of the list is Wonder Woman 1984. Most fans assumed that the film would be a sequel to the first Wonder Woman film. But stars Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig says the film doesn’t feel like a sequel. They expressed this while talking about the film with Total Film Magazine. Gadot explained how the films differ.
In the first movie, we really explored the journey of the coming-of-age, of how Diana Prince became Wonder Woman, and owned her full strengths and powers…By the time the sequel begins, Diana – who was last seen fighting in World War I – is a lot different. We don’t pick up the story where we left it last, because it was 66 years ago.
So she’s been living for over six decades by herself, in man’s world, serving mankind and doing good. And this story is a story of its own. I mean, the only thing that we share in both stories is probably, you know, the fact that it’s Diana Prince and also Steve Trevor. But other than that, it’s a whole new world, and the era is different, and Diana is different, and the story is new.
Newcomer Kristen Wiig (well a newcomer as far as superhero films go) agrees that this sequel is different, if you can can call it a sequel.
It really doesn’t feel like a sequel in that… everything’s different. The posters, the music, everything…(laughing) Obviously the posters are different! I meant, like the style! A lot of time, with the sequel, you want to show the connection to the first one. And this one…
So both stars agree that this film tells a completely different story than the first one. Unfortunately what they cannot forsee is when the film will finally heat up the theaters. It has once again been postponed, this time for a October 2nd Cinema release. Whether it remains for this date depends on the progression of the virus, which at this point is not trending in a good direction.
Are you ready to see Wonder Woman 1984? Does the fact that it is not a direct sequel make any difference to you?
