Gal Gadot & Kristen Wiig Say 'Wonder Woman 1984' Isn't Really a Sequel: 'It's Totally On Its Own'

Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig are opening up about how Wonder Woman 1984 really isn’t a sequel to the first Wonder Woman film at all.

The two stars spoke to Total Film magazine and revealed all the reasons why the movie should be considered a stand alone movie.

“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,” Gal shared. “She was fresh, she was green, she was a fish out of water, she was young…er!”

She continues, “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.”

“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.”

Kristen, who plays villain Cheetah, agreed.

“It really doesn’t feel like a sequel in that… everything’s different,” she says. “The posters, the music, everything…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…”

Gal adds, “It’s totally of its own. It’s true. I feel, in the first movie, a big thing that we played off was the naiveté of Diana. And she’s not naive anymore. She’s been around. She’s wiser. She’s more mature. We meet a very much evolved character in this one.”

Just recently, the release date for Wonder Woman 1984 changed again. See when you’ll be able to see it here…
