Patty Jenkins Reveals Why The Second Wonder Woman Movie Is Set In The 80s!
As those who are looking forward to watching Wonder Woman 1984 know already, the production for the sequel has only started less than a month ago so there are a lot of things fans have no idea about and that applies to the title as well! Not only that but because of this, director Patty Jenkins and actors Gal Gadot and Chris Pine could not present a trailer while at Comic-Con.
That does not mean there was no new and precious information, however.
During their panel, they explained the reason why the story is set in the 80s.
After all, the first movie took place during the First World War so it would make sense for the sequel to happen during WW II, right?
Instead, it jumps to the mid-80s and people have been curious to learn why that is.
Jenkins explained during the panel that ‘One of my favorite things about creating the original was that it took place during World War I, an era full of metaphors like modernity and the mechanized world. I grew up in the 1980s, and this has its own look and feel. The reason I'm excited is it showed mankind at its best and at its worst. It was grand and wonderful, there was great music, and there were elegant and beautiful things.’
He went on: ‘But other things about the decade revealed the worst of us. To have Wonder Woman in that period of time that was us at our most extreme is wonderful.’ That makes a lot of sense!
Wonder Woman 1984 premieres November 1, 2019. Are you looking forward to watching it?
