Wonder Women 1984 has finally gotten a trailer, which premiered during Brazil’s CCXP (Comic-Con Experience).
Director Patty Jenkins joined CCXP to answer some fan questions about the forthcoming film—and lead actress Gal Gadot made an appearance as well. You can watch the full trailer above.
The latest film is the successor to 2017’s Wonder Woman. While 1984 stars Gadot, has the same director and takes place after the events of the first film, executive producer Charles Roven shared with Vulture in March that they aren’t approaching it like a traditional sequel. “[Jenkins] was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel,” he said.
Last July, Jenkins addressed why the second instalment is set in the 1980s—a sizable time jump from the original’s WWI backdrop.
“One of my favourite things about making the original was that it took place during World War I in 1917, an era full of metaphors like modernity and the mechanized world,” she explained. “I grew up in the ’80s, and this has its own look and feel. The reason I am excited is it showed mankind at its best and worst. It was grand and wonderful, there was great music and there were elegant and beautiful things. 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.”
Wonder Woman 1984 will hit theatres June 5, 2020.
