The first few minutes of ‘Wonder Woman: 1984′ were released: are you excited?

WW84

Wonder Woman 1984 will be available to stream on Christmas morning. I’m so thrilled with this decision. Even if you aren’t that into the Justice League heroes or movies or whatever, the first film made enough of a splash to recognize this is big news. It’s an event, one we thought we wouldn’t get until next summer and they’re letting us have it in our living rooms, on Christmas morning. That’s fun.

If the announcement didn’t excite you, does this? WB just released the opening scene. Take a look:

Does that turn the tide of your enthusiasm? I was already kind of excited to see WW84, so I don’t count. I love that they went back to Themyscira and brought Hippolyta and Antiope out of the gate. I hope there’s more of them. They were so *sigh* awesome. Also, Gal Gadot was recently talking about Lilly Aspell, who plays the young Diana in that scene and could not say enough about her. Apparently, Lilly was so good, they couldn’t find anyone to stunt her, so she ended up doing her own stunts. She was 12!

I don’t know much about the story. I still haven’t figured out how Chris Pine is coming back in any logical sense. And I don’t know the canon they’re dealing with so I’m going in blind, by choice. My hope is that now that Patty Jenkins and Gal have proved themselves with the first film, they can have some fun with this one, stretch their legs a little. And I seriously hope they worked out any plot holes, so they don’t blow the ending like in the first film. Early reviews are pretty good, so fingers crossed. My husband is most excited about Kristen Wiig, both her character but also what she’s going to do with it. I’m looking forward to all of it. I have not broached the subject of whether we get to watch this on Christmas Day or not. Maybe I could ask for that from Santa?

Oh, and if you aren’t excited by this, maybe this spoiler that Kaiser posted yesterday might get you there, because it certainly caught my attention. Plus, Lynda Carter has a cameo in this, doesn’t she? *squee*

    Yeah I will definitely be watching this Christmas night. It’s something to look forward to during a very scaled-down Christmas for me.

    • Salted Watermelon says:

      I’m considering myself lucky. I’ve had to miss Christmas 2 out of the last 4 years, so I’m kind of used to it. My oldest was born on Christmas Day in 2016, and then we all had the stomach bug in 2018. I keep saying that we’re 50/50 on Christmases, so it’s just our year to stay home and have a quiet Christmas. We’re going to wear matching pajamas and make homemade cinnamon rolls and just be cozy for the day with our boys.

      And then we are absolutely going to watch Wonder Woman because we are so pumped for this movie.

    Ooof cannot wait, and Pedro pascal! MOAR PEDRO!!!

    You can find out how Chris Pine comes back easily enough on the internet. As someone who couldn’t help myself, because Chris Pine is the Best Chris, I’d highly recommend NOT seeking out this information.

    • H says:

      Now I’m going to Google. I go back and forth between Evans and Pine as best Chris. I’d pick Pine for reading poetry with (he’s an English major) and Evans for walking my dogs with.

    For the first time in at least four years I really wish I lived in the US!

    Apparently a quarter of UK cinemas will screen it but no way I’m setting foot in one of those for some month to come.

  5. Seraphina says:

    As a young girl who grew up watching Linda Carter as WW, all I can say is: HELLLLLLL YES I will be watching.

    • lucy2 says:

      Me too! I loved Lynda’s WW back in the day.
      I really enjoyed the first film, and I think Gal is perfect for the role, so I’m definitely watching and looking forward to it. Plus 80s clothes and music, and I also really like Kristen Wiig, so I’m excited to see it.

  6. sa says:

    I can’t watch anything that’s been released because I know it will just make me more impatient for the movie. I am so ready to watch this movie!

  7. Kate says:

    What we’re the plot holes from the first movie?!
    Def got excited and emotional chills watching this trailer, I’m here for #2

  8. Ravensdaughter says:

    Damn! This and “Dune” are what movie theaters are for!

  9. Who ARE these people? says:

    Not going into a theatre here in Canada yet Warners not releasing it for streaming. We’ll wait, but I hope they change their minds and stick it onto the service that carries some HBO Max. With so many theatres closed, they could still make money that way. If the movie is any good, I’d pay to see it again later on the big screen.

    • Mia4s says:

      They are releasing it in Canada! It won’t be included in a streaming service (since we have no HBO Max) but it will be available through On Demand services. Should be around $30 for the rental. They’re getting my money! 😁

      Between this and the Mandalorian and that Netflix kids movie, it’s a very Pedro Christmas! Works for me!

      • StrawberryBlonde says:

        They are?? We have Crave (with HBO) but we assumed we wouldn’t be able to get it. But if it’s for rent for $20-$30 my hubby and I would likely watch it Christmas night.

  10. Betsy says:

    I don’t have HBO Max, and no one in the house currently has paid employment, so I won’t be watching it, but it’s not because I don’t want to!

    • lucy2 says:

      Hope things improve soon for you all!

      I think you can get a free trial of HBO max for like a week, if you do want to see that, and then cancel before the week is up.

  11. Case says:

    I’ve been ready to watch this movie since it was first scheduled to come out LAST NOVEMBER.

  12. Pulplove says:

    I would so very much love to see it! Just listening to Gal’s voice is a joy, really like her accent, she’s wonderful in that role. And Pedro, goodness, sexy as hell.

    Unfortunately, all cinemas are closed in my country and we don’t have HBO Max, so I’m here with a little violin in the corner…

    I can’t care any less for this movie, id rather save money for family whose income has stopped due to covid.
