What’s better than having the first woman direct a summer tentpole superhero flick? Not much; but, a new trailer mashup splicing together the trailer for Patty Jenkins’ upcoming Wonder Woman movie with the theme song from the 1975 television series comes close.
YouTuber Sebastian Hughes uploaded the nostalgic clip over the weekend, combining footage of star Gal Gadot from both trailers for Jenkins’ film and her appearance in March’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice along with the funky tune that played over the opening titles of the Lynda Carter-starring program across three seasons on ABC and CBS.
Jenkins’ film is set during World War II and expands on Gadot’s character, Diana Prince, who was raised on a secluded island and trained to become a skilled warrior. An American pilot, Steve (Chris Pine), crash-lands his plane on Prince’s island, however, telling her of the international conflict happening beyond her borders. She decides to leave her home to help stop the conflict.
“I feel like Diana is really accessible. It’s very easy to relate to her. She has the heart of a human so she can be emotional, she’s curious, she’s compassionate, she loves people. And then she has the powers of a goddess,” Gadot told EW about the character during a recent interview. “She’s all for good, she fights for good, she believes in great. I want to be her. And in Wonder Woman, she has this naiveté in her. It isn’t stupid, it’s magical. I would want to be naïve like that again.”
Wonder Woman is in theaters everywhere on June 2. Watch the remixed trailer below.
