The superheroine looks a lot like the Disney princess.

During the summer of 2016, the trailer for Wonder woman opened on the rescue on a beach of a soldier of the First World War (Chris Pine) by Diana (Gal gadot), the heroine of the DC comics. The sequence of shots evoked The little Mermaid, the Disney cartoon released in 1989, so that the video was quickly parodied, for example by putting it together with the air of “Going there” :

Entertainment Weekly took advantage of the release of the blockbuster, in June 2017, to ask its creators if it was a coincidence or if it was just a wink, and the screenwriter Allan heinberg replied that it was actually a real inspiration for this modern take on Wonder Woman. “I find their career very similar. They grew up in a very protected universe and they dream of discovering the world, they are curious and want at all costs to get out of what they know to experience life. They want to go to the people. people.”

Wonder Woman is a success

With the director Patty jenkins and producers Geoff johns and Zack Snyder, they also mentioned Daryl hannah in Splash, released in 1984, (they really like mermaids!), and the first Superman, of Richard Donner (1978). “In Splash, the heroine makes lots of comments about our world, Johns analysis. Some are funny and light, but others are poignant. And she always makes very accurate observations. We were looking for exactly that. ” Jenkins quotes instead Christopher reeves in Clark Kent / Superman: “I saw this film as a child and it changed my life. I was 7 years old, I was stunned. It was the most beautiful movie. I cried! A lot of people lived that with Star Wars, but for me it was Superman. ” “It’s true that it’s powerful, full of emotions, concludes Johns. We were looking for such a right tone, but with the qualities unique to Wonder Woman: love, peace and compassion. “
