A sequel was inevitable, and as the title promises, the action moves to the gung-ho eighties. The movie is set in 1984, the year of the Los Angeles Olympics, and there’s some oh-so ’80s big hair and shopping mall action.
Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman, the Amazon daughter of Zeus. Her strength and powers surpass anything people can throw at her, but their world also confuses and bewilder her.

Robin Wright again plays General Antiope, Wonder Woman’s aunt, in the sequel, despite the fact that she sacrificed herself for Wonder Woman in the first movie. Connie Nielsen is also back as Wonder Woman’s mother, Hippolyta, the queen of Themyscira, the island home of the Amazons.
