Count your blessings this holiday season, because Gal Gadot just gave us a behind-the-scenes account of filming Wonder Woman 1984, and it sounds pretty freakin’ great.
The sequel isn’t due out until June 5, 2020, but it seems production has officially wrapped. Gadot shared a series of cute, candid photos of her and director Patty Jenkins on the set via Instagram, including one shot that seems to be in the same ’80s-tastic mall from that glorious Chris Pine photo the studio released back in June. After thanking the film’s fearless leader and the tireless dedication of crew members, Gadot describes the follow-up to her critically-acclaimed superhero flick as “so demanding and challenging.” Of course, she also notes that they “all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud.”
See Gadot’s full caption below, but be warned: it might make you a little emotional.
“We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special.. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I’m so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie.
Couldn’t ask for better partners on this . . . I’m so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves . . . I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you!
Honestly . . . Words cannot describe this experience . . . This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud . . . Thank you, universe, for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day.
I’m so happy and excited, can’t wait to share it with you in 2020!”
