It stars Gadot as Diana Prince with Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui among the supporting cast. Chris Pine stars as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's key love interest.

The movie serves as Prince's origin story and tells of how she was raised on a sheltered island and trained to be an unconquerable fighter. But after Trevor, a fighter pilot, crashes on the island and tells her about a world war that is happening, she leaves her home to try to stop the war.
