The plot is about the amazon princess Diana, on the secluded Island Themyscira, first meeting Steve Trevor, a pilot who crash lands on the island of no men. After fighting in a tournament against fellow competing amazons for the right to escort Trevor back to 'man's world' Diana dons the Wonder Woman outfit for her first time and heads on her first outing. As she tries to understand the world of man Diana must deal with the threat of God Of War Ares, who has escaped from a centuries long imprisonment and is looking to start trouble.
Voice casting includes Keri Russell (Famous for Felicity, and more recently Waitress, August Rush and Bedtime Stories) as the young Wonder Woman. Nathan Fillion (co-starred with Russell in Waitress) as Steve Trevor. Alfred Molina (Doc Oc in Spider-man 2) as God Of War Ares, Virigina Madsen (Co-star of Jim Carrey in Number 23) as Diana's mother Queen Hippolyta and Rosario Dawson (Seven Pounds with Will Smith) as Dianna's rival amazon Artemis.
There are three versions released. The Blu-Ray, the Two-Disc Special Edition DVD (with Digital Copy) and the Single Edition DVD.Read more ›
As mentioned, Timm and co. have worked with the character before, on "Justice League Unlimited", an exercise which was frankly a disastrous adaptation of the character. Stripped of her personality and most of the important parts of her origin, with her villains and supporting cast either not there at all or bland ciphers, very little of what made the character great came through there. I was apprehensive approaching this DVD, because, while a huge fan of Timm's animation, his track record with Wonder Woman is not good. It was also hardly encouraging for writer Michael Jelenic to admit to not having known anything about the character before he was assigned to the film. I should say, some spoilers are to be found.
The basic plot, as has been outlined in the other reviews here, is in common with Diana's previous comics origin stories: Ares, God of War (Mars, in Marston's original version) is loose and out to destroy the world, and it is up to the champion of his rivals in the Greek Pantheon to stop him.Read more ›
The plot is an origin story about the amazon princess Diana and how a crash landed pilot named Steve Trevor and a run in with God Of War Ares finds her coming of age while proving herself to her mother and fellow amazons and becoming the Wonder Woman we all know and love. The story is well enough written, working hard to serve the spectacularly animated battle scenes. My only issue is that it doesn't serve the character's as much as it could and certain key moments end up getting brushed over as a result. Despite these issues and some weak plot points it is still entertaining and action packed from beginning to very end, which is what most will be looking for.
Voice's of the character's are provided by Keri Russell as the young Wonder Woman/Diana, Nathan Fillion as crash landed pilot Steve Trevor, Alfred Molina as the God of War Ares, Virigina Madsen as Diana's mother Queen Hippolyta and Rosario Dawson voicing Diana's fellow amazon Artemis. I feel all the actor's lend their voices to the characters quite well setting their own personalities aside to really play the part of the character's despite some cliche lines to be found.
This feature is rated PG-13 and it works hard to earn that rating. There are many nods to adult situations (most in passing or to provide humor), and there are many action filled battle scenes that show multiple killings though only specific shots of blood.Read more ›

|Digital edition included?||
Hi, i got the digital copy with my blu ray ages ago which also had the slipcase cover.
They don't seem to have the slipcase cover anymore so i'm not sure if the digital copy would still be included.

Is there any recent news on the live action Wonder Woman? I'd love to see Lena Headey take the part.
