One of the things that really intrigued us the most about the whole Wonder Woman mythology is the actual mythology of it. Her character has distinct roots in classic Greek mythology.
A character like Wonder Woman is so iconic and yet, over the course of her history, there have been lots of subtle changes. We couldn’t stray too far from the comic book look, but you do have a certain amount of leeway in terms of how you interpret those elements for animation.
Wonder Woman presents a challenge because she needs to be drop-dead gorgeous, but also very, very strong both physically and emotionally. She’s a powerful presence and we had to find that balance between athleticism and glamour.
Beyond the mythology, Wonder Woman gets to play with several dichotomies. It’s Amazon culture versus man’s world; ancient mythological times versus the contemporary world; and, of course, all the male and female issues.
