Wonder Woman Animated Movie Date Announced
The Wonder Woman animated movie will be released on March 3, 2009, from Warner Home Video.
The single-disc, 75-minute movie will be available on DVD for $19.98, rated PG-13. The two-disc Special Edition ($29.98) and the Blu-ray version ($34.99) will have over three hours of additional special features, including (from the press release):
Wonder Woman: A Subversive Dream — We examine why Wonder Woman is important in the grand scheme of the DC Super Heroes and how her raw strength and power helped define a new generation of empowered women, who realized that their gifts of intellect and strength were just as powerful as their male counterparts.
Wonder Woman: The Daughters of Myth — The riveting documentary historically defines the meaning of the Amazons and how this links in with the evolution of the Wonder Woman character from comics to screen.
Audio Commentary by Gregory Noveck (Senior Vice President, Creative Affairs, DC Comics), Bruce Timm (Producer), Lauren Montgomery (Director), and Michael Jelenic (Screenplay).
Bruce Timm’s Top Picks — Popular episodes from the Warner Bros. archive of Justice League/Justice League Unlimited animation featuring Wonder Woman; all personally selected by Bruce Timm, producer of this Wonder Woman feature film. All formats include “To Another Shore” and “Hawk and Dove.” Exclusive additions for the Blu-ray and 2-Disc formats: “Paradise Lost, Parts 1 & 2.”
Warner Bros. is including a Digital Copy of Wonder Woman on the DVD which will provide fans a legitimate means to enjoy their favorite action hero anywhere they want on their portable video device. Formats supported include iTunes and Windows Media Player. Restrictions apply. Consult product packaging for details.
Sneak Peak at the next DCU Animated Original Movie.
Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess — This featurette includes both a thumbnail history of the character of Wonder Woman featuring interviews with DC Comics creators and artists (Paul Levitz, Dan DiDio) and behind-the-scenes footage of the upcoming made-for-DVD release punctuated with interviews from the production staff and voice talent behind the film (Keri Russell, Alfred Molina, etc.)
(So Levitz and DiDio are now artists?)
You can see a trailer at the official movie site (link no longer available), although it hasn’t yet been updated to reflect the March 3 date. They’re planning “a massive media campaign, including prime time TV spots, national print, and online coverage.” The movie will also be available through pay-per-view and pay download on the same release date.
