Amazon island of Themyscira, where a young Diana desperately wants her aunt, warrior General Antiope (Robin Wright), to train her — but her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), forbids it. Eventually the queen relents, and Diana (Gal Gadot) becomes the strongest warrior on the island, embracing the Amazons’ responsibility of protecting humanity against Ares, the god of war. One day during World War I, an airplane crashes in the sea, and Diana saves the pilot — the first man she’s ever met. He’s Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), a British spy pursued by the Germans, who soon descend upon Paradise Island and engage the Amazons in combat. After defeating the Germans but suffering losses, the Amazons want to kill or imprison Steve, but after he explains that millions are dying in The Great War, Diana decides it’s her duty to help him. With her bracelets of victory, lasso of truth, battle shield, and magical sword, Diana goes to London with Steve in hopes of ending the war. There they team up with three of his friends on a mission to save the world from the plans of the evil German General Ludendorff (Danny Huston).
