As the positive reviews keep trickling out from advance screenings of Wonder Woman, our anticipation for seeing the live-action big-screen debut of Themyscira's greatest warrior is at Defcon 9.
To tide us over until June 2 finally arrives, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just re-released one of its most acclaimed DC Animated movies. Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition repackages the action-packed 2009 feature-length movie along with a slew of special features tailored specifically for the character's 75th anniversary.
The special features include a featurette on the character's history and evolution, along with commentary from the creative team behind the movie. There's also a sneak peek at the next DC Animated release: Batman and Harley Quinn.
One thing you won't see in this commemorative edition, however, is an R-rated cut of the Wonder Woman animated film. Despite rumors to the contrary, there are apparently no plans to re-insert the scenes that were cut to make it PG-13.
Frankly, that's OK. This is easily one of the Top 3 or 4 movies in the DC Animated Universe -- not just because director Lauren Montgomery expertly translated Gail Simone and Michael Jelenic's story but also because of the incredible voice cast. Keri Russell as Diana/Wonder Woman, Nathan Fillion as Steve Trevor, Rosario Dawson, Alfred Molina, Virginia Madsen ... it's absolutely loaded with talent. It's the best on-screen representation of DC's legendary hero to date (we haven't seen the new movie yet, so we reserve the right to change our mind afterward!)
Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Enjoy the exclusive supercut below.
