After a dogfight with a Nazi plane, U.S. Air Force Steve Trevor crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Paradise Island is inhabited only by women, and their existence has been kept a secret for thousands of years. Learning of the Nazi threat to humanity, the Amazon princess, Diana, is chosen to accompany Trevor back to the United States to battle the Third Reich. Garbed in a skimpy red, white & blue costume and armed with a magic lasso that forces anyone within its grasp to tell the truth, Diana uses her powers as Wonder Woman to battle the forces of evil.

Did You Know?


The pilot episode was originally presented as a one-shot 90 minute movie. It was entitled "The New Original Wonder Woman" because the producers wanted to make a clear distinction between this very true-to-the-comics adaptation and a previous "Wonder Woman" pilot movie that aired the year before starring Cathy Lee Crosby, which was very loosely based upon the comic book character.

In the Amazon hospital where Steve is being cared for, one of the Amazons glances at the camera although there's nothing to look at in the scene in that direction. See more »


Diana: You wanted to see me, Mother?
Queen Hippolyte: You may leave his care to others.
Diana: Well thank you, but I would prefer to stay on until I'm certain that he's well.
Queen Hippolyte: That was a command, not a request.
Diana: Am I allowed to ask why?
Queen Hippolyte: You are very intelligent.
Diana: I am your daughter.
Queen Hippolyte: There are so many things you don't know. Do you have any idea of your age?
Diana: By what standard?
Queen Hippolyte: By the earth's clock.

Excellent Adaptation
9 April 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This was the pilot to the TV series. I remember stumbling across it when it originally aired and fell in love with Lynda Carter. I was amazed at how much she looked like the comic book heroine. I was also pleased that the producers stayed true to the comic book legend, given that society at that time was still uncomfortable with strong independent-minded women. Unfortunately, the subsequent TV series, especially the "updated" 70s version, discarded the strong Amazonian theme. I'm looking forward to the movie and hope Lynda Carter can participate somehow, even as a cameo.
