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 opening sequence of the pilot was originally slightly different than that later used on the series. For many years the pilot movie and the series were under separate syndication contracts, and the pilot movie retained its original opening sequence whenever it was rebroadcast. When these contracts expired and the pilot was made part of the series its original opening sequence was replaced with the one used by the series. When the series was released on home video and later on DVD, neither of them contained the original opening sequence. In the original pilot, the black and white sequence ends with a bomb blowing up and an explosion sound effect. In the current pilot this black and white bomb footage is replaced with the animated exploding star used in the series opening sequence. The animated opening and theme song were also slightly different. In the original pilot when the words "Wonder Woman" appeared at the beginning of the sequence, the words "The New Original" appeared just above it. There are also some minor differences in the comic-book style animation sequence that follows. The title theme was also replaced with a re-recorded/mixed version as the producers felt the vocals on the original recording used in the pilot were too muffled and difficult to understand. See more
Steve's interception of Drangel was a secret mission, so why was there a newspaper article about him missing and, later, about his recovery in the hospital? See more
