DC fans will get to see more of Diana Prince's story and adventures when Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in theaters later this year. While the movie is seen as a continuation of the hero's story, stars Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig point out why the upcoming film isn't exactly a sequel.

"We don't pick up the story where we left it last, because it was 66 years ago," Gadot told Total Film (via Games Radar). "So she's been living for over six decades by herself, in man's world, serving mankind and doing good. And this story is a story of its own."

The actor says the only thing that both movies have in common is the relationship between Diana and Steve Trevor. Other than that, Gadot notes that it's a "whole new world" and story in a different era, with a different Diana.

"It really doesn't feel like a sequel in that... everything's different," Wiig added. "The posters, the music, everything... Obviously the posters are different! I meant, like the style!"

Wiig says sequels usually show the connection it has with the first movie, with Gadot agreeing with her co-star, saying that Wonder Woman 1984 is something "totally of its own."

"It's true. And I feel, in the first movie, a big thing that we played off was the naiveté of Diana. And she's not naive anymore," Gadot continued. "She's been around. She's wiser. She's more mature. We meet a very much evolved character in this one."

Wonder Woman 1984 was initially set for release in November 2019 but was delayed to June 2020. It was pushed back further due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Warner Bros. opting for an October 2nd release.
