Even when world events seem at their bleakest, humanity must’ve done something right for us to have Gal Gadot.
These Wonder Woman bloopers are adorable, smile-inducing, and spirit-lifting not just for their comedic value and the vicarious joy of watching movie stars in fanciful costumes shake off their mistakes—no, these are extra fun because you get the sense of just how much the cast enjoyed making the movie. Watch the easy, behind-the-scenes camaraderie between Gal and Chris Pine, or Gal and director Patty Jenkins. Really, Gal with anyone and everyone on the production’s cast and crew.
Watch Amazons stumble, lines get flubbed, observe as Gal Gadot’s giggle heals all of the broken places in our hearts. Ask yourself how you lived before you had seen the Wonder Woman bloopers. It’s hard to imagine now, isn’t it? I always adore when we get to glimpse behind the glitzy celluloid curtain at the real people working hard to craft the Thing We Love, and it’s all the better when they seem to be genuinely neat and cool and having the time of their lives.
If you can power through this reel without grinning your face off every time Gal Gadot belly-laughs, you must have superhuman levels of resistance. The #1 comment on this video could not be more on the nose:
There’s also this, worth noting:
WE MUST PROTECT HER AT ALL COST.
I think I’m overdue for a Wonder Woman rewatch, although I’m also, right now, dreaming of a version of it played as straight slapstick. These folks certainly had the chops.
