While Wonder Woman has been smashing the box office all over the world, director Patty Jenkins shared a post about how kindergarten students reacted to the superhero film which was beyond heartwarming. Jenkins shared a note on Twitter that read, “My producer just sent me this… ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! This makes every hard day worth it. Thank you to whomever wrote it!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”.
The note tells us how while one girl said she wanted to grow up and speak hundreds of languages like Diana, the other one wanted to be addressed as Wonder Woman only. A little boy asked his parents for a Wonder Woman lunchbox while another girl wanted a Wonder Woman themed birthday party at any cost.
The film’s success at the box office will definitely result in more movies having a woman at the center of the plot, and also directed by a woman. And this sweet incident is privy to the fact that the movie is already making an impact as far as breaking stereotypes is concerned. The immediate effect on the mindset of little kids across the world who are accustomed to seeing men dominate the superhero world is also evident in the note.
