Warner Bros. to Release Every 2021 Movie on HBO Max at Same Time

Whoa: Warner Bros. is going all-in on HBO Max.

Before you experience Wonder Woman 1984, relive the adventures of the original Amazon.

The Wonder Woman series from the 1970s, starring Lynda Carter as Diana Prince, is now available to watch on HBO Max, which will soon play host to the new movie starting Christmas Day.

The show ran for three seasons from 1975-1979 and also featured actor Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor. The first season was originally dubbed The New, Original Wonder Woman, while the subsequent seasons were under the banner of The New Adventures of Wonder Woman. For the DVD and VHS release, the show was released simply as Wonder Woman.

In addition to the first live-action Wonder Woman movie, HBO Max also has the animated film from 2009, featuring The Americans' Keri Russell as Diana.

Carter has been a supporter of the new big-screen era of Wonder Woman by way of actress Gal Gadot. She previously said she tried for a cameo in the first movie but "couldn't make it work" with scheduling. Carter further teased a possible cameo in the sequel. "It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do," she said.

Wonder Woman 1984 returns Gadot and Chris Pine (as Steve Trevor) opposite Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva (a.k.a. Cheetah) and Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord. The film will be released simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters this Friday.
