Kindergartners Reactions to Wonder Woman Will Put a Smile on Your Face
Wonder Woman has been breaking records since its release two weeks ago. Having made over $100 million at the box office opening weekend alone, it’s clear that Diana is the hero we all needed. One thing that Wonder Woman has done right is give girls and women the representation they need, proving that what we see as kids makes a difference in our lives.
In a tweet, Director Patty Jenkins shared a list given to one of the film’s producers by a staffer in a kindergarten classroom. The list consisted of all the mega adorable things that happened in the week after the movie’s initial release.
My producer just sent me this… ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! This makes every hard day worth it. Thank you to whomever wrote it!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/3DzIaMueIh

Included in the super sweet moments was one little girl asking the teacher if she could skip wearing her uniform and switch to the superhero armor, a little girl screaming at a classmate for throwing a candy wrapper, shouting, “DON’T POLLUTE YOU IDIOT, THAT IS WHY THERE ARE NO MEN IN TEMYSCIRA(sic),” and a group of seven kids deciding to work together instead of fighting over who gets to be Diana so that they could all be Amazons and “not fight but work together to defeat evil.”
While most kids love superhero movies no matter what, the representation that Wonder Woman provides will help the next generation of kids grow up truly believing in equality. And that’s making star Gal Gadot want to work even harder on the already-approved sequel.
Wow the last paragraph really gave me the chills.
So true. So powerful. Gives me a huge drive to dive in and work on the next one..🙏🏻 https://t.co/mI4hYfbNkV
