Jenkins references her father, an Air Force pilot, in the touching video. She wanted to make a movie that took advantage of her love of flying and Star Wars and now she has her chance. The movie will debut during Christmas 2023, which means it will be shooting in 2022 most likely. Before that, Jenkins is known to have involvement in both Wonder Woman 3 and a spinoff focusing on the Amazons.
Jenkins directed both Wonder Woman and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, which will debut day and date on HBO Max this Christmas.
