Enter the world of Wonder Woman with this breathtaking concept art

Wonder Woman

At long last, audiences will finally be introduced to the island of Themyscira, the home of Amazonian princess Diana, in Patty Jenkins' upcoming WONDER WOMAN. As with most big-budget blockbusters, an incredible amount of concept art was developed in order to properly realize this new world. Entertainment Weekly has released a few pieces of concept art from the film with a breakdown of the images courtesy of production designer Aline Bonetto. I'll include a few of her insights below, and don't forget, click to embiggen!

"What could have happened if women lived alone in a place?" Bonetto muses. "How would they build their architecture?" Reflecting the openness of Amazonian society, the throne room has no walls or doors and appears to be built into a rock cavity, implying harmony with nature. That harmony extends to the spiral throne. “The spiral, it’s a really primitive element,” Bonetto explains. “It’s a shape that you can find a lot in nature, in perfect things: in ferns when they grow and in the Nautilus shell.” But the throne room also teases at the society’s artisan evolution. “On the stairs, I have introduced a really dedicated golden pattern that looks a little bit art deco,” Bonetto says.

“She has left her island and suddenly arrived in London. She finds, of course, it’s a big contrast,” Bonetto says. “She knew only natural landscapes... You can imagine the fog, the really gray sky, the rain. Everything is a big shock!” With boats, trains, automobiles and distant observation balloons lingering on the horizon, Diana’s witnessing the moment when the scientific advances of the Industrial Revolution became violently manifest. “It was the beginning of industrialization,” Bonetto says.

“I like working with a palette of color that is monochromatic,” Bonetto explains. “This set is quite dark, but also, as you can see in this picture, the costume of the scientist is quite green. It was important she would be the strongest point of color in this set. She’s working day and night, trying to find a terrible thing. You have to give the feeling that every tool, every bottle, is something on the way to create something more dangerous. You can only go further and further. They had to push me out of this set.”

The official synopsis for WONDER WOMAN:

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

WONDER WOMAN will hit theaters on June 2nd.
