Warner Bros. Animation has released a synopsis and clip for the animated Wonder Woman: Bloodlines.
The synopsis for the animated feature film indicates that it is a prequel to the events of 2014’s Justice League: War. It reads as follows:
“When Amazon princess Diana of Themyscira chooses to save fighter pilot Steve Trevor, it’s a choice that will change her world and ours. Fulfilling the role of both ambassador as well as protector, Diana earns the name Wonder Woman from the gracious people of Earth. But her heart is as strong as her will as she is determined to help a troubled and embittered young girl whom has fallen in with a deadly organization known only as Villainy, Inc! Get ready for an exciting adventure packed with brutal battles, myth and wonder!”
With that synopsis in mind, it is possible that the troubled and embittered young girl will be Diana’s apprentice, Donna Troy/Wonder Girl. It has previously been confirmed that she does exist in the current continuity of the DC Animated Movie Universe following 2017’s Teen Titans: Judas Contract. She has not been seen in subsequent installments though.
The clip that came with this synopsis furthers adds to the fact that it is a prequel. It showcases fighter pilot and Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor engaging in a dogfight with parademons and being rescued by Diana.
Rosario Dawson has previously been confirmed to be reprising her role as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Other cast members include Jeffrey Donovan as Steve Trevor, Marie Avgeropoulos as Silver Swan, Kimberly Brooks as The Cheetah and Giganta, Michael Dorn as Ferdinand, Ray Chase as the Lead Bandit, Mozhan Marno as Dr. Cyber, Adrienne Moore as Etta Candy, Cree Summer as Queen Hippolyta, Courtenay Taylor as Dr. Poison, Nia Vardalos as Julia Kapatelis, and Constance Zimmer as Veronica Cale.
The release date for Wonder Woman: Bloodlines does not have a release date, but it is scheduled to premiere sometime by the end of the year. It is the second standalone animated Wonder Woman film since 2009’s Wonder Woman.
