Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
I’ve been a little wary of comparing our film with others, but I think I found a film that has some similarities, had only a slightly larger budget, and was produced at about the same time: Wonder Woman (2009).
Both films are animated, of the same genre (sci-fi/fantasy), with a similar audience. Since this story of Wonder Woman started out in an all woman community, it could have had some empowering lesbian themes and inspired a generation of young heroines, but alas it wasn’t to be.
Of course, Wonder Woman has a built in audience, a great franchise opportunity, and tons of established backstory. We have to do all that from scratch….without super powers.
