A seven-and-a-half-foot tall bronze Wonder Woman statue was unveiled yesterday in a special ceremony at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood as part of a partnership between Visit Burbank, DC and Warner Bros. Discovery.
Today’s unveiling ceremony was attended by local government and business luminaries including Burbank Mayor Konstantine Anthony, Pam Lifford, President, Global Brands, Franchises and Experiences, Jim Lee, DC Chief Creative Office and Publisher, and “Wonder Woman” Director Patty Jenkins.
“Wonder Woman is one of the world’s most beloved and iconic DC Super Heroes of all time — A Champion of Truth, Justice and Warrior for Peace,” said Pam Lifford, President, Global Brands, Franchises and Experiences. “As we kick off the Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary — Sharing Every Story, Wonder Woman is part of this company’s story and legacy. Not only is she a prominent fixture of the Studio Tour, she will now be a permanent fixture as our story continues for the next 100 years.”
“Since she made her debut in the pages of “All-Star Comics no.8,” Wonder Woman has been published all over the world and has inspired millions of fans around the world who saw themselves in the action-packed pages of the comic books, as Lynda Carter in the TV show or Gal Gadot in the movies,” remarked Jim Lee, DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher. “Her real, secret super power is that she continues to bring fans together around something they love.”
The over 600-pound Wonder Woman statue was based on a design by acclaimed artist Jenny Frison and was crafted by Burbank’s American Fine Arts Foundry and Fabrication. To celebrate the city’s newest statue, Visit Burbank is also reprinting the famed story of Amelia Earhart landing on Themyscira from Wonder Woman: Agent of Peace, written by Amanda Diebert with art by Aaron Lopresti. The comic will feature a brand new cover and will be available via Visit Burbank.
The newly installed Wonder Woman statue can be viewed 24 hours a day in front of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood at 3400 Warner Blvd. Burbank, CA. For more information on Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood, visit www.wbstudiotour.com.
