After being delayed back in June, the sequel to DC's 2017 film Wonder Woman is coming to HBO Max just in time for Christmas and we have all the details on how you can watch Wonder Woman 1984 at home during the holidays.
While DC's first Wonder Woman film was set in World War 1, Wonder Woman 1984 takes place decades later in 1984. Gal Gadot reprises her role as Pricness Diana Prince in the new film and she now works as a senior anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC specializing in the culture of ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Diana continues to fight crime as Wonder Woman albeit in secret while trying to maintain some anonymity.

However, Diana gets a new coworker named Barbara Ann Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig) who idolizes her and tries to befriend her. When a businessman named Maxwell Lord visits the Smithsonian searching for a mysterious Dreamstone capable of granting wishes upon contact, both Diana and Barbara unknowingly use the stone to fulfill their deepest desires. While Diana's wish leads to her deceased lover Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) coming back to life, Barbara wishes to become strong and beautiful like Diana which leads her to eventually become the villain Cheetah.
The first Wonder Woman film broke box office records when it was released back in 2017 but Warner Bros has decided to simultaneously release the sequel to HBO Max and to theaters on Christmas.

How to watch Wonder Woman 1984 in the U.S. exclusively on HBO Max
However, if you already pay for HBO, you may be able to get access to the streaming service for free if you currently pay for the channel through AT&T, Charter, Verizon, Cox Communications, Comcast, YouTube TV, Apple or Hulu. It is a bit confusing but essentially if HBO has struck a deal with either the cable company or digital provider that is billing you for HBO, you will be able to get access to HBO Max for free.
Signing up for HBO Max will cost you $14.99 per month but for the price, you'll get access to HBO's original programming including shows like Watchmen, Succession, Barry, Insecure, Westworld and more. The service will also let you watch a number of popular shows that aren't on HBO such as Friends and even Rick and Morty.
HBO Max currently offers a 7-day free trial if you want to test out the service for yourself to watch Wonder Woman 1984.
