While everyone is fumbling for ways to make good use of our respective quarantines, leave it to Wonder Woman to use that time to inspire.

On day six of the quarantine, Gal Gadot, who plays the Amazonian warrior princess in the DC movie universe, recently posted a video of her and other celebrity friends singing to John Lennon’s timeless song “Imagine.”

“I got to say that these past few days got me feeling a bit philosophical,” shares the 34-year-old. “I ran into this video of this Italian guy playing trumpet in his balcony to all the people who were locked inside their homes. And he was playing ‘Imagine’ and there was something so powerful and pure about this video. And it goes like this…”

Gadot was inspired by this video of an Italian man playing "Imagine" with his trumpet.

 

And Gadot starts off with the song’s opening line: “Imagine there’s no heaven…” then the video quickly cuts to a succession of stars. They include her Wonder Woman 1984 co-stars Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal, and fellow screen superheroes Henry Cavill, Mark Ruffalo, James Marsden, and soon-to-be Lady Thor Natalie Portman. Saturday Night Live alumni Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Silverman, and Maya Rudolph are also included alongside musical artists Sia and Norah Jones and celebrities like Amy Adams and Zoe Kravitz. And, of course, having another Wonder Woman like 70s icon Lynda Carter in the mix could only strengthen the video’s message.

 

 

“You know this virus had affected the entire world. Everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, we’re all in this together,” the Israeli actress says in the video, emphasizing that final thought that hopefully will get us all through—while we’re only left with imagining better days ahead, there’s no reason we can’t do that together.
