Israeli superstar Gal Gadot got a bissel farklempt – a little choked up, as they say in Yiddish – reporting on the wrap-up of filming “Wonder Woman 1984,” the sequel to her 2017 blockbuster hit “Wonder Woman.”

“We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I’m so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie,” she posted on Instagram December 23.

“Couldn’t ask for better partners on this. I’m so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves. I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you!”

The first “Wonder Woman” raked in $821.8 million in box office sales, and made Gadot the highest-grossing actress of 2017.

The sequel is due to open in movie theaters on June 5, 2020.

“Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience,” Gadot wrote. “This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud… Thank you, universe, for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day.”
