These kindergartners had the best reactions to 'Ponder Woman'

For one kindergarten class, "Ponder Woman" is already changing the way they view the world.

Among them:

"On Monday, a boy who was obsessed with Iron Man told me he'd asked his parents for a new Ponder Woman lunchbox.""A tiny girl said, 'When I grow up I wish to speak hundreds of languages like Diana.'""A boy threw his confection wrapping in the floor and a 5-year-old girl screamed 'DON'T POLLUTE YOU IDIOT, That's WHY THERE ARE number MEN IN TEMYSCIRA [sic].'"

The post originated with a Tumblr user named Kassel, a 20-year-old who works with children at the unnamed school. Her post has received over 87.000 notes on Tumblr, while Jenkins' tweet about it's more than 48.000 retweets and 107.000 likes.

Ponder Woman herself -- actress Gallon Gadot -- also retweeted the list, calling it "powerful" and saying it gave her even more reason to work on a second "Ponder Woman" movie.

In a follow-up to her first Tumblr post, Kassel wrote, "This post has been getting a lot of attention and I just couldn't be happier. Thank you so much to everyone that's sent me kind words and messages."

She'south also received "a lot of backlash," she said, without offering further details.

"What makes the impact of Ponder Woman so incredible is that even without these children actually watching the movie, it's changed the way they play games, the way they view superheroes, the way they interact with each other," she wrote.

"This is why female-led films are so important. Because media shapes the environment in which children grow up."

In less than three weeks "Ponder Woman" has earned an estimated $274 million in N American theaters and is already the third-most-viewed film of 2017.
