It’s a good month to be “Wonder Woman” apparently. 

Lynda Carter, the star of the 1970s TV show, will be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday. The announcement comes as the Amazonian princess, portrayed on the silver screen by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, continues to perform well at the box office.

Ms. Carter is one of 24 members of the 2018 class of inductees, all but one of whom are human. The sole fictional character to be added is Disney’s Minnie Mouse, who’s waited quite a while to join her boyfriend. Mickey Mouse was inducted in November 1978, according to the Walk of Fame’s website.

“Hamilton” playwright and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence and rapper Snoop Dogg are among some of the other notable inductees in the Class of 2018.

Comedian Bernie Mac and wildlife expert Steve Irwin are the only two posthumous honorees this time around.

Ana Martinez, the VP of media relations for the Walk of Fame, tweeted Thursday night that roughly 300 nominations were considered this year. 

Overseen by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce since its dedication in November 1960, the Walk of Fame usually adds around 24 new inductees each year, aiming to do two ceremonies per month, according to its official website.
