DIY ‘Wonder’ Movie Astronaut Helmet
In the movie (and book), Auggie Pullman is born with facial differences due to a craniofacial condition. He has a form of Treacher Collins syndrome, which affects the development of bones and tissues in the face.
As he enters a mainstream school for the first time in fifth grade, he wears an astronaut helmet. This hides him from the other students, who he worries will not accept him.
The helmet represents the desire for a safe space, while also showing the isolation he experiences.

As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Wonder is rated PG for thematic elements including bullying, and some mild language. The cast includes Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Mandy Patinkin, Daveed Diggs, and Izabela Vidovic. Directed by Stephen Chbosky, the movie is based on a book by R. J. Palacio.
