It looks like DC fans can expect Wonder Woman 1984to be a worthy sequel to its 2017 original. Early reactions came in over the weekend, and people are praising it for its heartwarming themes and epic performances.

The movie won’t be released until the end of the month, but some lucky folks who were able to get a first look this weekend shared their initial reactions online. And boy were they ever glowing.

Huge news: Wonder Woman 1984 is fantastic! The story is excellent & has a great, timely message; it packs in a ton of surprises; and amazing work is done with both Cheetah & Max Lord (Wiig & Pascal are both stellar). Get hyped, because it's the real deal. #WonderWoman1984 #WW1984 pic.twitter.com/9UQLyxn3gx

I've seen #WonderWoman1984!@PattyJenks literally made an 80s movie in every way, making it so unique for today. It feels both bigger than the first WW while simultaneously more contained.

Lots of Diana Prince and some epic Wonder Woman moments as @GalGadot literally soars! pic.twitter.com/QluelKwYly

I prefer Wonder Woman to Wonder Woman 1984. But I also much prefer seeing filmmakers take new, big swings with sequels and that’s definitely what Patty Jenkins and co. do here. Not everything adds up, but the value of selflessness, love and compassion do shine through. #WW84 pic.twitter.com/xG4JS0NVbv

Yesterday I saw Wonder Woman 1984 at home & it was everything I needed & more. The movie is hugely ambitious, incredibly exciting, and full of much needed hope. It's also very long, to a fault at times, but mostly it reminded me how wonderful a big blockbuster can make you feel. pic.twitter.com/6rYbHEzI7E

Patty Jenkins’ sequel takes place in, you guessed it, 1984, as our Amazon Princess navigates conflict during the Cold War. The film is expected to be more of a "Bond"-style franchise addition, as opposed to a traditional sequel. Diana’s original love interest Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, returns, and joins a cast that once again includes Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright. New villains Cheetah and Max Lord are played by Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal respectively.

It's the final countdown! Happy to share the newest trailer for #WW84! This Christmas you will finally get to see our movie & the important message it brings.
These days,more than ever,we all share in the wonder ✨ #WonderWoman1984 will play in theaters & exclusively on @hbomax pic.twitter.com/sdyYDfBydd
