WATCH: We Can Be Heroes teaser trailer

We Can Be HeroesNetflix  has released the first teaser for its upcoming superhero film, We Can Be Heroes.

The new film is set in the world of the Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl but follows the adventures of the next generation of young supers. This new family film boasts of an all-star cast and a lot of fun, despite the slightly iffy and cheesy-looking CGI that the teaser trailer puts on display. This hopeful story will start streaming on New Year’s Day, ushering in the new year with a joyous bang. After such a strange year, such a feel-good film is a welcome addition to one’s binge-watch list, a lighthearted romp that should put everyone in a pleasant mood.

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

“When alien invaders kidnap Earth’s superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno (Yaya Gosselin) will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno (Pedro Pascal). Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada (Priyanka Chopra Jonas). If they’re going to save their parents, they’ll have to work together by using their individual powers — from elasticity to time control to predicting the future — and form an out-of-this-world team. Full of action and heart, We Can Be Heroes is directed by Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl) and also stars Boyd Holbrook, Christian Slater, Chris McDonald, and Adriana Barraza.”

Also part of the cast are Vivien Blair, Isaiah Russell-Bailey, Akira Akbar, Lyon Daniels, Nathan Blair, Lotus Blossom, Hala Finley, Andy Walken, Dylan Henry Lau, Andrew Diaz, Taylor Dooley, Sung Kang, Haley Reinhart, J. Quinton Johnson, Brittany Perry-Russell, Brently Heilbron, and JJ Dashnaw.

We Can Be Heroes will premiere on January 1, 2021 on Netflix.
