Netflix has released a full trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Netflix superhero movie We Can Be Heroes. This movie is set in the same world as The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, and the story centers on alien invaders who kidnap Earth’s superheroes, whose children must team up and learn to work together if they want to save their parents and the world.
The movie looks like it will be a silly fun time. If you’ve seen The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl then you know what kind of movie this is going to be. It stars YaYa Gosselin (The Purge), Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian), Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico), Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), and Christopher McDonald (Ballers).
Here’s the synopsis:
When alien invaders kidnap Earth’s superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno (Gosselin) will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno (Pascal). Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada (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 was written, directed, and produced by Rodriguez, and it also stars Adriana Barraza (Babel), Vivien Blair (Bird Box), Isaiah Russell-Bailey (Family Reunion), Akira Akbar (Captain Marvel), Lyon Daniels (Patriot), Nathan Blair (Best. Work. Weekend. Ever.), Lotus Blossom (Magic Max), Hala Finley (Man with a Plan), Andy Walken (The Kids Are Alright), Dylan Henry Lau (Here and Now), Andrew Diaz (The Kid’s New Years Party!), Sung Kang (F9), Haley Reinhart (F Is for Family), Brittany Perry-Russell (Family Reunion), and Brently Heilbron (Red 11).
Netflix will release We Can Be Heroes on Christmas Day, 2021.
