Netflix has released the full We Can Be Heroes trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s newest action-adventure film, featuring the children of superheroes as they must band together to save their parents from Alien invaders who have kidnapped them. Starring Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), the film will be available for streaming on Friday, December 25.
In We Can Be Heroes, 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.
The movie stars YaYa Gosselin (The Purge), Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian), Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico), Golden Globe winner Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Christopher McDonald (Ballers), and Oscar nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel), along with 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!), Taylor Dooley (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D), Sung Kang (F9), Haley Reinhart (F Is for Family), Brittany Perry-Russell (Family Reunion), and Brently Heilbron (Red 11).
We Can Be Heroes is written, directed, and produced by Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Machete, Sin City, Alita: Battle Angel).
