WE CAN BE HEROES: Check Out The Full Trailer For Robert Rodriguez's New Superhero Adventure

Netflix has released a full trailer for Robert Rodriguez's "spiritual sequel" to The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, We Can Be Heroes. See The Heroics and their kids in action after the jump...

We recently got a first official look at Robert Rodriguez's new superhero flick, We Can Be Heroes, via a brief teaser, and the full trailer for the Netflix family adventure is now online.

The footage begins with a superhero team known as The Heroics being taken down and captured by alien invaders, and the heroes' children - the daughter of Sharkboy and Lavagirl among them - banding together to rescue their parents. This time we get a proper look at the heroes in action, as well as a better idea of their power-sets.

Pedro Pascal stars as the leader of a team of supes, who's daughter Missy (YaYa Gosselin) rounds up 10 fellow super-powered youngsters to rescue the group when they're abducted. Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), and Sung Kang (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) will play some of the other heroes, while Priyanka Chopra - previously believed to be the villain of the piece - is on board as the group's "Agent Coulson Type."

This looks to be very much in the Spy Kids/Sharkboy & Lavagirl wheelhouse, and is clearly aimed squarely at the little 'uns. Still, there should be some silly fun to be had for the whole family.

We Can Be Heroes is set to premiere on Netflix on New Years Day. Check out some of the previously released images below!

Here we see Logan actor Boyd Holbrook as an unnamed Heroic member being captured by what appears to be a giant robot.

“A lot of families have spent a lot of time together,” Rodriguez explains to EW when asked why he chose We Can Be Heroes as his next project. “I’ve been getting calls from all kinds of studios: ‘Reboot Spy Kids.’ ‘Reboot Sharkboy.’ Of course they want to. They’re all sitting at home with their kids.”

Pedro Pascal as Marcus Moreno, who is on the verge of retirement when his team is kidnapped.

“I’ve wanted to work with Pedro since forever,” Rodriguez says. “[Marcus] can be a badass if he needs to. He takes the glasses off, and he looks legit.”

Prianka Chopra as the mysterious Ms. Gradenko. Is she playing the villain? Based on this pic, it's probably a safe enough assumption.

Missy and her crew. We don't know much about any of the other young heroes, but one of 'em is named Facemaker, and has the ability to alter his appearance. “[For] a kid, that’s an amazing power,” says Rodriguez. “What if you could become anyone else?”

We Can Be Heroes doesn't have a premiere date yet.
