‘Sharkboy and Lavagirl‘ Sequel ‘We Can Be Heroes’ To Premiere on New Years Day. What better way to ring in the New Year than with a new movie! Fans of 2005’s ‘The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl‘ were excited to hear that a sequel was in the works for Netflix and it turns out the film will premiere earlier than expected. The highly anticipated sequel is currently set to premiere on New Years Day (Jan 1, 2021) and will be available to stream via Netflix.
The original ‘Sharkboy and Lavagirl‘ film followed Max (Cayden Boyd) a bullied child who escapes into a fantasy world of his own creation, conjuring up the action-packed lives of Lavagirl (Taylor Dooley) and Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner). But one day, Lavagirl and Sharkboy suddenly come to life — and their world, Planet Drool, needs a hero named Max. As Max escapes to Planet Drool, he battles aliens and tries to save his new friends’ planet from destruction. He also battles his bullies, who have become villains like the Ice Princess (Sasha Pieterse).
The sequel will follow the “events after an alien invasion and the kidnapping of Earth’s superheroes. Now their children must team up and learn to work together if they want to save their parents and the world.”
We Can Be Heroes stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas as Ms. Granada, Christian Slater as Tech-No, Pedro Pascal as Marcus Moreno, Sung Kang, Boyd Holbrook, Taylor Dooley as Lavagirl, YaYa Gosselin as Missy Moreno, Akira Akbar. Haley Reinhart as Ms. Vox, Andy Walken, Andrew Diaz, Brently Heilbron as Crushing Low, Hala Finley, Isaiah Russell-Bailey, Lotus Blossom, Lyon Daniels, Nathan Blair, Vivien Lyra Blair as Guppy (Sharkboy and Lavagirl’s daughter), Adriana Barraza, Brittany Perry-Russell as Red Lightening Fury, Christopher McDonald, and Dylan Henry Lau.
Writers Note: Taylor Lautner will not make an appearance as Sharkboy in the sequel due to film schedule conflicts, so J.J. Dashnaw will appear as a body double (non-speaking role) potentially making way for Lautner to join the cast in a third film depending on the sequels performance.
