Sharkboy and Lavagirl are back and they’ve brought The Mandalorian with them! Well, sorta.
On Christmas day, We Can Be Heroes will make its debut on Netflix with a new story set in the world of 2005’s The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D. While the original film wasn’t a massive hit in theaters, it’s found a big audience thanks to Netflix and We Can Be Heroes posits a world where alien invaders have kidnapped Earth’s superheroes and it’s up to their kids to save the day. Of course, the kids will have to learn some lessons about teamwork to pull it off.
We Can Be Heroes stars YaYa Gosselin, Pedro Pascal, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christian Slater, Boyd Holbrook, Christopher McDonald, and Adriana Barraza.
I fully expect that my own kids will be watching this multiple times over holiday break, which won’t really be much of a break at all since “school” is just a couple of desks in the family room since this is 2020.
