Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser released

The first Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser has been released ahead of the full trailer set for the end of this week.

In a surprise release on Sunday night, Warner Bros. Pictures released the first footage from the long-awaited Aquaman sequel. This is very much a Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser as the full trailer will release on Thursday.

Along with the teaser came a new synopsis for the film, as well as four new hi-res images from the upcoming film.

Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 20.
