We can be Heroes takes place after Sharkboy and Lavagirl, though it is not about them. In this thrilling movie, a group of kids who were born from superhero parents can only watch as their parents get abducted by alien creatures. But when Missy sees that she and the other kids are about to be captured too, she strikes, and together, she and the other super kids escape an alien's wrath. While Missy is not a super kid herself, her leadership plays a major role when the kids have to save and rescue their parents form the hands of an alien species. Each kid will have to do their part, and work together, if they want their parents back. Can Missy lead her friends to victory, or will the friends realize that they work better alone? Arguments heat up, disaster strikes, but in the end, Missy and her friends notice that they CAN be heroes. Together. I LOVED this movie, and I know you guys will too!
