Aquaman is diving back into action this month! JASON MAMOA returns as the undersea superhero in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which hits theaters December 20. In the first movie, Arthur Curry—who was born on land—learns he is heir to the undersea kingdom of Atlantis. He goes on a quest to prevent a war between Atlantis and humanity. In this next installment, he will save Atlantis once again from a mysterious foe!

Aquaman can communicate with sea creatures. He also wields a powerful trident that gives him control over the seas. The new movie was partially filmed in Oahu, Hawaii, so Momoa—who is Native Hawaiian—was right at home!
