Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to arrive in December, and the first trailer for the DC sequel teases a sibling team-up to battle Black Manta. Warner Bros. Pictures released the trailer for the final DCEU film on Tuesday, and you can check it out below.

The trailer sees Arther (Jason Momoa) adjusting to life as King of Atlantis while also being a father. When Black Manta threatens his family, he retrieves his estranged brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) to protect Atlantis and take down Manta.

The film is directed by James Wan from a script by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. It stars Momoa, Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Randall Park, and Temuera Morrison and arrives on December 20th. It’s described as follows:

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.
