"You have powers beyond your imagination!" DreamWorks Animation has debuted a second trailer for upcoming surprise summer movie called Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken, opening in theaters this June after The Little Mermaid. This summer, DWA dives into the turbulent waters of high school with a hilarious, heartfelt action comedy about a shy teen who discovers she's a royal member of the mythical sea krakens and that her destiny, in the depths of the oceans, is bigger than she ever dreamed. Lana Condor stars as the voice of Ruby, a 16-year-old desperate to fit in at Oceanside High, who confronts a beautiful, popular new girl that just happens to be a mermaid. Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken features an extraordinary cast that includes Emmy winner Colman Domingo as Ruby's supportive dad, Sam Richardson as Ruby's enthusiastic uncle, and Blue Chapman as Ruby’s cool little brother, plus the voices of Toni Collette, Jaboukie Young-White, Annie Murphy, Will Forte, Nicole Byer, Ramona Young, as well as the great Jane Fonda. Why does this look so good?! I'm even more interested in seeing this than I am Little Mermaid, as it looks original and clever, flipping a story we think we know into something else. I'm curious.
Here's the second official trailer for DWA's Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken, direct from YouTube:

Sweet, awkward 16-year-old Ruby Gillman (Lana Condor) is desperate to fit in at Oceanside High, but she mostly just feels invisible. She's math-tutoring her skater-boy crush (Jaboukie Young-White), who only seems to admire her for her fractals, and she's prevented from hanging out with the cool kids at the beach because her over-protective supermom (Toni Collette), has forbade Ruby from ever getting in the water. But when she breaks her mom's #1 rule, Ruby will discover that she is a direct descendant of the warrior Kraken queens and is destined to inherit the throne from her commanding grandmother (Jane Fonda), the Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas. The Kraken are sworn to protect the oceans of the world against the vain, power-hungry mermaids who have been battling with the Kraken for eons. There's one major, and immediate, problem with that: The school's beautiful, popular new girl, Chelsea (Annie Murphy) happens to be a mermaid. Ruby will ultimately need to embrace who she is and go big to protect those she loves…
