Stop what you're doing, because Netflix just gave us the first official look at the Sharkboy & Lavagirl sequel, We Can Be Heroes. Unfortunately, there's a HUGE catch and it has to do with Taylor Lautner.

The Twilight heartthrob started trending on Twitter after fans noticed that he won't be returning as Sharkboy for the film's sequel. According to Netflix, Sharkboy and Lavagirl are parents now and it looks like their daughter will be stepping up to save the world.

While there's no word as to why Taylor hasn't come back for the sequel, the actor has been busy spending time with his GF, Taylor Dome.

According to IMDB, Taylor Lautner doesn't have any known projects in the works and he was last seen in the BBC and Netflix series Cuckoo, although, he did not appear in the show's final season in 2019.

The Sharkboy and Lavagirl sequel does bring back Taylor Dooley (yes, another Taylor) as Lavagirl. J.J. Dashnaw is taking over the role as Sharkboy.

After the news about the sequel broke, fans all over the internet freaked out over the recasting.


"Now what was Taylor Lautner doing that was so important he couldn’t help us relive our childhoods for a second," wrote another.

Talyor Lautner still hasn't reacted to the news on his social media, but at least knows how much we're hoping for his big return to our screens.
