The first trailer for Raising Dion, the new Netflix Original Series from executive producer/star Michael B. Jordan, plays like a teaser for a big-screen story, but fans will be getting much more when the superhero tale arrives on Netflix next month.
The story, based on the comic by Dennis Liu who also co-directs, follows a family trying to deal with the newly developed superpowers of their young son, Dion.
And while the trailer is spoilery for certain major elements of the story, some of which are a little tropey and predictable, overall the tone is sweeter than the “super-powered kid gone bad” takes that we’ve seen in recent years. Fingers crossed that Raising Dion has a hopeful note and brings something fresh to the genre.
