Taylor Lautner fans are upset – and trending on social media!
The 28-year-old actor, who starred in 3-D movie Robert Rodriguez‘s The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 2005, was nowhere to be found on Netflix‘s announcement on the family follow-up film We Can Be Heroes on Tuesday (November 17).
The Netflix Film Twitter account shared screengrabs from the upcoming movie, which showed Taylor Dooley returning to her role as Lavagirl. However, a masked man who does not resemble Taylor Lautner is seen playing adult Sharkboy. A caption from the stills says that the actor playing Sharkboy is JJ Dashnaw.
In the movie, the heroes had become parents since the 2005 movie, with Vivien Lyra Blair , who played the girl in 2018 movie Bird Box, playing their daughter.
Fans on Twitter were outraged upon discovering this fact, calling the new actor an “imposter” and pointing out that Taylor was seemingly not returning for the follow-up.
