What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Aquaman is a DC Comics superhero action movie that takes place in the same universe as Justice League. Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) is the son of a lighthouse keeper and the queen of Atlantis (Nicole Kidman), an advanced undersea civilization. Because of his heritage, Arthur has the ability to control ocean creatures. When his half-brother King Orm (Patrick Wilson) threatens war on the surface world, fellow Atlantean Mera (Amber Heard) comes to find Arthur to encourage him to claim his right to the throne in order to protect both land and ocean from destruction. Expect plenty of sci-fi action and violence, as well as romance and swearing, but this will likely be appropriate for mature tween and teen superhero fans.
