The official full-length trailer for NBC’s new bio-graphical sitcom “Young Rock” following the story of the Hollywood star and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been dropped by The Rock on his official YouTube channel itself, and this time the trailer has a lot to offer. Previously, we reported the one-minute teaser The Rock dropped on to his Instagram along with the cast, release date, and broke the trailer down for you to see what we can expect from the biographical sitcom created by Nahnatchka Khan and Dwayne Johnson himself. This time the new trailer sees The Rock being in the future taking part in the presidential elections to stories revolving around wrestling and André The Giant. We repeat, the trailer has showcased a lot for the series.
One of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood right now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson started his career stepping into the footsteps of his family as a professional wrestler who transitioned into a Hollywood star who has a huge fan base and people who look up to him today and now they will see his story transitioning as a kid to the man he is today in the upcoming NBC’s Young Rock. The show is set to follow the story of Dwayne Johnson in three different generations right from his childhood adoring his father as his very own hero to hitting puberty at a very early age in his teens to conquering his dreams in his 20s. So without any further adieu, let’s take a look at the new “Young Rock” trailer.
NBC’s Young Rock – New Full-Length Trailer
The new full-length official trailer of NBC’s Young Rock has clearly established the biographical and sitcom tone crossing over brilliantly. If you watch the trailer it may remind you of shows like “Everybody Hates Chris” created and narrated by Chris Rock himself where the show portrayed Chris Rock’s teen years and NBC’s Young Rock is pretty much following the same formula.
But like we said above, the show has a lot more than that which takes us to the future and a lot of wrestling stories for the first season at least. So check out the trailer and its breakdown below.
NBC’s Young Rock- New Trailer Breakdown
Much like the previous one-minute teaser, the new full-length official trailer of NBC’s Young Rock began showcasing The Rock’s clips from his Hollywood movies and matches from his professional wrestling and football career along with the life he is living as one of the biggest Hollywood stars. But then Boom! we are in 2032.
Yes, you read it right, the show transports us into 2032 where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has joined the U.S. Presidential race and narrating his story to one of our favorite sitcoms star Randall Park who is sporting the role of an interviewer. The Rock starts narrating his story taking us back to the time when he was a 10-year-old living in Hawaii as part of a wrestling family as he talks about watching his father Rocky Johnson wrestle in the ring and how he was a superhero to him
We also see a little quirky intelligence from the 10-year-old Dwayne played by Adrian Groulx who as narrated by Dwayne Johnson himself tells that he was fed with a lot of life lessons at an early age from his legendary wrestling family. Also, The Rock’s mother Ata Johnson played by Stacey Leilua is someone to look for with the way she shouted at the couple ignoring the wrestling match. The Johnson family is indeed amazing for sure.
Next, the trailer takes us to a 15-year-old Dwayne Johnson played by Bradley Constant who hit puberty at a very young age growing a mustache, and his friends telling him he looks like an undercover cop as he struggles to be a normal teenager at school. Next, we see a glimpse of 20-year-old Johnson played by Uli Latukefu who is on his road to conquer the dreams to be just like his father Rocky Johnson.
In the end, we see glimpses of The Rock growing up among his wrestling family always surrounded by his father’s wrestling stories, lessons, and wrestler friends including the likes of André The Giant, and also the revelation of the entertainment sport being called “fake” which for a second grabs everyone’s attention but the show goes on.
The trailer ends with The Rock stating that there are a lot more stories he wants to tell the world, probably teasing more seasons for the show but an official statement from The Rock at the end states that there are lots of stories revolving around André The Giant we are about to witness as we see a giant 7-foot actor playing the role of the legendary wrestler walking into the class of 10-year-old Dwayne Johnson.
From the looks of the trailer, we can say that NBC’s Young Rock is not only the story of Dwayne Johnson but also pays homage to his legendary wrestling family along with some quirkiness and funny stories added into the mix. Apart from The Rock learning from his father, we may also see taking him lessons from other legendary wrestlers especially André The Giant as revealed in the trailer for the very first season.
The trailer at the end saw The Rock stating that there are more stories he wants to share with us which may tease that NBC’s Young Rock may have more than one season in the future. So fingers crossed. So far the trailer was a great bunch of biographical and sitcom mix that NBC brings us and we expect the show to be the same.
Young Rock is premiering on February 16, 2021, through the NBC Network. The biographical sitcom is created by Dwayne Johnson along with Nahnatchka Khan who is known for creating “Fresh Off The Boat”. The series stars Adrian Groulx as the 10-year-old Rock, Bradley Constant as the 15-year-old Rock, and Uli Latukefu as the 18-20-year-old Rock. They are joined by Stacey Leilua as The Rock’s mother Ata Johnson, Joseph Lee Anderson as The Rock’s father Rocky Johnson, and Ana Tuisila as The Rock’s grandmother Lia Maivia.
