The best SDCC 2022 trailers

San Diego Comic-Con came back strong this year, with exciting announcements about Dungeons & Dragons, Marvel, DC, and every franchise in between. The in-person panels were filled with news, tearful reunions — and goodbyes — and so many trailers. Luckily, you don’t have to be seated in Hall H to get your first looks. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Where I am Groot— Polygon has compiled a list of the most revealing SDCC 2022 trailers, which we’ll be updating throughout the weekend.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Thieves

Comic-Con is always a weekend filled with big news and unexpected announcements, but perhaps one of the event’s happiest surprises is just how good the next D&D movie is. The first trailer for honor among thieves contains everything we love about Dungeons & Dragons and Chris “The best Chris” Pine.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

More Amazon shows us rings of powerthe more excited we are for the the Lord of the Rings prequel series. The latest trailer gives us an even better look at Middle-earth in the Second Age, including where the show will find dwarves, elves, hobbits, and humans. And, oh yeah, it also might have given us our first look at Sauron.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead returns in October to conclude the series after 11 bloody seasons. Ahead of the series’ final eight episodes, AMC has released a new trailer that sets up what’s to come – and it doesn’t look too good for our heroes. Again, would we really expect anything else?

Tales of the Living Dead

Tales of the Living Dead is the third spin-off of the zombie drama, but the first to break from the formula and embrace anthology storytelling. Each episode of the AMC series will tell a standalone story and will focus primarily on new characters. Based on this trailer, Tales of the Living Dead embraces freedom of format, giving us tones and storytelling we’ve never seen in this universe before.

I am Groot

The latest Marvel show to sprout on Disney Plus, I am Groot follows Baby Groot (voiced once again by Vin Diesel) as he embarks on all sorts of adorable adventures on a planet filled with even more adolescent creatures. The first full trailer shows Baby Groot embracing his awesomeness, and while there’s no sign of Rocket Raccoon, the fact that Bradley Cooper is reprising the role means we can expect a family reunion when this series of five shorts will debut in August.

Teen Wolf: The Movie

One of the first highlights of SDCC 2022, the Teen Wolf: The Movie The trailer took fans back to Beacon Hills, the site of so many otherworldly feuds and flesh-and-blood crushes. Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) is back, as expected, so the real surprise is the return of Allison Argent, whose death in season three remains shocking after all this time. On the panel, Teen Wolf Creator Jeff Davis said the film would provide an “emotional ending” to his supernatural drama.

National Treasure: Edge of History

Waiting for more national treasure is over – but instead of a third Nicolas Cage movie, producer Jerry Bruckheimer is pivoting to the small screen with edge of history, a “younger” version of the franchise. The first teaser for the series, which has 10 episodes, introduces us to the new face of treasure hunting: Lisette Olivera as Jess Morales.

The Dragon Prince

After three years of absence, Netflix The Dragon Prince returned with a compelling first look at season four. Instead of a deluge of scenes, this trailer focuses on what appear to be the opening scenes for the new season, which will debut this winter.
