This new trailer is specifically aimed at a younger crowd and is mostly based on the first theatrical trailer, but removes the more violent and sexy parts. There are also images from some of the newer trailers and a few new bits thrown in (see below for more on that).For now this trailer is not on any official site, but is available at YouTube.
