As the title suggests, Snake Eyes is a prequel set before the events of 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and its sequel, 2013's Retaliation -- in which Ray Park played Snake Eyes -- and finally declassifies the character's origins, introducing the man behind the mask and revealing how Snake Eyes became Snake Eyes.
The trailer sees Snake taken in by the ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage, where he's trained in their ways. We're also teased introductions to iconic Hasbro characters like Arashikage heir Storm Shadow (played by Andrew Koji), villainess The Baroness (Úrsula Corberó) and O.G. G.I. team member, Scarlett (Samara Weaving).
Watch the trailer above and a new behind-the-scenes featurette below:
"It's gonna literally blow people away," Golding told ET ahead of the teaser's debut during Sunday's 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards. "It is of a different material than we've seen so far, and I think kicking off the new G.I. Joe universe, this is the best way possible... We wanted to make sure that the pre-existing fans would love it as much as the new fans. I think we definitely do that."
