'The Matrix Resurrections' Trailer Reunites Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and the Red Pill

Here's your first look at Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris and Jonathan Groff.

"After all these years, to be going back to where it all started -- back to the Matrix." Indeed, it's been more than 20 years since Neo first chose the red pill, but The Matrix Resurrections trailer reunites Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity for another trip down the rabbit hole.

The fourth film in the series seemingly picks back up in a blue-pilled world, with Neo re-introduced as Thomas A. Anderson. Thomas has been having dreams "that weren't just dreams" and soon enough, he crosses paths with Trinity and the two are thrust back into the sci-fi, slo-mo, bullet-stopping action.

As for new additions to the franchise, Neil Patrick Harris appears as Thomas' psychologist, Priyanka Chopra is briefly seen reading a copy of Alice Through the Looking-Glass, Jessica Henwick has a rabbit tattoo and promises to reveal certain truths, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II looks particularly Morpheus-y. Jonathan Groff's mysterious character gets the above line reading in the trailer.

Jada Pinkett Smith will also return, reprising her role as Niobe, though she does not appear in the trailer. The same goes for Matrix newcomer Christina Ricci.

The Matrix Resurrections hails from Lana Wachowski, who wrote and directed the first three films in the franchise -- The Matrix (1999), Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions (2003) -- with her sister, Lilly. This was instead co-written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. (Lilly has explained why she didn't return to the franchise.)

Warner Bros.

The Matrix Resurrections is in theaters and streaming on HBO Max on Dec. 22.
