The trailer kicks off with Kamala in her high school’s guidance counsellor’s office with the visuals accompanied by speech bubbles, hearts and even devil horns. Kamala is branded a “weirdo” by the people around her because of her big imagination. “Maybe they’re right. I spend too much time in fantasy land,” she says.

Later, fantasy becomes reality when Kamala gains cosmic powers. The trailer ends with Kamala saying, “I’m a superhero”.
