Filming on Ant-Man and the Wasp has begun, and to mark the occasion, Marvel has released a cool little video from the set of the comic book movie (complete with the cutest mini director's chairs ever), along with a fresh new logo.

The movie will see the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne. Also back for the sequel are Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, fan favorite Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and David Dastmalchian (who recently did a stint on The CW’s Flash as Abra Kadabra).

Joining the cast is Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne (the original Wasp), the awesome Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Killjoys’ Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo, and Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, aka Goliath. Ant-Man’s Peyton Reed is back in the director’s chair, with a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, and Paul Rudd.

Here’s a synopsis:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

The first movie was such a boatload of miniaturized fun, it's hard not to be excited for the sequel. How about you? Ant-Man and the Wasp will buzz into movie theaters on July 6, 2018.
