The official teaser trailer for “Magic Mike XXL,” the sequel to 2012’s “Magic Mike," has been released. The sequel will follow Channing Tatum’s character Mike, a stripper and aspiring furniture maker, through—well, we have no idea. The trailer gives no indicator of what the movie is about, but it does provide plenty of shirtless scenes. According to IMDB's summary for "comedy" film, the movie will simply be a "continuing" of Tatum's character's life story.
Of course, Tatum isn’t the one with a six pack in “Magic Mike XXL.” Joe Maganiello and Golden Globe winner Matt Bomer also join in on the fun. Apparently, filmmakers are hoping this is exactly what fans wanted. Before showing the logo and release date, the trailer shows a title card that simply reads, “You’re Welcome.”
Actresses attached to the film include Elizabeth Banks, Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Tatum debuted the trailer on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” Feb. 4. When DeGeneres asked him about a specific dance with his new co-star Stephen “tWitch” Boss, it was revealed that they wear thongs in the sequence.
“There’s nothing -- very little -- left to the imagination," Tatum said of the routine.
“That’s why the movie is popular, Channing,” DeGeneres said.
“Magic Mike XXL” hits theaters in July 2015.
