WATCH: Bradley Cooper Embraces the Leotard Look in Official Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Trailer

Here's something to chat about over hot dogs and fireworks this holiday weekend – the official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is here, and it's a feast of nostalgic (and not-so-clean) fun.

The cast alone is worth celebrating. In addition to Wet Hot's original players (Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, and director David Wain in an on-camera role), newcomers Kristen Wiig, Jordan Peele, H. Jon Benjamin, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Michael Cera, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Jon Hamm signed on for the prequel sequel, upping the wackiness exponentially.

Among other things, the Netflix original series promises the characters from the 2001 film are younger and hotter (or, you know, 14 years older and often wearing terrible wigs). Here are some of the highlights of the nutty trailer:

Christopher Meloni is likely most immediately familiar to fans as Detective Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but he also has a diverse career that includes voiceover work and plenty of offbeat comedies.

Meloni's newest film, They Came Together, is a comedy from Wet Hot American Summer director David Wain and finds him reunited with other Wet Hot alums like Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler. We talked to Meloni about the new film, Law & Order, and that one time a guy thought he was Elias Koteas.
