New 'Teen Titans GO! to the Movies' Plot & Character Details Surface

Adjust Comment Print

The Cartoon Network series - which spun off from the much more serious show that deserves its own movie adaptation, Teen Titans - is comprised of brief, chaotic episodes that last no more than 15 minutes.

"Teen Titans GO! to the Movies" finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza-a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

Teen Titans GO! To the Movies has a release date set of July 27, 2018. Keeping track? The trailer preserves the shows roots as parody by poking fun at its own status as one of multitudes of superhero movies clogging the theaters, extolling itself as "The Super Hero Movie to End All Super Hero Movies, Hopefully", and drawing attention to the fact that Wonder Woman is the only recent DC movie to find any real critical success. The film stars Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Khary Payton, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch, Will Arnett, and Kristen Bell. The animated film offers kid-friendly comedy, superhero cameos and world-saving high jinks, but also some meta-commentary on Hollywood's obsession with comic-book do-gooders.

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! "And much like the Teen Titans themselves, I thought they deserved their own movie". Its self-aware satire like this that makes the typical superhero movie more refreshing.

The film is directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC. It will also feature the voices of Will Arnett and Kristen Bell. Michail, Will Arnett, Jed Weitzman, and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic, and Horvath serving as executive producers.

She's a Teen Titans rookie but Menville and his fellow castmates have been playing these heroes since 2003, in five seasons of the more serious superhero show Teen Titans, a series of lighthearted New Teen Titans shorts, and the proudly madcap Teen Titans GO!
