The Teen Titans are making the jump to the big-screen this summer, and Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for the film. Titled “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies,” the story find the Super Heroes in their first feature film, fully equipped with musical numbers and action.
The studio teased the released adding, “It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.” Warner Bros. added, “But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry.”
The film will feature two titans of the animated-comedy genre, Will Arnett (“The LEGO Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”), who lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show. The film will also feature Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, all reprising their roles from the series.
The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC. Michail, Will Arnett and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic and Horvath serving as executive producers. Apart from Arnett, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.
If you need to set a reminder, “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” is set to release on July 27, 2018.
Warner Bros. has been a roll with CGI/animated hits every since “The LEGO Movie” released in theaters back in 2014. That film made over $469M worldwide, and lead to “The LEGO Batman Movie” in 2017 which made $311M worldwide. The studio also released “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” in 2017, but that film only made $123M worldwide, which is still a success but failed to reach the heights of the previous LEGO films.
