The Teen Titans have been a staple animated series over at Cartoon Network for the better part of the decade. What started out as a streamlined arcing adaptation of the comic book of the name has since been turned into a hilarious comedic look at the same beloved characters: Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy. Each of them embodies the teen angst and personalities that we know today. Robin is the leader of the group, Starfire is the cheerful naive heroine who hails from an alien planet, Cyborg is the strong technological half-human and half-machine hero, Raven is the isolated dark magic user with a heart of gold, and Beast Boy is the mischievous hero who can shape shift into any animal he chooses.
With Teen Titans Go still going strong at Cartoon Network, the series is now getting its first feature-length film titled Teen Titans Go! To The Movies that will hit theaters later this summer. And now, to get a first look at what’s to come, WB has released the first trailer for the film.
As expected, Teen Titans Go! To The Movies will embrace the animated series’ silliness and spirited attitude. It will be a lot of fun, as seen by the fart joke in the trailer. But what will make this animated superhero flick, that will supposedly end all superhero films, is the fact that there will be musical numbers in the film as well. Musical numbers have also been a part of the animated series as well, but this would be one of the first times we’ve seen it in a film.
Here’s the full synopsis,
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “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. 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. 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 team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line! Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show, which also stars 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, 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, Jed Weitzman, and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic, and Horvath serving as executive producers. Apart from Arnett and Weitzman, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.
“Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” will hit theaters on Set to release on July 27, 2018
