Teen Titans Go! to the Movies! Sidekicks are Superheroes, too!  #TeenTitansGOMovie

"Titans, you guys are never actually doing anything heroic."-Superman

We've been counting down the days to see the Teen Titans on the big screen! The whole family. 

Last Saturday, we got the chance to see Teen Titans Go! to the Movies! Let me tell you, it is so good and so very funny, we are going to see it again! 

Robin, Raven, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Starfire feel that they get no respect for being superheroes from their peers. While they live in the DC Universe, they aren't on the same level as the big name heroes who get movie deals. Now, my kids were quick to point out that Cyborg is in a movie, but he wasn't the lead. Which is the point, Robin feels they deserve a movie to be seen as the real deal.

Let’s face it, you’re not a real superhero without your very own movie. #TeenTitansGOMovie only in theaters July 27

The DC movies and anime can get so dark and gloomy. I think that's what I find endearing to the current Teen Titans Go! compared to the Teen Titans circa early 2000s. This movie is fun to watch - bright colors, quick takes, fast pace, and visually appealing. And, the music is pretty fantastic, too. It has a few musical style songs that are laughable and charming.

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 Arnet, 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. source

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies has really smart, clever writing. While aiming for kids, adults were laughing along and sometimes without the kids. I had a good time discovering one-liners and gags that never would I ever thought would be possible due to licensing rights and what not. There is no shortage of fart jokes and goofiness but doesn't go overboard.

My daughter insists that the movie was only twenty minutes long. I assure it, the movie was a full feature but didn't feel drawn out. The Titans have a plan to get their own movie and in the process of becoming the heroes of this movie, become heroes.


We highly recommend seeing Teen Titans Go! to the Movies in the theaters starting July 27 especially if you are comic book fans.
