Get ready for a super dose of irreverent kid-friendly, meta-based wit when ‘Teen Titans GO! to the Movies’ arrives in theaters July 27.
As Teen Titans Go! To the Movies prepares for its theatrical debut, reviews are comparing the film based on the Cartoon Network animated series and the DC Comics characters to Marvel’s Deadpool. Maybe that’s because the Teen Titans have always led with their irreverent kid-friendly, meta-based wit that celebrates fart jokes and teamwork alike.
The film’s premise -- Robin wants to star in his own movie -- should be a major tip-off that even while boasting a cast of DC Comics stars, this won’t be your typical superhero movie:
It seems to the Teen Titans 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 supervillain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry.
Ahead of film’s arrival, we’ve rounded up a slew of clips showcasing the Teen Titans in action on the big screen, including some musical numbers, such as the “Upbeat Inspirational Song About Life.”
