Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is in select theaters on July 27th, 2018.

Let me preface this by saying I grew up on cartoons, actual 2D cartoons - they didn’t have CGI in the late 80’s/early 90’s. It’s something I miss dearly and I am still a cartoon watcher to this day. So I give major credit and praise to both Warner Brothers and DC comics for making this movie in 2D and I think it’s a breath of fresh air in the ever growing long list of terrible animated films that have awful storylines and get by on CGI.

That being said - let’s get down to it!

Our favorite super heroes make it to the big screen in this film based on the animated Show - Teen Titans Go! Robin, Starfire, Raven, Cyborg and my favorite - Beast Boy set out to Hollywood to become movie stars! They try to get hired by the most famous Movie Director, Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell) and discover that being famous isn’t all it’s lived up to be. Their friendships and limits are tested as they overcome obstacles and try to keep the team together. This movie is so unique in that DC a knowledges a lot of their shortcomings and continuously pokes fun at themselves. We have tons of cameos from other superheroes across the Warner Brothers universe and some extra surprise guests too! They add in throwbacks to famous cartoons, comics and mix in different animation styles.

I absolutely loved this movie. It made me feel like a kid again and I just had fun. It brought me back to my childhood and the reason I’m such a nerd today - cartoons, cartoons, cartoons! I brought my four year old niece and she didn’t want to leave the theater!

Also - can we talk about the ending credit scene?!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5
