Teen Titans GO! to the Movies Review

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies (Rated PG) 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.

Hawaii Dad Blog Review:
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies centers round the group's longing to be in a superhero movie like their fellow DC superheroes.  True to form, Robin becomes obsessed with breaking out of his sidekick role and breaking into the spotlight, even if it's at the expense of Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Raven. He reaches out to the hot Hollywood director, Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell), to get her to give him his own movie. He also tries to develop an archenemy relationship with the villain, Slade (Will Arnett), in hopes that their rivalry will cause others to see him as a serious superhero.

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies had a good dose of the typical smart humor that I’ve always enjoyed on the TV series. The cheesy songs that fans are familiar with from the TV show are present in the movie as well. I thought it was cool how many stars, such as Nicholas Cage, Halsey, Patton Oswalt, and Jimmy Kimmel lent their voice to the movie. There’s also one very unexpected cameo that was a joy to see.

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies was a great movie.  Any Teen Titans GO! will find it enjoyable.  My son is a Teen Titans GO! fan himself, and he thoroughly enjoyed it.

GO! to the Movies and catch the Teen Titans on the big screen!

Mahalo to the sponsor for the screening tickets.
