One of the biggest animated surprises of last year, was Teen Titans Go! To The Movies! It was filled with wild non-sequiturs, some decidedly questionable jokes and a willingness to both make fun of the DC movies and the superhero genre as a whole. Most people would tell you it was a lot funnier than it had any right to be. They’d also likely point out that the OG Teen Titans, from Cartoon Network, popped-up in a post credit sequence. This was but a tease of an up coming special one-off movie, Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans. Today we’re lucky enough to get a trailer for the special, which is packed with a whole bunch of, well, maybe you should just see it for yourself.
Admittedly, this is an interesting route to take with a team-up. Fan of the original Teen Titans show have been clamoring for a continuation for sometime. Now, a sticking point may be the deviation of the design of some of the characters, yet there’s an energy and focus on “fun” here, that is perfect for a DTV offering. And if there’s one place that Warner Bros. has excelled with their comic book features, it’s on the animation side. They constantly pump out features like this 3-4 times a year. More often than not, they’re high quality. A few times even doing standout adaptations of some of the best comic stories ever. Crossing fingers that streak doesn’t end here.
What do you think of the trailer, dear reader? Are you more a fan of Teen Titans or Teen Titans Go!? What side of this great divide do you fall on? Did you catch the theatrical film last year? Future generations will judge your decision harshly, so choose wisely! Here’s the rub though, there isn’t a release date, at the moment. Expect Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans to land on DVD/Blu Ray/VOD before the end of the year.
