May 1 (UPI) — Robin the Boy Wonder wants to be featured in a film like the other characters in the DC universe in the latest trailer for Teen Titans GO! to the Movies.
The clip released Tuesday features Robin and his Teen Titans teammates Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Raven, discovering that instead of Robin, Batman’s trusted butler Alfred is getting his own featured film.
Robin, disappointed, begins noticing that Warner Bros. is making movies based on most DC characters except for him and his teammates.
Robin, after learning from a Hollywood director that the Teen Titans are not taken seriously, devises a plan to enlist a legitimate villain to fight in order to be considered worthy of having their own movie. The villainous Slade, voiced by Will Arnett, then enters the picture and begins to give the super team more then they can handle.
“It seems to the Teens that all the major super heroes 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,” reads the synopsis. “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!”
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is set to release on July 27. The film will feature the voice talents from the animated series including Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven and Hynden Walch as Starfire, along with Kristen Bell. The film is based on the Cartoon Network animated series of the same name.
