Cartoon Network's popular animated series Teen Titans GO! is following in the footsteps of practically every other superhero story these days and diving into the world of feature-length film. This animated movie developed by Warner Bros. will reportedly borrow the voices of two of music's own teen idols: Lil Yachty and Halsey.
The cartoon follows younger versions of the original Teen Titans cast, as DC characters Robin (Scott Menville), Starfire (Hynden Walch), Cyborg (Khary Payton), Raven (Tara Strong) and Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) navigate equally challenging situations like crime fighting and attaining a driver's license.
The trailer for the upcoming feature film Teen Titans GO! To the Movies gives you a little taste of the sly, meta-commentary that the show expertly infuses into its regular 15-minute episodes. Robin appears speaking directly to viewers, "Do you know what makes a real hero? It's not the costumes, the gadgets, the cool powers; it's having your own movie!" The show regularly pokes fun at common superhero tropes and society's collective obsession with the genre, and the movie will expand on that storyline as the Teen Titan squad ventures to "Tinseltown" in the hopes of meeting famous director Jade Wilson, voiced by Kristen Bell, for their shot at making it on the big screen.
USA Today reports that Lil Yachty will join the cast of voice actors with a cameo as Green Lantern, while Halsey will take on the role of Wonder Woman in the film. Executive Producer Sam Register said, "Every superhero in the DC Universe has an impact on the fans, so we felt a great responsibility to find a voice for each character that would not only suit the role, but the playful tone of the Titans, and we’re thrilled with our cameo cast."
