Justice League Vs. Teen Titans Coming April 12, 2016 To Blu-ray/DVD/DHD From Warner Bros Home Entertainment

JLTT BD Combo 1

The demonic forces of Trigon infiltrate the minds and bodies of the Justice League, turning the veteran super heroes against their youthful counterparts in the all-new DC Universe Original Movie, Justice League vs. Teen Titans. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the film will be available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on April 12, 2016 on Blu-Ray Deluxe Edition, Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD.

Justice League vs. Teen Titans will be available on Blu-ray Deluxe Edition for $29.96 SRP, Blu-ray Combo Pack for $24.98 SRP, and DVD for $19.98 SRP.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet. The Blu-ray Deluxe Edition will include all components of the Blu-Ray Combo Pack, along with an exclusive Robin figurine in a numbered, limited edition gift set. Fans can also own Justice League vs. Teen Titans in Digital HD on March 29, 2016 via purchase from digital retailers.

Justice League vs. Teen Titans welcomes the Teen Titans to the ever-expanding canon of classic DC Comics characters within the DC Universe Original Movies. When Damian’s over-aggressive tendencies almost destroy a Justice League mission, he is sent to learn teamwork by training alongside the Teen Titans. However, adjusting Damian’s attitude turns out to be the least of the Teen Titans’ troubles as Raven’s satanic, world-conquering father Trigon begins an escape from his inter-dimensional prison. To complete his return, Trigon must have Raven’s assistance – and to accomplish his goal, he spreads his demonic forces across the globe, infiltrating the minds and bodies of the Justice League to do his bidding. To save the universe and prevent a literal hell on Earth, the Teen Titans must rescue – or defeat – the Justice League, and intern Trigon for all eternity.

The voice cast for Justice League vs. Teen Titans includes several actors reprising their recent Justice League roles – Jason O’Mara (Complications, Terra Nova) as Batman, Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me) as Superman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty) as Flash. Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) also returns as Nightwing, as does Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin) as Robin/Damian. Making their Teen Titans voiceover debuts are Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story, Wicked City) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy and Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire. Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Daredevil) takes the villainous center stage as Trigon.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Justice League vs. Teen Titans is directed by Sam Liu from a screenplay by Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett based on a story by Miller. James Tucker is Supervising Producer. Burnett is also co-Producer. Sam Register is Executive Producer.

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to bring the Teen Titans into the fold of amazing characters within the DC Universe Original Movies,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, TV Family, Animation Marketing. “This all-new film provides the Teen Titans with the perfect stage – alongside and against the Justice League – for a thrilling adventure that fans will truly enjoy.”

DC Entertainment Announces New Slate of Hanna-Barbera Titles

The classic Hanna-Barbera characters are back in a big way. As revealed by Entertainment Weekly, DC will launch a new line of comics dedicated to the classic characters, featuring titles like “Scooby Apocalypse,” “Future Quest,” “Wacky Racers,” “The Flintstones,” and possibly others. The creators involved include Amanda Conner (“The Flintstones”), “Mad Max: Fury Road” designer Mark Sexton (“Wacky Raceland”), Jeff Parker, Jim Lee and Howard Porter.

DC co-publisher Dan DiDio told EW that he “was always a fan of the old Hanna-Barbera characters, having grown up on them. I think what you find right now is there’s so much material on pop culture, and these characters resonate with so much of our fanbase. It was so fun to go out and look at them, but not just bring back versions that existed 40, 50 years ago and really look at it the way of saying, if these characters were created and interpreted today, how would they exist? So we handed off our materials to a number of top creators, and what came back was an exciting look that felt very true to the existence of the characters.”

Details are still forthcoming about the line, including the final lineup of titles and creators involved. As revealed by DiDio on Twitter, the line will include:

– The Flintstones by Amanda Conner and written by Mark Russell
– Wacky Racers by Mark Sexton and Ken Pontac
– Future Quest, starring the Hanna-Barbera action heroes (including Space Ghost and Johnny Quest) by Jeff Parker and Evan “Doc” Shaner
– Scooby Apocalypse from Jim Lee, Keith Giffen and Howard Porter

Lee and DiDio refer to “Scooby Apocalypse” as the “crown jewel” of the line. “I’m a huge Scooby Doo fan, as I think most people are,” said Lee. “I mean, look at these iconic series and they were cultural touchstones for everyone. All my kids know of Scooby Doo from the various cartoons and live action movies, and we’re in a period where you have people my age that are spending their days thinking about cartoon and sci-fi action movies. It’s a multigenerational obsession at this point, and we just thought it would just be really interesting to take the cartoon version of these characters and see where they would be if we took what existed in the very first iteration of the cartoon and moved it into this day and age.”

Justice League Action marks the first DC Comics-based franchise to launch on Cartoon Network since the highly-successful Teen Titans Go!, which in 2015 ranked as a top five animated series among Kids 2-11, 6-11 and all key Boys. Teen Titans Go! also ranks as Cartoon Network’s #1 property for cross-platform video plays and on VOD.
