In time for Memorial Day weekend here in the US, Cartoon Network has released a behind the scenes featurette for the upcoming movie, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies.
Cartoon Network is calling it a sneak peek, but it’s definitely more of a focus on the voice actors rather than any tease to the movie itself. My definition of a sneak peek usually ends up being like a 2-3 minute snippet of the movie, likely the beginning. While a lot more of the plot has been revealed than ever before, the eye is definitely more so drawn to the actors in the studio.
It’s very meta.
Check it out below:
As meta as I thought the movie was going to be, it got even more so. It seems the Teen Titans want a movie to be made about them… because real superheroes get movies. And then, Slade comes back because Robin needs a nemesis. Though it’s understandable that Will Arnett come in after his extremely popular turn as LEGO Batman, but I miss Ron Perlman in the role.
As I said, I was definitely having a lot more fun with the actors in the studio. As a voice actor buff, this was especially endearing for me. You can tell they have a blast recording their lines. It was a bit fun also to hear that their character voices are close to their “normal” voices. It’s the power of acting that makes these characters unique and different.
Teen Titans GO! to Movies hits theatres on July 27th.
