I'm excited to see the Teen Titans movie with a full length plot on the big screen

#Superman64 was trending on Twitter
Too often series like this announce a "movie" that's simply a few episodes strung together. This is actually destined for the big screen!
#Superman64 was trending on Twitter I'll admit the re-runs of Teen Titans get fairly annoying on Cartoon Network, but I loved this series when it premiered in the Summer of 2003. My son and I couldn't get enough of this show when it came out on DVD and we even enjoyed the THQ video game for Gamecube (also on PS2). It was an average beat-em-up style game, but the unique Titan characters kind of won us over!

It took a while for me to adjust (and accept) the Teen Titans Go version of the show. As I saw it, the characters were re-imagined in a much more child-like manner - more of a Toddler Titans sort of approach. Cartoon Network did the same thing with Scooby Doo. I'm not a fan of this style, but the new Teen Titans finally won us over.

I'm hoping the longer format of Teen Titans Go To The Movies will create a more engaging story, running for the duration of the movie. It can be harder to create the same cohesion when each episode is less than 15 minutes. I'm hoping the movie format benefits the storytelling aspect... and it's kickass-ness :)
