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.

Although Batman: Bad Blood is on the horizon. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is already hard at work on its next big DC animated movie, Justice League vs. Teens Titans. The introduction of the Teen Titans will surely inject some new blood and youth into this DC Universe. And while the Teen Titans do currently have a hit show on Cartoon Network in Teen Titans Go, this will be the first time we she them show up in a full length DC animated feature. When introducing a whole new cast of characters like this, its important you get the right people to voice them, as in animation the voice is often where the character lives.
The creative team behind Justice League vs. Teen Titans, producer James Tucker and director Sam Liu, have compiled an amazing cast to help bring these new characters to life. Jon Bernthal, current Punisher and former member of The Walking Dead, will voice what we assume is the movie’s villain, Trigon. For those of you who don’t know Trigon is the demon father of Titans member Raven who will be voiced by Taissa Farmiga. You may recognize her from the early seasons of American Horror Story.
Rounding out the cast we have Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb) as the alien Starfire, Brandon Soo Hoo (From Dusk Till Dawn) as the animal shape-shifter Beast Boy, and Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, Rio 2) as Blue Beetle. Returning voices to the DC animated world include Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, Christopher Gorham as the Flash, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Sean Maher as Nightwing, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, and Stuart Allen as Robin.
As you can see DC/WB have out done themselves in the casting the department as this is shaping up to be quite and epic meeting of heroes. Justice League vs Teen Titans is slated to arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD this spring.
James Tucker, with script and animation from Alan Burnett and Bryan Q. Miller, is putting together a story in Justice League vs Teen Titans that sends Robin to work with the Titans after his volatile behavior botches a Justice League mission. The young team then must really step up to face Trigon after he possesses the League and threatens to conquer the world.
