Review: With the help of an amulet from Krypton, Lex Luthor unites a group Super-Villains to banish all Super Heroes to the Phantom Zone. With this evil plot accomplished only the DC Super Hero Girls remain to stop the Legion of Doom. So the girls must travel across the multiverse to free their fellow heroes, and with the help of the Teen Titans, defeat the assembly of antagonists before chaos reigns supreme! Get ready for an epic battle to save all universes in the Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse.

As a huge fan of the Cartoon Network series Teen Titans Go! I was very excited to see the release of Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse. Although I had little knowledge of the DC Super Hero Girls I was still curious how these two DC franchises would play off each other. Sadly, I soon discovered that this movie is a classic "bait and switch" - shame on you DC! The Teen Titans are used to set up this movie as if they are actually watching it and do briefly interact at some point, so the DC Super Hero Girls are the main focus, which is fine, but the ratio of the two franchise are 80% to 20%. The movie should have been called: DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse... with the Teen Titans... for only a few mere moments. And to add insult to injury, the Teen Titans actually make a meta joke telling the viewer that that was the very intent behind the creation of this very animated movie. Ugh!

The plot revolves around an amulet that the evil Cythonna uses to control Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom in order to banish the Justice League to the Phantom Zone. And with every evil deed, she regains her strength to rule the multiverses - you know, that old chestnut. There's plenty of humor and action to keep one engaged, but it just wasn't enough for me.

To be quite honest, I was bummed out as I watched realizing that my favorite characters were relegated to guest star status, but I soldiered on. I was surprised how enjoyable the movie was. I liked the humor, the characters (Wonder Woman, Bumblebee, Green Lantern, Supergirl, Batgirl, and Zatanna), and the messages of believing in yourself and triumphing over adversity - but it just didn't have enough of the Teen Titans and their ridiculous shenanigans for my liking. A much better team up, in my opinion would be: Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans (2019). Each series is given significant screen time and a common goal to work together to achieve.

I think fans of Teen Titans Go! will be seriously disappointed by this outing, but DC Super Hero Girls fans will be ever so delighted by this fun and funny adventure. It is enjoyable, but I just can't get over the fact that I feel dooped by the advertising.

To get your Teen Titans Go! fix may I suggest: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) and Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans (2019).

Stars (out of 4):

Fun Fact: This movie was originally going to be just about DC Superhero Girls, but then executives asked for Teen Titans Go to be included in it.
