DC Super Hero Girls Are Getting Their Own Movie
It was definitely somewhat of a surprise when it was revealed last year that DC was going to be releasing mini-episodes of a new series called DC Super Hero Girls, a chain of webisodes designed with a target audience of young girls. Of course, the line went on to do extremely well, and even moved into the realm of comics and graphic novels before getting a second season, which started back in May. The episodes have even appeared on Boomerang and Cartoon Network, which is without doubt a big step forward for this new line.  

Now, DC Super Hero Girls are going even further with the announcement of their very first movie, DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year.



The official synopsis for the animated film was also released:

Opening quote
Where can you find the most powerful and prominent Super Teens in the galaxy? Super Hero High of course! Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy and Katana band together to navigate the twists and turns of high school in DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) this summer.

These young Super Heroes discover unique abilities, develop powers, and combat an abundance of overwhelming, exciting and awkward moments to master the fundamentals of being a hero – one day at a time! Together, these seven fearless Super Heroes prove that we all have the power to make the world a better place - even while school is in session!  

DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year features some of the top voice actors in the industry.  Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Mae Whitman (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy) Teala Dunn (Bumblebee), and Stephanie Sheh (Katana) join forces to portray some of the newest students to attend Super Hero High.
Closing quote


It's interesting that DC has learned to get 'em while they're young by creating interesting DC universe products like this targeting variable demographics. Many current fans became fans from the beloved DC animated series of their childhoods in the 90s and early 2000s. Nostalgia is a powerful tool, and getting children invested in characters that won't be going anywhere anytime soon is a really smart tactic. In other words, not only is DC providing entertainment to an often neglected demographic, but they're also creating life-long DC fans and consumers in the process.  

The movie will be released on digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD sometime this August.
