DC Entertainment is putting out animated films like they’re going out of style (don’t worry, they aren’t!). Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is a film that fans have been waiting for since the start of the DC Animated Universe when Superman: Doomsday was released almost ten years ago. And now, the wait is finally almost over.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be released on digital HD, Blu-Ray/ DVD combo pack on April 18, 2017. There will even be a special gift set for sale that includes a Blue Beetle figurine! The Deluxe gift set will run $39.99 USD, the Blu-Ray combo pack will be $24.98, and the DVD will be $19.98. The Digital HD of the film will be available for download on April 4, 2017.
The Blu-Ray Deluxe Giftset and Blu-Ray combo pack include a sneak peek at the next DC Universe Original film, Batman and Harley Quinn, as well as a documentary feature revolving around Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, a short featurette telling the story of Deathstroke’s origin, as well as two bonus DCAU cartoons. The DVD will only include the sneak peek into Batman and Harley Quinn. Check out the press release, box art, and brand new trailer below!
Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil; but their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.
Christina Ricci (Zelda, Sleepy Hollow, The Addams Family) and the late Miguel Ferrer (NCIS: Los Angeles, RoboCop, Crossing Jordan) join the already established Teen Titans voice cast as Terra and Deathstroke, respectively. Returning Titans actors include Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire, and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian. Gregg Henry (Scandal, The Killing, Payback) voices the villainous Brother Blood.
The voice cast also includes Maria Canals-Barrera (Wizards of Waverly Place) as Jaime’s mother, Meg Foster (They Live) as Mother Mayhem, Crispin Freeman (Justice League Action, Batman: Arkham games) as Speedy, Masasa Moyo (Young Justice) as Bumblebee, David Zayas (Gotham, Dexter) as Jaime’s father, Jason Spisak (Young Justice) as Kid Flash, and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Geeking Out) as … himself.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is directed by Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) from a screenplay by Ernie Altbacker (Justice League Dark). Sam Register is Executive Producer; James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) is Supervising Producer; and Alan Burnett (Justice League vs. Teen Titans) is co-Producer.
