    Not understanding the rabid hate for this cartoon. My kids love it, and whenever I watch it with them, I find it very funny too.

    Personally I find it excessively repetitive, lowbrow, overplayed, (it taked up the majority of CN's airtime) and just generally having nothing to do with the Teen Titans. You could just as easily swap them out for generic characters with similar powers.

    I have to disagree with this.
    I LOVE the original TT show, and what TTG does is poke fun at it by taking the team's standout personality traits and turn them up to 11. Robin has gone from an almost stereotypically capable leader-type to an obsessive-compulsive perfectionist. Starfire is even MORE bubbly and naïve, and it's become a running joke how she constantly rebuffs Robin's advances, parodying the romantic tension of the original show. Cyborg is even more obsessed with food, Beast Boy is more of a joking slob, and Raven is almost self-aware that she's a goth stereotype.

    Same characters, just exaggerated for comic effect. At its core, it's a send-up of the original show, and of superheroes in general.

    Whew, I was beginning to think the number of people who like TTG (like me) were in the extreme minority. I turn it on whenever I have a chance, it's hilarious. My favorite ep is probably the first one with the "Night Begins to Shine" song, I think it was called "40/40/20" or something. That ep is just soooo wonderfully over-the-top 80's, it's like I'm 8 again.

    Which is what the old TT cartoon was already doing. So their personalities are at, like, 22 now or something :p 

    I get it. I really do. But I didn't care for it the first go around, so it's not surprising that a lot of people don't care for it in concentrated form. And it's definitely debatable whether self-parody really counts as keeping a character's personality.

    The fact that something that is supposed to be a guaranteed hit as "another Batman series" is blatantly sabotaged before it even premieres should raise some eyebrows.

    I don't even hate the show and it's fine that it's popular with kids. I'm specifically calling out Cartoon Network's blatant bias and favoritism with it SINCE THE BEGINNING. So, your attempt to try to lump me in with the other joyless adults who hate the show for that is very feeble.

    My brother and little cousins love the show, too, but even they complain that it's on all the time and they don't get to watch other cartoons more often.

    Maybe if they do it in "Night Begins to Shine" format, it could be epic.

    They're the guys who created Dragon Ball Z Abridged and knows stuff through the Source Material while retelling DBZ in a Comedic take.

    No, as in a Fully action packed half hour animated series that what Action should've been. And yes the DBZ influence means some references & homages fans would get to know.

    The previous Teen Titans did have a movie. Teen Titans in Tokyo. It's the only time you ever see Robin actually take his mask off.

    Young Justice would be better to make into a movie. Oh yeah and did that article actually say in theaters? Even the Tokyo movie was made for TV/direct to video. That could of been a theatrical release, the movie was actually kinda good. But Teen Titans Go? I can't really see this as a direct to video release. How are they going to make a movie out of this?

    The sad part is that animated films, like actual 2D animation, have been kinda rare in the past few years. This thing flops, it could kill any chance for any animated movie to make it into theaters in the future. As it is most animated movies are already going direct to video. Look at all the animated DC movies. I don't think a single one has been in theaters since Mask of the Phantasm. And DC has made some pretty consistently good animated movies and now suddenly Teen Titans Go of all things gets to be released in theaters? Why. Out of all the movies they've reader in the past any one of them would have been better. Even a Killing Joke which I think is the worst movie I've seen would be 100 times better than whatever Teen Titans Go can crap out.

    And I don't even hate Teen Titans Go that much. To me it's just an over exadgerated version of the original Teen Titans. It's fine for what it is. I much prefer Young Justice not this goofy thing. But it's a series of shorts where nothing ever really happens. A series most people tend to hate. How the hell does that get green lit for a theatrical movie? Shows like this have been adapted into films before, Looney Toons for example, but they were actually popular, they were part of an established brand that would draw people into theaters and fill seats. Plus those cartoons were so old when they got movies that even adults grew up with them and had a nostalgia factor. But this is a series of shorts with minimal chance of drawing an audience into theaters.

    It's not that Peter can only do one voice, it's that the people doing the casting only want him as Optimus Prime. It's not like he can't do Ironhide anymore they just didn't like his take for the movie version. G1 Ironhide was kind of a red neck and I don't think that voice would fit the movie version. None of his other characters have really even been in Transformers since G1 so he hasn't had much of an opportunity to voice anyone other than Optimus.

    Also I think Ironhide is pretty damn close to how he speaks normally. He doesn't go around sounding like Optimus Prime all the time and I think than is one of the most difficult voices for him to do. So if he can still manage that then he shouldn't have any issues with his other characters.

    I swear to god the next person who says Teamfourstar needs to be in something to "fix it" goes straight to the ignore list. I'm tired of reading this idolization.

    Basically, they're overblown caricatures of themselves.

    The original show was great, but this... I just can't get into it; it's too goofy and kiddie-like for me. Part of my dislike is the fact that it's on ALL THE TIME. The original, more serious show never got that much air time and neither did any of the other credible superhero toons on the CN: Justice League/JLU, Young Justice, etc. If you missed those shows, you were SOL, but TTG replays 5 times a day, at least. Perhaps I'm just carrying a grudge from how poorly the other, MUCH better superhero shows were marketed, or the lack thereof.

    I wonder if this movie will fail, considering the fate of the Powerpuff Girls movie and My Little Pony bombing recently as well.

    "Average business" sounds more accurate than "Bombing."

    New Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Plot Details Revealed

    "It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously super villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!"


    Hottest Hollywood director?

    He may get parodied anyway.
