Check Out the Trailer for the Upcoming DC Super Hero Girls Animated Feature Film

Get your capon?

DC Super Hero Girls has been hugely popular, offering animated shorts, toys, and apparel celebrating DC’s female heroes while making them relatable to a young audience. Now, they’re adding to the DC Super Hero Girls mythos with their first animated feature length film! Check out the trailer above!

Hero of the Year, coming to DVD and Digital HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, finds our young heroines — Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Katana, and Poison Ivy — fighting with the likes of villains like Eclipso (who seems to be female in this film!) and Dark Opal. Classic “light vs. dark” stuff with young girls in mind. Though hey, I’m not a girl, but I love the hell out of this universe and will totally be checking this out. I’m not ashamed!

I’ve gotta say that it always weirds me out a little to hear Wonder Woman referred to as, well, Wonder Woman in this when she’s a kid. They couldn’t have gone with Wonder Girl? Diana did have that name at one point before it got passed on. Just sayin’.

Names aside, this film looks super-fun. In addition to the film, the DVD will feature six additional animated shorts and spotlights on Wonder Woman, Bumblebee, and Poison Ivy.

According to Newsarama, Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing, is thrilled to be furthering the DC Super Hero Girls canon, saying, “We’re excited to bring DC Super Hero Girls to life and create an immersive world to help inspire young women like never before. These characters were developed with girls 6-12 in mind and will deliver epic story lines featuring strong females. It truly embraces and celebrates girls as they discover their own unique abilities.”

Hero of the Year will be available in Digital HD August 9th, and will be coming to DVD August 23rd. Get your cape on! (Sorry. Couldn’t help myself. I think this nearly every time I hear the theme song.)
