I must admit that I still have quite a few DC superhero movies to watch, but I really enjoyed this cute animation through the home premiere screening provided by Warner Bros. UK who are celebrating the digital release of the movie.
Co-written by Jared Stern and John Whittington, the movie marks Stern’s directorial debut. DC League of Super-Pets is largely based on the characters from DC’s Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The story is cute and funny, with a few jokes that only adults or die-hard DC fans will understand. We meet Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman who are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a shelter pack—Ace the hound 🐕, PB the potbellied pig 🐷, Merton the turtle 🐢 and Chip the squirrel 🐿—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes. 🦸🏼♀️
In between last-minute shopping for our wedding, delayed flights, and a lot of stress, I’ve really enjoyed this light and fun movie along my husband. Even if you’re not yet caught up with the DC movies (like us) or not at all familiar with the DC world, you can still enjoy this movie, and it’s perfect for the entire family. Voiced by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, and Diego Luna, the movie is fresh and colourful, with a nice soundtrack and an ending that leaves space for at least one sequel if not a full franchise.
Krypto: [after Ace arrives] You’re late.
Ace: Sorry. Me and the Dark Knight were playing a little bit of fetch. [pulls out a Superman chew toy]
Ace: Have you met “Chew-perman”?
Krypto: So disrespectful.
Ace: Y’all started it.
For some reason, for me, it’s enough to hear Dwayne Johnson’s and Kevin Hart’s voices to laugh. I blame Jumanji.
You can buy or rent DC League of Super-Pets now.
Thank you again Warner Bros. UK for the opportunity to watch the home premiere of DC League of Super-Pets. 🏼
