Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is an upcoming theatrical feature film based on the Teen Titans Go! series.
The film was confirmed on Monday, September 25, 2017 by Warner Bros. The animated feature is scheduled to debut in theaters on July 27, 2018.
It seems that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans that is! 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!

- This is the first ever feature film of the series.
- This is the first animated Teen Titans movie to hit theaters.
- This is also the first ever Teen Titans movie in general to hit theaters. The previous Teen Titans films (Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, Justice League vs. Teen Titans and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) were all direct-to-DVD releases.
- Attendees at VidCon had the choice to see the movie before it hit theaters at an advance screening on June 22, 2018.
- This will be the third theatrical film with a wide release to be based on a Cartoon Network series after The Powerpuff Girls Movie (2002) and The LEGO Ninjago Movie (2017).
- This is the thirty-fifth animated television series to be adapted into a feature movie. The previous ones were Thomas and Friends, SpongeBob SquarePants, Rugrats, Wild Thornberrys, Hey Arnold!, The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Regular Show, The Simpsons, South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head, The Flintstones, Yogi-Bear, The Jetsons, DuckTales, Phineas and Ferb, The Proud Family, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Teacher's Pet, Goof Troop, Transformers, Batman: The Animated Series, Heathcliff, Doug, Recess, Babar, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, Arthur, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Caillou, Woody Woodpecker, Peter Rabbit, and My Little Pony.
- The movie's first official trailer was dropped on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
- Slade has been referenced and even made cameos throughout the Teen Titans Go! series. However, this movie will mark his speaking debut.
- With that being said, this might be because many people were adamant to get Slade to appear on Teen Titans Go! and were very disappointed by the outcome of "The Return of Slade".
- Will Arnett is the voice of Slade. He is replacing Slade's original voice actor, Ron Perlman, for the role.
- This is the second theatrical 2D animated superhero movie in 25 years after Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993), if one doesn't count Batman: The Killing Joke (2017).
- This is the first fully 2D animated film to be produced by Warner Animation Group, as all of the company's previous films used computer generated (CG) animation.
- This also marks Warner Bros.' return to 2D animated theatrical films. Warner Bros. had its original feature animation division, which produced 2D animated films.
- This will be Wonder Woman's, Superman's, Green Lantern's (or John Stewart's), and Batman's first speaking role in the Teen Titans Go! universe.
- When the teaser trailer was released, it received negative reviews by viewers (specifically by people who dislike the Teen Titans Go! series), having 13K dislikes and only 8.3K likes on Warner Bros. YouTube channel.
- However, the final trailer was much more well-received by both fans and people who dislike the show, with 5.4K likes against 979 dislikes (as of May 1, 2018) on the Warner Bros. YouTube channel.
- John Stewart's design in this film is slightly different then his design shown in the series (ep. "Real Boy Adventures"). In the series, he had a bit of facial hair but in the movie, he is clean cut and appears to have a more muscular build along with having a slightly different suit then what he was seen wearing in the series.
- In the second trailer, the song Thunder by Imagine Dragons plays in the background.
- Batman will be voiced by Jimmy Kimmel, marking his first ever speaking role in any Teen Titans Go! media.
- This is the very first Theatrical Warner Bros. Film to rely solely on Flash Animation instead of Traditional Animation, or CGI Animation.
- Alfred apparently starred in his own movie which the Titans are excited about seeing.
- During the two part episode "Kabooms", viewers got special sneak peeks of the movie.
- Issue #57, "Falling Stars", of the Teen Titans Go! comic series and the second part to the episode special, "Kabooms", is based on the movie's plot.
- On July 13, 2018, the film got nominated for an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Short Form Animated Program".
- Starfire's affection for cats is shown.
- The episode "Waffles" is indirectly referenced when Slade asks if the Titans will annoy him with waffles and we see Beast Boy and Cyborg holding them before dropping them once Slade asks his question.
- Alfred's "butler-styled" combat as shown in his movie trailer is a callback to the way he fought numerous Gotham villains in "Mo' Money Mo' Problems".
- The Titans don't recognize Slade despite Robin mentioning him in "The Return of Slade" and referencing him several times in the series.
- Robin's "baby hands", first revealed in the episode with the same name, are seen again.
- Cyborg shooting meatballs is a callback to "Meatball Party".
- In the first trailer, the Titans (excluding Robin) were dressed up as Wonder Woman. The Wonder Woman costumes the Titans wore were based on Wonder Woman's costume from the live action version played by Gal Gadot.
- Also, the Titans saying how much they love Wonder Woman and how she was what people wanted to see could be a reference to both how successful the live action solo Wonder Woman movie was, and how most other DC movies aren't as well-received in comparison.
- To add on, Jade Wilson is a movie director. With that being said, she could be a reference to Patty Jenkins; the woman who directed Wonder Woman.
- There are several buildings in Jump City seen in the first trailer that references other characters and things in the DC universe:
- There is a building named Ace Chemicals, which has the same name as the business organization that appears in the Batman comics.
- There is a bakery called Sinestro LLS and Buns, which references a DC Supervillain.
- There is a make up shop called Apokolips and Lashes with Darkseid on the logo.
- A building named The Rorshack, which is a reference to the DC character Rorschach (Watchmen).
- Unlike her usual classic costume in the series, Wonder Woman wears a costume similar to the design the Titans were seen wearing in the trailer, which is the design Wonder Woman wore in the 2017 live action Wonder Woman film.
- The third teaser poster to the film parodies a teaser poster for Justice League (2017 film).
- The Titans mistake Slade as Deadpool (Wade Wilson), who is a Marvel Comics character. This is probably a reference to the fact that Deadpool was created as a parody of Slade, which is further evidenced when Slade says he was "created first."
- Alternatively, this could be a joke among fans who share the same belief that Slade and Deadpool are related due to both of them having the same last name.
- In one of the trailers, the Titans are shown at a movie theater watching a preview of an "upcoming" Batman movie. The artstyle used for the Batman portion of the preview was based on the animation from Batman: The Animated Series.
- In one of the sneak peeks premiered on Cartoon Network, the song "Take On Me" by A-ha is heard in the background when the Titans are driving the Time-Cycles.
- The Titans mistaking Slade as Deadpool every time they interact.
