Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
It’s time to get your cape on with the girls at Super Hero High in the all-new animated movie, DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year! Much like other re-imaginings of pop culture figures, Hero of the Year brings together female superheroes and super villains from the DC Comics universe.
Alongside heroes Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Katana we have the likes of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy attending classes with them. It’s a pretty creative concept that works well and brings these strong female characters together for an action-packed animated adventure.
During the week of the annual Hero of the Year awards show, a shape-shifting baddie named Dark Opal creates a cacophony of chaos for our collection of super kids. Together, they must work as a united force to stop Dark Opal and his apocalyptic scheme before he destroys the world and ruins the awards show. Will the girls resolve this crisis before it’s too late?
DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year is an entertaining animated film that showcases Girl Power in all its awesome glory. There are plenty of references and nods to other DC stories and characters, plus look for cameos from the likes of Commissioner Gordon, Lois Lane, Amanda Waller, Hal Jordan (Green Lantern), and The Flash.
Along with the film we get a selection of seven short vignettes revolving around the girls of Super Hero High. They include:
All About Super Hero High
Fall into Super Hero High
Hero of the Month: Poison Ivy
Hero of the Month: Bumblebee
Saving the Day
Hero of the Month: Wonder Woman
For some action-packed, family-friendly, girl-power, superhero fun, I recommend DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year on DVD August 23, 2016!
