A New DC Super Hero Girls Movie Coming in May

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games

I enjoyed watching the first DC Super Hero Girls original animated movie, Hero of the Year, so I’m glad to hear another one will be coming. This franchise, aimed at and starring young women, is a breath of fresh air, and I’m glad to see heroes like Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, and many others working together in the “hero school” setting.

That Super Hero High environment allows for a bunch of cameos and supporting characters, which are fun. Plus, DC Super Hero Girls allows kids interested in media-focused characters something with those characters — including Harley Quinn and Katana — that’s suitable for their age group.

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games will be available on DVD (list price $19.99) on May 23, with an earlier digital release on May 9. Here’s the trailer and plot description:

Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, and Katana square off against Korugar Academy in the Intergalactic Games, but trouble is in the air as Lena Luthor takes advantage of the gathering of the Supers to enact her villainous plan. It’s up to the DC Super Hero Girls to fight the forces of evil and protect their school. With Wonder Woman’s strength, Supergirl’s speed, Batgirl’s strategic knowledge, Poison Ivy’s ability to make things grow, Harley Quinn’s energy, Bumblebee’s ability to shrink, and Katana’s fearless personality… anything is possible.

What that summary doesn’t tell you is that the Super Hero High team will be facing off against Jack Kirby’s Female Furies, part of his New Gods creation. I never expected to see Lashina in this movie! The DVD will also include, as a special feature, the music video for the song “That’s My Girl” by girl group Fifth Harmony. Both the DVD and the digital release include these seven animated shorts.

  • New Beginnings
  • Hero of the Month: Supergirl
  • Batgirl vs. Supergirl
  • Quinn-tessential Harley
  • Doubles Trouble
  • Franken-Ivy
  • Dude, Where’s My Invisible Jet

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games features some of the top voice actors in the industry. Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Mae Whitman (Batgirl), Teala Dunn (Bumblebee), and Stephanie Sheh (Katana) join forces to portray the youthful versions of some of the world’s best known superheroes. Cecilia Aranovich Hamilton directs from a script by Shea Fontana.

    Awesome! I got my great nieces the first movie before Christmas and they loved it so much they got toys of the characters afterwards. Which led me to loaning them my Supergirl, then Flash season DVDs and they are now huge fans. (I want to try to get the TPBs of the tv related comics for all the shows too)

  • I think your nieces are the ideal success story for the DC Super Hero Girls brand. :)

  • I’m certainly not the target for the DC Superhero Girls line (31 and male) but I really, really love the design of the characters and what it’s doing for girls relating to superheroes. I even have a few of the toys. :D However, several of my friends who have daughters have introduced their kids to DC though Superhero Girls and they all seem to love it. It’s a great thing DC has done here, I hope it continues for a long time.

    I’ve not seen any of the animated films yet. May have to check them out.

    Yeah they really love the cartoon especially, and they watch the live action shows with their parents. Their mom, my niece, has become obsessed with the Flash show especially. I keep meaning to see if they ever collected the web comics based on the show or not as I think she’d love that.
