Second DC Super Hero Girls Lego Movie Coming This Spring
DC Super Hero Girls are a bonafide phenomenon, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve expanded into toys and DVDs, including an animated version of them as Lego toys, Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain. That movie must have done well, since there’s now another coming out.
After a mysterious school opens across the street, the students of Super Hero High find themselves up against a new threat. Now, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, and the rest of the DC Super Hero Girls not only have to worry about the well-being of their grades, but the safety and security of friends, family, and the rest of civilization. The girls must figure out how to put a stop to this evil, new cross-town rival and save the world once again!
Judging from the trailer, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Frost, Catwoman, Cheetah, and someone I think is Lashina (if she’s now a redhead) decide to go across the street to new school Uber High, but they risk being turned into super-villains.
The LEGO® DC Super Hero Girls voice cast returns its core cast with Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Teala Dunn (Bumblebee), Stephanie Sheh (Katana), and Ashlyn Selich (Batgirl). The cast also includes Yvette Nicole Brown (Amanda Waller), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Romi Dames (Lena Luthor), John DiMaggio (Gorilla Grodd, Wildcat), Josh Keaton (The Flash), Khary Payton (Cyborg), and Meredith Salenger (Lashina).
Elsa Garagarza (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny) directs from a script by Jeremy Adams (Justice League Action, Lego Scooby-Doo!).
There are six animated shorts included as special features:
- Crazed and Confused
- Need for Speed
- Trading Places
- Wonder Waitress
If you missed out on the first movie, and you’re willing to wait five months, there’s a joint DVD release of the two films coming in October.
