It’s been a while since DC has come out with a truly good stand-alone animated feature. Although, some of them have been a pretty fun watch such as ‘Teen Titans: The Judas Contract’, there have been some disappointing ones as well such as ‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslight’. It seems such a long time now, but ever since DC started releasing these stand-alone original animated features straight to DVD, the number and quality of truly memorable films has reduced.
Teen Titans premiered in 2003 when the DC Animated Universe was still going strong with the Justice League. In Sam Register’s (Current President of Warner Bros Animation) words, the show was initially conceived as a children oriented show; primarily targeted at 7 and 8 year olds. The show however, evolved into so much more than that. So much so that, in spite of Teen Titans Go’s recent success, die-hard fans of the original series are still clamouring for a revival.
So what made fans fall in love with this show ?
