DVD Review: DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis

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.

DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis features the voice talents of Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Mae Whitman (Batgirl), Teala Dunn (Bumblebee) and Stephanie Sheh (Katana) as they join forces to portray the youthful versions of some of the world’s best known Super Heroes. Cecilia Aranovich Hamilton and Ian Hamilton direct from a script by Shea FontanaJennifer Coyle serves as producer with Sam Register as Executive Producer.

It seems like an uneventful day at school until the powerful Book of Legends is suddenly stolen from Super Hero High. In order to uncover the mystery, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, Bumblebee and the rest of the Super Crew must journey through the depths of the ocean to Atlantis. There, the girls encounter Mera and Siren, the ocean-dwelling thieves, who prove to be a formidable match. In order to recover the stolen tome and return it to its rightful place, DC Super Hero Girls must band together and use their collective powers to successfully get back to land…and back to class!

In this latest animated adventure for the Super Hero Girls, Mera and Siren show up from the sea and end up taking the Book of Legends that allows Siren to unleash her sinister plan to take over Atlantis and beyond. The thing is, Mera wakes up and realizes that she doesn’t agree with what Siren is doing and tries to part ways with her. It doesn’t take long for Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl and the rest of the girl squad to battle it out with Siren and her army of Trench Monsters, but to make matters worse, she also overpowers Aquaman back in Atlantis and takes the Trident of Neptune from him and this gives her even more power. It takes Wonder Woman’s leadership, the help from a new team member (Raven) and Mera’s assistance to go up against Siren where they ultimately come up with a plan to stop her. The team getd Aquaman’s powerful trident back to him as well as take the Book of Legends back to Super Hero High where it’s placed deep into the relic vaults.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, more artwork and specs. The DVD disc features some etched artwork and the brand logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis is another cheesy good entry into this growing animated franchise that’s geared towards girls ages 6-12 in mind and embraces and celebrates them as they discover their own unique abilities. We have the big screen Aquaman movie coming up real soon and this animated adventure is kinda-sorta connected to it because not only are Mera and Siren in this movie but the King of Atlantis also makes an appearance. The story kept things simple and the animation is the familiar style we’re all used to. DC has the best female characters and movies like this allow them to take the lead and have their own adventures. Even though this isn’t the best entry in the DC Super Hero Girls growing arsenal of movies, it’s still an entertaining watch that the younger female audience will enjoy. DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis is now available on DVD and is priced to own.
