DVD Review: LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain

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.

LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain was dircted by Todd Grimes from a script by Jeremy Adams. The voice cast returns its core cast in Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Teala Dunn (Bumblebee) and Stephanie Sheh (Katana), with Ashlyn Selich joining the group (as Batgirl). The cast also includes Yvette Nicole Brown (Amanda Waller), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Romi Dames (Lena Luthor), John DiMaggio (Gorilla Grodd, Wildcat), Jennifer Hale (Mad Harriet), Josh Keaton (Flash), Tom Kenny (Gordon), Rachael MacFarlane (Artemiz), Mona Marshall (Eclipso), Khary Payton (Cyborg) and Meredith Salenger (Lashina).

Missing memories provide an intriguing mystery for everyone’s favorite young female protagonists in the all-new animated film. When Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Bumblebee and Katana suddenly realize they cannot remember a single moment from their Monday at Super Hero High, the young DC Super Heroes spring into sleuthing action! Suspecting foul-play, they band together to retrace their steps and uncover the mystery of who exactly stole their memories – and what nefarious plan might be afoot?

The DC Super Hero Girls are back and this time they’re all in LEGO form where they have to deal with some serious Brain Drain. The central characters in this new adventure are Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Batgirl who are suffering from memory loss and something happens that gets them in a little hot water with Principal Amanda Waller, Gorilla Grodd and others. The catch is, there’s a super villain behind all of this chaos who uses a few of the super hero girls to do a little evil bidding. Once Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Batgirl discover what has actually happened, they come up with a plan to make things right. The trio have to battle it out with their friends Bumblebee and Katana (and Flash) who are under the control of a couple of sinister super villains. They battle it out and ultimately find a way to free their friends and defeat this latest sinister threat.

The packaging comes with a slipcover. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, an image and specs. The DVD disc features the brand logo and Wonder Woman. 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, LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain was a fun watch that features some of DC’s most popular female superheroes and villains. This third entry in the DC Super Hero Girls movie franchise unites two extremely popular brands – LEGO and DC Entertainment and I love it when our favorite characters get the LEGO treatment. The animation style is great and looks a little different from the other DC properties that have gotten the LEGO treatment. The story was good innocent fun and the characters where all interesting. These characters were developed with girls 6-12 in mind and delivers exciting storylines featuring strong females that embraces and celebrates girls as they discover their own unique abilities. This first ever LEGO DC Super Hero Girls adventure flies onto DVD on August 8th and will make a really good watch for the kiddos.
