Last month we provided you with the first images from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's latest animated feature, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, based on the 1984 four-issue storyline appearing in Tales of the Teen Titans by comics royalty Marv Wolfman and George Perez.
Now, new details on the looming Blu-ray release provide us with a piercing glimpse of all the goodies inside this direct-to-video offering when it strikes Digital HD on April 4 and Blu-ray and DVD on April 18.
"Teen Titans: The Judas Contract pays homage to one of the truly legendary story arcs in DC's Teen Titan series, one that fans have been requesting for years, so we are excited to release a film that should surpass their expectations," said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment vice president. "We are thrilled to deliver this complex and exhilarating story that tests the bonds between all members of the Teen Titans to both longstanding and new fans of all generations."
Here's the official press release:
Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil; but their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.
Christina Ricci and the late Miguel Ferrer join the already-established Teen Titans voice cast as Terra and Deathstroke, respectively. Returning Titans actors include Sean Maher as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Jake T. Austin as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren as Starfire, and Stuart Allan as Robin/Damian. Gregg Henry voices the villainous Brother Blood.
