Teen Titans Go! has always been a very ambitious show, but this season the creative team is taking things to another level. Next month the series will debut "The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine and Became Dark Even Though It Was the Day," a four-part special based on Cyborg recurring favorite song "The Night Begins to Shine," featuring special guest stars Fall Out Boy.
So, how'd this special episode get so massive? SYFY WIRE's Ernie Estrella caught up with producer Aaron Horvath and director Peter Rida Michail to learn all about it. Plus Beast Boy himself, Greg Cipes, gave us a little peek at his voice-acting roots.
"We absolutely wanted to revisit that world [of 'The Night Begins to Shine'] after the first time we did," Horvath said. "And when we were talking to the network about Season 4 they were like 'What are some special event things that you guys would like to do?' And they've got wish-list stuff, and on our wish list was like 'Oh, we wanna do like a big direct-to-TV movie, essentially, of 'The Night Begins to Shine.'"
Speaking about the event's music, Michail revealed that even in that department the show has outdone itself this time.
"This was a different beast, man," he said. "They wrote this four-parter for this song, and even reached out to B.E.R. and asked them to write a couple more, and reached out to Fall Out Boy and asked them to cover it."
Speaking about how he developed his voice-acting talents, Cipes revealed that he has his roots in voices because of all the prank calls he made as a child.
"I love messing with people," he said.
As for how that played out ... well, you should just hear it from him.
