TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE WHEN LEGO® DC SUPER HEROES: THE FLASH!
NOW ON BLU-RAY COMBO PACK & DVD
The Flash’s world spins out of control when his arch-nemesis Reverse-Flash puts the Scarlet Speedster into a vicious time loop in LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash, the latest animated film from Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and The LEGO Group.
In LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash, Reverse-Flash manipulates the Speed Force to put The Flash into a time loop that forces him to relive the same day over and over again – with progressively disastrous results, including losing his powers and being fired by the Justice League. The Flash must find a way to restore time to its original path and finally apprehend his worst enemy before all is lost for The Flash … and the world!
Along the route, The Flash encounters numerous new characters being introduced to the popular DC Super Heroes series, including The Atom; B’dg, a squirrel-esque Green Lantern; a pair of legendary super pets in Ace the Bat-Hound and Krypto the Super-Dog, Batman and Superman’s faithful canine pals; as well as Aquaman’s trusted seahorse, Storm.
LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash also features an original song, “It’s Magic,” written by Tim Kelly and Jeremy Adams, and performed with enthusiastic zest by the trio of The Flash (voiced by James Arnold Taylor), Zatanna (Kate Micucci) and Doctor Fate (Kevin Michael Richardson).
The cast of LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash features some of the top voiceover artists in the industry, led by the aforementioned Taylor, Micucci and Richardson, along with Troy Baker (Batman), Nolan North (Superman, Killer Croc), Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman, Lois Lane), Dwight Schultz (Reverse-Flash), Eric Bauza (The Atom, B’dg, Jimmy Olsen), Tom Kenny (Plastic Man, The Penguin), Phil LaMarr (Firestorm), Khary Payton (Cyborg), Vanessa Marshall (Poison Ivy), Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Boomerang, Aquaman), Jason Spisak (The Joker) and Audrey Wasilewski (Mayor).
LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash is directed by Ethan Spaulding from a script by Jim Krieg and Jeremy Adams. Sam Register, Brandon Vietti, Jason Cosler, Robert Fewkes and Jill Wilfert are executive producers. Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are co-executive producers.
The movie starts out at the Justice League headquarters with Superman, Batman, Ace the bat hound, Cyborg, and others, but not with The Flash. The Joker starts causing trouble in the city and the Justice League members respond to try to stop him, and they all keep saying "Where's The Flash?" The Flash's alarm goes off at 8am, and he runs through the city and helps a bunch of people. Then he decides to go get donuts and then finally, checks his phone!
The Flash gets stuck in a time loop where everyday keeps repeating itself because of the Reverse Flash. The Flash gets some help from Dr. Fate to get out of the time loop and learn about the speed force. I don't want to give away anymore that happens. As I love most all Lego movies, and this one was good too! Take an afternoon or evening, snuggle up with your children, and check out the LEGO DC "Super Heroes: The Flash" on Blu-Ray, DVD, or Digital, or purchase a combo pack!
