Discovery Family has acquired the US rights to the 26-episode series, Dream Defenders, from Tiny Island Productions. The series follows 14-year-old twins Zoey and Zane Mercer through their dual dimension adventures—in both the ‘Realworld’ of Meridian, and the fantastical universes of the ‘Dreamworld’.
The movie is very entertaining, but it’s far more entertaining for adults than children. Riley is eleven, and I wouldn’t recommend this movie for kids under eight, due to a variety of fairly heavy and depressing things that happen. Yes, there’s a happy ending, but things get slow and sad more than once.
Damian Wayne, now bearing the mantle of Robin, blazes a headstrong and sometimes reckless trail alongside his father, Batman. While investigating a crime scene, Robin encounters a mysterious figure, Talon, who leads him on a life-altering course through the depths of Gotham’s secret society, known as The Court of Owls. It’s a dangerous journey that will force Batman and Robin to face their most dangerous adversary – each other!
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League must band together as they face off against warmongering Orm, an army of sea creatures, otherworldly weapons and perilous odds. In this all-new epic adventure from the DC Universe, mankind’s only hope of escaping from the darkness lies with the guiding light of a man – Aquaman!
True Confession: I don’t know much about the comic and have never read it, but I’m a total animation fangirl of the highest order, so it’s animated, I figured I kind of wanted to see it. But what interested me the most was that the hubs was interested in the movie. We have no little kids around at the moment, so him wanting to see an animated movie (one of my areas of, as stated, major fangirl interest, but not his) was a little shocking.
Him liking it as much as I did was more so.
