With the help of an ancient Kryptonian power, Lex Luthor unites the world’s Super-Villains to capture all of Earth’s Super Heroes, until … only the DC Super Hero Girls are left to stop the Legion of Doom. Our heroes must cross dimensions to rescue their fellow Super Heroes from the Phantom Zone, but a fortuitous wrong turn leads them to Titans Tower – where they find much-needed allies in the Teen Titans. The young Super Heroes discover their combined strength – and usual comic relief – are essential to save the day in this blockbuster event!

Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem In The Multiverse comes to Blu-Ray with a vibrant 1080p transfer. All of the colors present in this transfer are practically leaping off the screen with the wide range of striking hues permeating the frame. This is not a surprise, as both properties are both lighter, brighter and more kid-friendly than some of the more mature DC titles we have been getting recently. An area where the film shines is the unique quality to the character designs. The small touches that are added to each hero add a lot to them. These animators obviously put great care into each environment which shines through here. The textures, including the character designs and the environments, are extremely impressive and give the crossover a real sense of depth. The animation style does have some rough line edges, but this does not appear to be an issue with the transfer. Black levels are very strong with no hint of compression artifacts or digital anomalies of the sort. There is some slight banding when faced with harsher gradients. This Blu-Ray presentation is a winner.
This release boasts a DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track that more than gets the job done. While there are some altercations, this is a more quippy, dialogue-driven affair that does not demand too much. This dialogue is often accompanied by some peppy music or all manner of sound effects, but all of the information comes through clearly without getting muddied. The track engages all of the channels with panning effects and unique environmental sounds that really makes you feel like you are transported to these worlds. There is a decent amount of activity in the low-end during moments of action, but this is not a focus for the story. Warner Bros. has really delivered with this one. This disc provides English SDH, French and Spanish subtitles.
- Additional Episodes: As an added bonus, Warner has provided three episodes from the two shows for the first time on Blu-Ray. The episodes themselves are fun and look great, leaving you wishing that the complete seasons would be put out on the format. Hopefully a complete series Blu-Ray set materializes after these shows wrap up.
- DC Super Hero Girls – “#SmallVictories” (11:26) (S2E20)
- Teen Titans Go! – “Titan Saving Time” (11:13) (S4E15)
- Teen Titans Go! – “Operation Tin Man” (11:04) (S2E45)
Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem In The Multiverse is a sneaky crossover that promises more of the former than we actually get, but the meta-humor and decently endearing characters should keep you mostly entertained throughout. The film is a bit messy and chaotic, but this is in line with the tone of these light and amusing series. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has served up a top notch A/V presentation and some fun extra episodes to make this set even more worthwhile. If you are a fan of either of these shows, this is a solid addition to your collection. Recommended
Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem In The Multiverse is currently available to purchase on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital.
