DC League of Super Pets (2022)
In the animated action adventure film DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the Superheroes.
Krypto is voiced by Dwayne Johnson (Young Rock, Black Adam, and the voice of Moana’s Maui), while his Jumanji films co-star Kevin Hart (the voice of Snowball in The Secret Life of Pets movies) voices Ace the hound.
The rest of the superpet pack is voiced by Critic Choice Award winner Diego Luna (Andor, The Book of Life) as Chip the squirrel, and Vanessa Bayer (SNL, I Love That For You) and Natasha Lyonne (Show Dogs, Ballmastrz 9009) as PB the potbellied pig and Merton the turtle, with Emmy winner Kate McKinnon (SNL, the Magic School Bus Rides Again films, the voice of Lupe in Ferdinand) as evil hairless guinea pig, Lulu.
The voice cast also includes the likes of John Krasinski, Jemaine Clement, Thomas Middleditch, Ben Schwartz, Olivia Wilde, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jameela Jamil, Maya Erskine, Dascha Polanco, and Keanu Reeves.
Common Sense Media says, “DC corrects their history of making superhero stories too dark, violent, and mature for kids with this animated tale focusing on the heroes’ crime-fighting furry friends. Ideal for elementary school-age kids, these Super-Pets aren’t their parents’ Justice League. And, with comic geniuses Kevin Hart and Kate McKinnon doing most of the lifting in the voice cast, it’s definitely the funniest big-screen DC movie.”
