Huh, I missed this from tonight's episode.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

So it's getting a movie next summer.

Greg Cipes and Tara Strong posted about it, so this is looking to be true. What a short turnaround, then.

I wonder what they'll do to extend a runtime appropriate for a theater.

It's more popular than its other incarnation on CN, so I'm not that surprised. Happy for fans of the show. I won't seek it out in theaters, but I'll give it a watch when it inevitably airs on CN.



Really sucks the original never got this much hype though. Stuff like this is a bit sad though, because it justifies them isolating the action shows.

Checking the ratings for Teen Titans Go, the ratings aren't anywhere near enough to suggest a theatrical release would be profitable. Unless they get so cheap that they just staple 8 episodes together and call that a movie.

Considering how cheap the show's animation is, I don't see it needing a big budget. I wouldn't be surprised if it only cost like $10-20 mill before advertising.

I do wonder if it's going to be a soft reboot like the Ninjago movie apparently is, though.

The ratings have been dropping on this for a while. I'm surprised they're not trying to slowly fade it out like everything else.

I still believe that some CN exec has a weird obsession over TTG!, and that's why they keep marathoning the show when theoretically, they make less money from its commercials than they would other cartoons because it's not a Cartoon Network original. That's why they shafted previous DC shows, and why they cancelled the original TT in favor of making Ben 10 so they could profit from that series.

I'll admit that I don't check the ratings as often, but from what I can tell, TTG is still CN's biggest hit, and the main reason it's having a ratings slump is because the channel in general is. Nick's been on decline for years, but they didn't phase out SpongeBob because of it.

Even during TTG's prime, the ratings difference between other shows was only a couple hundred thousand instead of over a million viewers.

Let's not forget that right now we're using TV ratings, which are becoming a lot more dated in the wake of cord cutting. I don't know what the online stats are for Teen Titans Go are for CN's app/website, but judging by how hard Cartoon Network has been pushing both I'm starting to think unlike other cable networks, they're among the few that have seen the writing on the wall for cable and are adjusting to Internet viewings accordingly.

You can't gauge the success of a television show based on ratings alone anymore. Like Peanutbutter said, streaming stats are more important these days, not to mention there are toy sales and advertising interests to factor in. Regardless, I don't expect the TTG! movie to do well for the same reasons Ninjago didn't - kids don't have much incentive to see the movie in theaters when they can watch the show at home and wait for it to stream, and parents will have no interest in seeing the movie themselves.

That's the thing. I have seen no evidence of TTG having enough of an internet footprint to justify a movie doing well. Sure, you can say streaming stats are important, but that's like if Disney saw the value in those Spider-Man/Elsa videos that get tens of millions of views and thought that was an incentive to make a Frozen MCU film. Besides, there's a difference between letting your kid fiddle with your iPad and watch cartoons and actually paying $20 (not including popcorn) to let them watch the same thing in theaters. That's what that one CEO failed to consider when he thought the Oogieloves film would do as well as the Teletubbies show.
