Teen Titans Go! See Space Jam will air on Father’s Day Weekend, with the Teen Titans offering hilarious commentary on Space Jam, in Mystery Science Theater 3000 style. In other words, we’ll be watching the Teen Titans watching the movie, and listening to their commentary.
Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg and Beast Boy will be hosting a viewing party of the 1996 original movie starring basketball legend Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes characters.
In Teen Titans Go! See Space Jam, the Teen Titans are visited by the Nerdlucks, the iconic Space Jam villains who tried to capture Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes.
The 80-minute special’s synopsis reads:
“Astonished to discover his fellow Titans have never seen Space Jam, Cyborg organizes an exclusive watch party. Of course, if the Titans are watching a movie, don’t expect silence to be golden. Raven and Starfire provide the commentary, Cyborg presents the fun facts, Beast Boy points out the butt shots, and Robin… well, Robin doesn’t trust their new alien friends. Are the Nerdlucks here to attend an innocent watch party, or do they have more sinister motives up their sleeves?”
The trailer shows the Nerdlucks transforming themselves into the Teen Titans, so they all get cool powers. Except for the one who turns into Robin, who doesn’t have superpowers. As Beast Boy explains, “You got stuck with Robin and he ain’t gots no talent!” Angered by Beast Boy’s insensitive comment, Robin breaks out in dance, only to have everyone cringe at his efforts.
