Once upon a time : Krypto, Superman’s super dog, faces a huge challenge: rescuing his master, kidnapped by Lex Luthor and his evil guinea pig Lulu. For this he will have to team up with a bunch of good-hearted but rather clumsy animals.
The French voices of Krypto and the Super Beasts
In the original version, Dwayne Johnson (Krypto), Kevin Hart (Ace), John Krasinski (Superman), Keanu Reeves (Batman), Kate McKinnon (Lulu), Diego Luna (Chip), Natasha Lyonne (Merton) and Marc Maron ( Lex Luthor) lend their voices to the heroes of Krypto and the Super Beasts.
On the French side, Muriel Robin voices Lulu the hairless guinea pig, Soprano is Chip the timid squirrel, while Denis Brogniart, trying his hand at dubbing for the first time, is the voice of Lex Luthor.
David Krüger, Dwayne Johnson’s official dub, voices Krypto, Christophe Peyroux is Bat-Dog Ace, while Adrien Antoine, French dub of the Dark Knight in video games and animated films, dubs the character.
• What they will love: Krypto and the Super Beasts is a real superhero movie. Directed by Jared Stern (screenwriter of The LEGO Batman and LEGO Ninjago movies) and Sam Levine (screenwriter of The Farm Rebels), the feature film reveals Superman’s private life.
From his hasty departure from the planet Krypton to his courtship of journalist Loïs Lane and his love of TV nights spent with his dog in front of cookery shows…
Packed with references to DC movies, Krypto and the Super-Animals honors pets and proves that even the greatest heroes need a friend to count on.
Combining funny scenes, moving passages and action scenes worthy of a live film, the feature film will make young viewers experience a great moment without leaving the older ones behind, especially thanks to the presence of various flashes.
A film along the lines of the successful animated film Beasts of Illumiation but with super animals. Fun little wink for moviegoers, Kevin Hart lent his voice to the dwarf rabbit Snowball in Like Beasts and double ace in Krypto and the Super-Animals.
• What may worry them: However, several scenes may worry the youngest. During her transformation into a superheroine, Lulu sets fire to the pet store, leaving her comrades behind despite the fire that breaks out.
On the other hand, during a memorable scene, the super animals have to face a cute ginger kitten in Lulu’s salary. Despite appearances, the latter is a real weapon of war. If the scene will entertain the older ones, especially because of the cute voice of the kitten, who is actually trying to eliminate the heroes, it may frighten the younger ones.
In a touching scene, Ace tells his story to Krypto. The latter was abandoned by his family when he was still a puppy. A touching scene that is sure to bring a few tears to your eyes, yet reminds us that animals are not toys.
• What they want to keep inside them: The impression of having seen a great superhero movie with endearing, funny and touching characters who have all their faults and fears, but still manage to overcome them.
If Krypto, the super dog, has already had the honor of an animated series of 2 seasons in 2005, it is the first time that a cinema is dedicated to him.
Superman’s animal has the same powers as his master and the same weakness (kryptonite), but when the latter loses his abilities, he will seek help from a group of abandoned animals that have just gained powers.
If until now Krypto despised Ace and his friends, he will gradually understand the importance of friendship and learn that we always need someone to share good times and bad times with.
At first, the dog, the hero of Metropolis, has an exclusive relationship with his master Superman and does not understand that he is leaving him in favor of Loïs. Through the movie, Krypto will gradually realize that we can love each other without doing everything together. A lesson that will speak to children.
Real DC Heroes
In the DC Universe, Krypto appears for the first time in issue 210 ofAdventure comics (March 1955). Sent into space by Jor-El, Krypto arrives on Earth after Kal-El (future Superman) and is then adopted by Superboy. In the animated film, Krypto arrives at the same time as young Kal-El and grows up alongside him.
Ace, on the other hand, is a sarcastic dog who has spent most of his life in a shelter. If he plays hard, the latter will gradually reveal himself and let his feelings show through. Kind of like his future master, Batman.
First appeared in 1955 in the comics Batman #92, Bat-Hound Ace is Batman and Robin’s canine partner and fights crime with them.
The DC hero dogs now have their feature film.
