Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (2017)

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (2017): adapted by Ernie Altbacker from the graphic novel by Marv Wolfman and George Perez; directed by Sam Liu; starring the voices of Stuart Allan (Damian Wayne), Jake T. Austin (Blue Beetle), Taissa Farmiga (Raven), Sean Maher (Dick Grayson), Christina Ricci (Tara), Brandon Soo Hoo (Beast Boy), Kari Wahlgren (Starfire), Miguel Ferrer (Deathstroke), and Gregg Henry (Brother Blood):

Enjoyable DC Animated film adapts the 1980's Teen Titans story arc The Judas Contract with a few character additions and subtractions mostly centered around the addition of Bruce Wayne's son Damian as Robin (with the original Robin here too as Nightwing) and the baffling newish Blue Beetle. 

Beast Boy's pursuit of new Teen Titan Tara/Terra now plays a lot like sexual harassment and stalking, and really needed to be toned down for a contemporary audience. Kevin Smith (voice) cameos as himself. Lightly recommended.
