Once upon a time : Krypto, Superman’s super-dog, is faced with an immense challenge: to save his master, kidnapped by Lex Luthor and his evil guinea pig Lulu. For this, he will have to team up with a gang of kind-hearted but rather clumsy animals.
The French Voices of Krypto and the Super-Animals
In the original version, Dwayne Johnson (Krypto), Kevin Hart (Ace), John Krasinsky (Superman), Keanu Reeves (Batman), Kate McKinnon (Lulu), Diego Luna (Chips), Natasha Lyonne (Merton) and Marc Maron (Lex Luthor) lend their voices to the heroes of Krypto and the Super Animals.
David KrugerDwayne Johnson’s official voice actor, lends his voice to Krypto, Christophe Peyroux is Ace the Bat-Dog while Adrian AnthonyFrench dubber 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. Staged by Jared Stern (screenwriter of the films lego batman and lego ninjago) and Sam Levine (screenwriter of The Farm rebels), the feature film reveals the private life of Superman.
From his hasty departure from the planet Krypton to his marriage proposal to journalist Loïs Lane and his love for TV evenings spent with his dog in front of cooking shows…
Packed with references to DC films, Krypto and the Super-Animals gives pride of place to 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 spectators experience a great moment without leaving the older ones outdone, in particular thanks to the presence of different winks. .
A film in line with the successful animated film like beasts of Illumination but with super-animals. Fun little wink for moviegoers, Kevin Hart lent his voice to Snowball the dwarf rabbit in Like Beasts and double Ace in Krypto and the Super-Animals.
• What may worry them: However, several scenes can worry the youngest. During her transformation into a superheroine, Lulu sets fire to the pet shop and leaves her companions 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 the pay of Lulu. Despite appearances, the latter is a real weapon of war. If the scene will amuse the older ones, in particular because of the sweet voice of the kitten, who is actually trying to eliminate the heroes, it can scare the youngest.
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 make a few tears flow but nevertheless reminds us that animals are not toys.
• What they will keep inside them: The impression of having seen a great superhero film with endearing, funny and touching characters who have all their faults and fears, but who nevertheless manage to overcome them.
If Krypto, the superdog has already had the honors of a animated series of 2 seasons in 2005, it is the first time that a cinema film 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 band of abandoned animals who have just acquired 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 with whom to share good times and bad times.
Initially the dog, hero of Metropolis, has an exclusive relationship with his master Superman and does not understand that he is abandoning him in favor of Loïs. Throughout the film, 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 animated film, Krypto arrives at the same time as young Kal-El and grows alongside him.
For his part, Ace is a sarcastic dog who has spent most of his life in a shelter. If he plays tough, the latter will gradually reveal himself and let his feelings show through. A bit like his future master, Batman.
