Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided this movie to for free
Marvel Comics have been receiving a lot of fanfare of late for their superhero movies but did you know that DC Comics has also created a dynamic cinematic universe featuring their characters?  No I'm not talking about the live action Batman vs Superman or Justice League movies! But rather the animated motion pictures in the DC Movie Universe.

 I think these DC film's are just as good as the Marvel ones yet haven't gotten as much attention because they are animated instead of live action and straight to home video releases.  In my opinion though Warner Bros. Animation has created a spectacular DC Movie Universe that aren't run of the mill cartoons for young kids but rather combine stories full of depth with great imagery so as to be appealing for more mature audiences. These movies have ratings from PG to R making some family friendly viewing and others more suitable just for moms and dads to watch. So it is important for parents to check the MPAA ratings on these movies. A new addition to the DC Movie Universe, which is one I'm comfortable letting my tweens watch, is WONDER WOMAN: BLOODLINES.  It is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital.

WONDER WOMAN: BLOODLINES tells the origin story of this iconic DC Comics heroine. In this animated movie, Amazon princess Diana of Themyscira chooses to save fighter pilot Steve Trevor who has crash landed on her hidden island and return him to his home in America. Fulfilling the role of both ambassador as well as protector, Diana soon earns the name Wonder Woman. Equally strong in body, heart and will, she makes it her mission to help a troubled young girl enlisted by a deadly organization known as Villainy, Inc., whose criminal members have their sights set on invading Diana’s paradise home of Themyscira. If you haven't seen a DC Movie Universe presentation yet, WONDER WOMAN: BLOODLINES is a great jumping in point to start viewing this series of films.

WONDER WOMAN: BLOODLINES is rated PG-13 for sequences of fantasy action and violence and some bloody images. It has a runtime of 83 minutes. The movie features a great cast of vocal talents. Rosario Dawson (Jane the Virgin, Rent, Luke Cage) returns as the voice of Wonder Woman for the sixth time in the DC Movie Universe, leading a sensational WONDER WOMAN: BLOODLINES cast voicing characters that includes Jeffrey Donovan (Fargo, Burn Notice) as Steve Trevor, Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100) as Silver Swan, Adrienne C. Moore (Orange Is the New Black) as Etta Candy, Kimberly Brooks (DC Super Hero Girls, Mass Effect, Winx Club) as The Cheetah & Giganta, Courtenay Taylor (Regular Show, Fallout 4) as Dr. Poison, Constance Zimmer (Entourage, House of Cards, Unreal) as Veronica Cale, Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) as Julia Kapatelis, Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Arrow) as Ferdinand, Cree Summer (Batman Beyond, Rugrats) as Hippolyta, Mozhan Marno (The Blacklist, House of Cards) as Dr. Cyber, and Ray Chase (Justice League Dark) as Lead Bandit.

In addition to viewing the movie, you'll want to watch the bonus content that comes along with it. Included with the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray combo packs as well as Digital purchases are the following extras:
