Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s… two teenagers? That’s right, two teenagers trying to sweep audiences into a world where courage meets camaraderie, and ordinary teenagers become extraordinary heroes. Ladybug and Cat Noir is an animated movie that effortlessly captures the hearts of both children and adults alike. Directed by Jeremy Zag, this film adaptation of the beloved TV series takes the audience on an exhilarating journey filled with action, humor, and heart. Join us as the iconic duo, Marinette Dupain-Cheng and Adrien Agreste, swing into action to defend the City of Lights from various evil threats.

Sweet but socially anxious klutz Marinette Dupain-Cheng (Cristina Vee) is doing her best to live her teenage life, without being noticed. She likes to keep to herself, and hopefully get through her schoolyears. When she accidentally ruins a sweater of the most popular girl in high school, ChloƩ (Selah Victor), Marinette is forced to hide to avoid the wrath of ChloƩ. While she is running, she stumbles in the library. Here, Marinette bumps into Adrien Agreste (Bryce Papenbrook) and within seconds, she has a crush on him. While having a crush is already quite exhausting and time-consuming for most teenagers, it seems that Marinette is also cut out for the superhero life when she saves an old man from being hit by a car. As she gets to grips with her new powers and secret identity, the villain Hawk Moth (Keith Silverstein) uses his new powers of chaos to absorb the powers of good for his nefarious plans.

The movie starts pretty slow, to let the viewers get to know all the different characters, but it quickly changes its pace when it comes to the action scenes. While Spider-Man needed a training montage with inspiring music, this duo seemingly needed no training at all and just went with the flow. Throughout the movie, Marinette and Adrien must balance their double lives while still experiencing their teenage lives and the friendships they make along the way, while not neglecting schoolwork and their families. As they confront various villains and face formidable challenges, they learn valuable lessons about teamwork, responsibility, and the importance of using their powers for good.

The fighting scenes are in fact, pretty funny to watch. Not only does it show a way for harmless violence, but it also shows that it keeps true to the series as well. Who knew a yo-yo and a bo staff could have such a variety in usage when fighting evil? Despite its action-packed plot, Ladybug and Cat Noir never loses sight of its true message of hope and optimism. In a world filled with darkness, Marinette and Adrien serve as beacons of light, inspiring us to believe in the power of goodness and the possibility of positive change.

We must give credit where credit is due and in this case, it’s all about the voices. The voice actors did a great job voicing these teens with all their insecurities and fears. Whenever a musical moment sprung up, you could really feel the emotions of said characters. Every dark moment was delivered with the right tone, and in every glorious moment, you can hear some sort of victorious tune coming out of the characters’ mouths. As a bonus to this wonderful work, the cast for the movie is the same cast as the original series. This makes it easier for new fans to dive into the series afterwards, and it’s also nice for longtime fans to hear the familiar voices in a full-length movie.

The DVD doesn’t include any bonus features, which is a shame. We would have loved to see some additional footage, such as recording sessions, fun extras for kids, and so on. It’s a shame when physical media comes without any special features, as this is one of the main selling points to purchase DVDs or Blu-rays.


In conclusion, the movie is a delightful adventure that will captivate audiences of all ages. With stunning animation, engaging characters, and uplifting themes, this film is a must-see for anyone in search of an entertaining and heartwarming movie. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the series or discovering these iconic heroes for the first time, Ladybug and Cat Noir is sure to provide you with an entertaining experience.
