Remember how Kevin Smith made a horror movie – Red State – and released it by taking it on college tour? Well, now he’s done an animated superhero movie – Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie – with the unique Jay and Silent Bob sensibility (which is to say it’s rude beyond words and funny as hell). Beware: the above trailer would be a red band trailer if it was going the studio route – not for the faint of heart or ultra-conservative!
For the logline, star-studded cast and a list of playdates, follow the jump.

When they can no longer stomach the ever-growing weed of suburban crime, Jay and Silent Bob take on the mantles of costumed avengers Bluntman and Chronic, smashing the super-villains they accidentally create! Can the Doobage Duo save their beloved Jersey ‘burbs from their new arch enemies, the League of Shitters? While clearly not the comic book movie the world wants, GROOVY MOVIE is the comic book movie the world needs! Starring the voice talents of Jason Mewes, Eliza Dushku, Ralph Garman, Ben Gleib, Tara Strong, Jennifer Schwalbach, Jon Lovitz, Neil Gaiman, Ray William Johnson, Scott Mosier, Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Brian Quinn, Ming Chen, Michael Zapcic, Kevin Conroy, Brian "Comichead" Faraldo, Jensen Karp, and Kevin Smith. Produced by Jason Mewes. Directed by Steve Stark.
