THIS is how time flies… I was absolutely convinced that it had been over a year since Legendary Studios teamed with Sid and Marty Krofft to remake their classic Saturday morning series Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, and that it must have been quite a while since the cast members’ appearance at Comic-Con 2015.
But no! The series is done and coming to home video as a full-length film. And we’re on board with giving it a look — to be honest, nostalgia has tinted the original series, and a refresh would probably work. Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart are bright and funny, and yes, let’s be honest, YouTube stars. But if you’re someone grumbling about that, well, the genie is out of the bottle, and it’s just one more way that content is getting created. Let the worlds merge!
A smart, witty and fresh twist on the cult-classic television series from Sid & Marty Krofft, the all-new feature-length comedy ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL debuts on digital June 7 and on DVD July 5 from Legendary Digital Studios and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Further expanding into film from their YouTube origins, where combined they have generated more than 415MM views, comedians Grace Helbig (“The Grace Helbig Show”) and Hannah Hart (“My Drunk Kitchen”) transform into the ultimate superhero duo in this exciting new action comedy. ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL follows two small-town female crime-fighters that move to Los Angeles in order to find superhero stardom. The film also stars Andy Buckley (“The Office,” Bridesmaids, The Heat). U.S. fans will also have the opportunity for an early look with Fullscreen.
ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL comes fully-loaded with exclusive bonus content, including audio commentary with Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart; a “making of” featurette that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the film; “Inside Creative Masked Management” a featurette following the film’s superhero talent agency; and eight hilarious featurettes that go deeper into the world of Electra Woman & Dyna Girl.
Hannah Hart and Grace Helbig previously teamed up for the iTunes Top 10 feature film Camp Takota and their live tour #NoFilter has been selling out domestically and internationally. Hart and Helbig have a combined social following that exceeds 10MM.
UPDATE: Sony has released the first official trailer:

ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL follows two superheroes, ‘Electra Woman’ (Grace Helbig) and ‘Dyna Girl’ (Hannah Hart), as they move from Akron to Los Angeles in hopes of making it big in the crime fighting world, only to find competition with other vigilantes and infighting amongst themselves.
