Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe (voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke) grew up an orphan after her parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from the threats like those that claimed her family. From executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow) and Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash), Vixen also features the voices of Arrow and the Flash stars Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/Arrow), Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon) as characters from the live-action series.

Animated superhero adventure has violence, mild cursing.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Vixen: The Movie is the first feature-length, animated film starring this superhero who has appeared as an ancillary character in DC Comics' stories since 1981. Mari McCabe (voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke), now dubbed "The Vixen," is a strong, female, African-American leader and crime-fighter who has the gift of utilizing the power of the earth's entire animal kingdom. This "movie" is actually a smoothly edited compilation of all episodes from Vixen's two seasons as a web series with five-minute episodes that streamed in 2015 and 2016 on Canada's CW Seed. Mari, aided upon occasion by some of DC's other franchise heroes, comes up against an array of supervillains in her efforts to protect the innocent. Viewers can expect lots of cartoon action, some of it violent and with all manner of lethal weaponry (fire, gunshots, hand-to-hand combat) and forceful superpowers (speed, strength, animal prowess). Along with the fierce action, there is a smattering of mild profanity ("ass," "hell," "bitch," "pissed off") which makes this Warner Bros. Animation entry appropriate only for tweens and up.
