Helbig, Hannah Hart suit up in new superhero vehicle.
Finally, a super hero film that deals with sidekick drama, tagline rehearsals, and the confusion of catching an Uber in Prius-heavy Los Angeles.
Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, the Legendary Digital-produced film, will hit all major platforms June 7, and stars YouTubers Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart in the titular roles. The two budding superheroes leave Ohio behind for a Hollywood upgrade in the series based on Sid and Marty Kroft’s 1970s series.
Helbig took to her own YouTube to premiere the first full trailer.
“I might be biased, but that was [bleeping] cool,” says Helbig after the trailer finishes. She also promises an early version on Fullscreen for U.S. fans, with more info to come later.
