So the movie comes out later this month. Guess this means no Wondercon premiere.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure if any DC animated movies will be shown there this year.

Well, the digital premiere is this month (February 25); the physical release isn't until March 17, still most of a month before WonderCon. The convention could premiere Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, which has already been completed (though it might be a bit too early).

This clip came out. The ending mentions this is rated R. I thought it said PG-13 sometime ago, though that was probably false.
Or Warner Bros. Entertainment actually wanted an 'R' rating and submitted a new cut with some edits restored. I saw the page for the original rating and it seemed legit. In fact, FilmRatings.com still has it listed (as of this writing) as PG-13, which is the rating the movie received when the first trailer came out (check out the trailer).

Maybe they got some sales data back in and asked for them to add back the elements that make it R rated. Yes, it was PG-13, back in December, when the first trailer then the press release statement came out, it was PG-13 for "PG-13 for violent content, bloody images, suggestive material, language, thematic elements and some smoking."

I don't think Red Son is particularly a nexplicit or graphic a story, but I could be forgetting something...
The only things that come to mind that could get the R rating is maybe elaborating more on Hal's backstory - namely the torture he goes through as a POW - or probably the East Coast battle with Superman vs. the GLC and Amazons. I recall one GL's head got knocked off?

Yeah, I could see that doing it. Maybe they up the action scenes a little...

I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
it is kinda weird how despite Frozen being the highest grossing animated movie until Lion King 2019, there were no mainstream animated movies that tried to copy it, or at least accused of copying Frozen. I wonder why?
Just letting you guys know: I'm changing my username in two weeks. It's similar to the original, but a bit more wordy.

The last time a new SpongeBob premiered before KCA's was in March 2017.
