Get ready to LEVEL UP with Cartoon Network, as the top-rated original movie of the same name made its DVD debut yesterday, complete with a never-before-seen episode from its all-new television series.

Starring: Gaelan Connell, Connor Del Rio, Aimee Carrero, Jessie Usher, Katie Adkins, George Faughnan, Ron Clinton Smith
Director: Peter Lauer
Studio: Turner Hm Entertainm
MPAA: Not-Rated
Genre: Childrens,Fantasy

When it premiered on Cartoon Network in November 2011, Level Up captured more than 2.5 million viewers ages 2 and up, ranked #1 in its time period among kids 6-11 and was the #1 telecast of the day among kids 9-14 and all boys, according to Nielsen Media Research. 

Level Up, a live-action/CG-animated 90-minute movie, is a fantastical comedy for the videogame age that turns the game on the player.  When a glitch in the system releases an evil villain and a bunch of his trolls from an online game into the real world, three high school gamers must join forces to win the game and save the world. The DVD includes the movie -- created and written by Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman (both credited for Chasing Liberty) and directed by Peter Lauer (Sons of Tucson, Chuck)  -- as well as a first look at the new “Wanted” episode from the praised Level Up television series and a music video of “The Bomb” by Pigeon John.

The 411 by Maria:

If you haven't seen Level Up yet, it is a great show. Now that the kids are getting older, we watch a whole lot more TV together. Being a big kid myself, I really get into the shows with the kids. 

Level Up is about four very different high school students named Wyatt, Dante, Lyle and Angie 

Goddess and I LOVED this movie.  Handsome didn't watch it with us the first time around but he now has it in his room and has watched it daily for 4 days. 

The boys are big gamers and spend their free time working as a team in the virtual game Conqueror of All Worlds. Unbeknownst to them, they really know each other and don't actually like each other at school.  

When they accidentally open a portal from their game world to the real world, all hell breaks loose.

They believe that they have unlocked some beta version of the game but the next night when they meet up online they soon realize that they must meet in person and figure this out.

What a great movie. Taking these very different personalities, the jock, the skater boy, the geek and throw in the spunky chick and there is someone who will appeal to all kids.  I love the idea that these kids who are so different, hang with a certain crowd in school, tease and disrespect each other can come together and realize that we are really just people living together in this world. All for one, one for all!
