Now, if you’re a PreCure fan, I’m sure you’re well aware of the All Stars films. If not, then the premise is simple: Cures from each of the different continuities team up to take down a big evil threat. I think ‘Avengers but with magical girls’ is probably a good way to describe the films.
This is the first in a series of posts where I will be looking at the All Stars stuff – originally I planned to have it all together in one big post, but turns out I had more to say about each one than I thought I would.
First, I’ll be taking a look at a five-minute short, where the concept of the Cures teaming from different continuities was first shown.
Series featured: Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart, Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash Star & Yes! PreCure 5 GoGo!
The first foray into the All Stars wasn’t actually a feature-length film, but a five minute short called Pretty Cure All Stars DX: GoGo Dream Live.
As a five minute short, GoGo Dream Live does nothing to establish its characters – if you want that, then you’ll need to watch the appropriate seasons of PreCure. The foe that appears just comes into existence and the Cures just happen to stumble upon it.
Since watching 11 transformations would take up a lot of time, we get the abridged versions and then the Cures start fighting. If you’re familiar with PreCure at all, you’ll pretty much know how the battle goes – physical combat followed by finishing moves.
The credits feature the Cures dancing to a medley of their respective theme tunes, again, using abridged versions due to a short running time.
A pretty fun five minute distraction, and it does mark the very start of the All Stars series of films.
