According to Johnson, the only challenge working on “DC League of Super-Pets,” was being one of its producers.

“It was a bit more challenging to produce the movie,” Johnson said. “The last movie I did that was animation was “Moana,”  which I was not a producer on, we had great producers on that. So there’s a lot more responsibility as you’re producing a movie like this,” and acting in it too.

Hart, also attended the premiere and brought his family out to support him. 

“You know your kids are proud, you know your kids love you,” Hart said. “Having any type of material that they just respond to in general is a big deal.”

In the film, Hart plays Ace, who he says he brought a lot of himself to the character. 

“You have to,” Hard said. “I think within anything, you have to find things that you can relate to and respond to.”
