Warner Bros. Animation has started production on the animated series DC SUPER HERO GIRLS for Cartoon Network. Lauren Faust, known for Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, will be creating fresh new character designs based off of the characters from the DC Universe.
The official summary of the series is below:
The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara, and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends, have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family, and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.
Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna, and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, and their bros in the Justice League amp up the fun whether they’re at a concert or taking down a crime ring. But what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can’t agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all of their friends, foes, and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you’re a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time.
The new series will build off of the DC SUPER HERO GIRLS direct-to-video movies as well as the webisodes that have been launched since 2015.
The DC SUPER HERO GIRLS series will premiere on Cartoon Network in 2018. What do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments below.
