Cartoon Network drops the trailer for its new movie, DC Super Hero Girls: Sweet Justice. Not only did the first trailer promise more humor, heart, and heroics, but it also revealed the series will premiere on Cartoon Network on March 8th.
DC Super Hero Girls is an ever expanding line, with a series of animated movies and LEGO shorts accompanied by a series of products including action figures and apparel. The movies have skewed toward a younger demographic, while the new series appears to be capturing the same tone as the popular Teen Titans GO!
DC Super Hero Girls centers on teenager versions of the best-known female crimefighters from the DC Comics library. The official description: “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.”
The cast includes voice actors from original series Tara Strong (Batgirl) and Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), as well as Kari Wahlgren (Zatanna), Nicole Sullivan (Supergirl), Kimberly Brooks (Bumblebee), and Myrna Velasco (Green Lantern/Jessica Cruz). As seen in the trailer, the series will take place in Metropolis, and Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy appear to be adversaries, along with other iconic DC villainesses. The YouTube shorts will reportedly continue to run alongside the television series.
