DC Reveals The New Look For Their SUPER HERO GIRLS Animated Series as They Team Up with Cartoon Network
Warner Bros. Animation is teaming up with Cartoon Network to build on their already successful Super Hero Girls DC animated series. The announcement comes along with the first look at their fresh new character designs from producer Lauren Faust, who previously worked on shows like My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Super Best Friends Forever.
This whole franchise has been built to build confidence and empower young girls to discover their potential. As a father of three girls, that's why I support this series. It takes the teenage versions of some of DC's best and diverse female characters and shows them how to navigate the unique struggles of everyday life while simultaneously fighting to save the world.
The whole thing started with a franchise of direct-to-video movies and webisodes. Now that they are teaming up with Cartoon Network, we'll be seeing a lot more of the series. Here's the synopsis:
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, 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 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.
