First Footage Revealed For DC's New Animated Film BATMAN AND HARLEY QUINN in Featurette
It was recently announced that Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) and Melissa Rauch (Big Bang Theory) would be voicing the characters Batman and Harley Quinn in DC Animation's upcoming new film Batman and Harley Quinn. They will be joined by Loren Lester (Batman the Animated Series), who is taking on the role of Nightwing and Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Poison Ivy.
Now we have a new 9-minute featurette for the film that gives us a behind-the-scenes look featuring interviews with the cast and crew, including Bruce Timm. It also offers us our first look at some of the footage from the movie and it looks like it could be a fun movie.
It gives us a few bit of information regarding the story. The film tells an original story featuring the reluctant team-up of Batman, Nightwing and Harley Quinn as they try and stop a global catastrophe caused by Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue, a.k.a. the Plant-Master. When talking about the film with Empire, Lester says it captures the essence of Batman: The Animated Series:
"So many fans have asked when there will be another Batman: The Animated Series, and this film really captures that sensibility and essence that people loved about the original series. That makes perfect sense when you know Bruce Timm was at the helm of both. The difference is we're not restricted by the networks for this film, so we can take the story and characters in more mature areas, and explore more about them as three-dimensional human beings with human feelings and human desires that we often couldn’t explore in the series."
The animated DC films have kinda been disappointing lately, so I really hope that Batman and Harley Quinn gives us a great animated film worth watching.
