DC Super Hero Girls Is Coming To Cartoon Network In 2018
It seems Cartoon Network will be getting more DC comic characters in 2018. DC Super Hero Girls is currently in production and will have “fresh character designs and storytelling” from Emmy Award–winning producer Lauren Faust (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic). Warner Bros. Animation chief Sam Register will be the executive producer for the series. DC Super Hero Girls is already a hit online and through direct to video movies from back in 2015. It’s been so successful that there is even merchandise, dolls, and comic books based off it. I have no doubt that this will be another hit for Cartoon Network and rake in even more money for DC entertainment. I look forward to seeing the results of this show especially among a young female audience which is their main target.
Description of the show from press release:
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 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.
