Warner Home Video will release the first part of the Season 1 of Green Lantern: The Animated Series on August 28. The two-disc set will also includes a four-page preview of the Green Lantern: The Animated Series comic book. Based on the adventures of the DC Comics super hero, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, is Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block (Saturdays at 10 a.m.). It’s produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series; DC Universe Animated Original Movies). The release will feature the first 13 episodes of the CG-animated action series.
Green Lantern: The Animated Series – Rise of the Red Lanterns (Season 1, Part 1) follows Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps on a treacherous journey through deep space. As Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal must face down an invasion from the villainous Red Lantern Corps, who will stop at nothing to destroy and silence the Green Lantern Corps forever.
“Green Lantern: The Animated Series has really taken us into a realm we hadn’t explored before: our first completely CG-animated series,” says Sam Register, exec VP of creative affairs at Warner Bros. Animation. “Like Teen Titans and Batman: The Animated Series, it’s an incredible, groundbreaking action series, combining the legendary instincts of Emmy-winning executive producer Bruce Timm and the incredible artistry of WB’s CG animators. It’s a beautifully rendered, epic space adventure with a scale that’s simply breathtaking.”
Executive produced by Sam Register (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Ben 10), and Bruce Timm, the show is produced by Giancarlo Volpe (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Jim Krieg (Ben 10: Alien Swarm). Green Lantern features the voice talents of Josh Keaton as Hal Jordan, Jason Spisak as Razer, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kilowog and Grey DeLisle as Aya.
