Warner Bros. Animation has unveiled the first-look image at upcoming animated series DC Super Hero Girls, featuring fabulously fierce super femmes designed by Emmy Award-winning animation producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends).
In addition to providing fresh character designs for Wonder Woman and crew, Faust serves as exec producer with Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!). The new 2D series is coming soon to Cartoon Network.
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.
The series builds on the success of the DC Super Hero Girls global franchise, with includes direct-to-video movies as well as digital-first animated webisodes, launched in 2015 and viewed by millions of fans on the DC Super Hero Girls YouTube channel and mobile app.
