Merry Little Batman was first revealed in April 2023, and the debut trailer gives us our first look at the intriguing animated flick.

While Batman and the Justice League are out fighting crime, a very young Damian Wayne stumbles across a scheme to destroy Christmas for all Gothamites.

The Joker and Riddler had previously been revealed in official stills, but the trailer shows that the Penguin, Bane, and Mr. Freeze will also appear.

In a previous interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Tim Roth (Regular Show) teased, "Because it's a Christmas story, telling it through the eyes of a child seemed apropos. Typically, Damian is a teenager who struggles with good and evil. While this was an interesting idea that was initially explored, we landed on a younger Damian. We decided to turn the clock back on Damian's petulant nature to a time when he was more innocent and wide-eyed."

Roth went on to add, "The idea of a teeny, tiny, little kid in this huge city aspiring to become Batman like his dad was such a fun starting point. It gave us the heart and comedy we were looking for and opened the window to a Gotham City Christmas like we've never seen before."

The official synopsis for Merry Little Batman reads, "When young Damian Wayne finds himself alone in Wayne Manor on Christmas Eve, he must transform into “Little Batman” in order to defend his home and Gotham City from the crooks and supervillains intent on destroying the holidays."

Luke Wilson (Old School) portrays Batman with David Hornsby (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) voicing the Joker and  Jonas Kibreab (Sweet Tooth, Elio) playing Damian. Also voicing a character in the film is the legendary James Cromwell (L.A. Confidential, Succession), who plays Alfred.

The amusing animated film will be followed up by an ongoing Prime Video series, Bat-Family

In addition to Bat-Family, Prime Video also ordered a second animated series, Batman: Caped Crusader, which is executive produced by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League), J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Matt Reeves (The Batman). Batman: Caped Crusader received a two-season order from Prime Video.

Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!) and Jase Ricci (Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham) penned the script.

Merry Little Batman will premiere on Prime Video, December 8, 2023.

I know that Batman sells, but damn put some effort. Nowadays he is the one DC hero that sill manages to sell based on his name (Superman lost that power), but if they keep making things like this... At least it's the type of thing that almost no one will hear about anyways.

James Cromwell as Alfred amazing. Perfect casting

It's fitting that Damian looks like Batmite in this, same level of annoyance I feel with both characters

I wonder why its not going to Max? Discovery Warner's branding is a mess.

Looks hilarious to kill some time and it's nice to see, or well hear, Luke Wilson again in a DC project after Stargirl. (*shakes fist at Nexstar for the cancelation and WBD for burning the suits)

Damian is the son of Batman
