The DC Super Hero Girls
has received a bit of an update as they make their way to Cartoon Network for a new animated action-comedy series. Warner Bros. Animation unveiled today our first look at the iconic heroes which boast "fresh character designs" from Emmy Award-winning producer Lauren Faust, whose previous work includes the likes of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
and Super Best Friends Forever.
DC Super Hero Girls
started off as a franchise of direct-to-video movies and webisodes aimed at building character and confidence and empowering girls to discover their true potential. The show takes the teenage versions of DC's powerful and diverse female characters and navigates the unique struggles of everyday life while simultaneously fighting to save the world.
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.
