It’s time to get your cape on girls. But be prepared for a different look.
DC Super Hero Girls has been given the green light for a new action-comedy animated series for The Cartoon Network. But don’t look for the same character designs or types of stories that have come before by the brand, as Emmy Award-winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!) offers something fresh and dynamic.
The series is described as the following:
“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 superpowers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.”
The series capitalizes on the popularity of the direct-to-video releases and online episodes, which are significantly different in design and content. Faust will serve as executive producer.
