Take a look at Lauren Faust’s DC Super Hero Girls
You’ve seen them in the web series. You’ve seen them in direct-to-video specials. But you haven’t seen DC Super Hero Girls like this. Warner Bros. Animation has unveiled the first image and plot synopsis for Lauren Faust’s (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) upcoming take on the DC heroines.
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.
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 2D-animated action-comedy series will launch globally on Cartoon Network sometime in the near future. Faust serves as exec producer alongside Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!).
The DC Super Hero Girls brand debuted in 2015 and encompasses animation, books, apparel, games, a wide-ranging toyline from Mattel, and more.
