New DC SuperHero Girls shorts premier on YouTube
The fourth season of DC SuperHero Girls shorts debuted on YouTube on January 18th. The Shea Fontana created series reimagines comic book legends as high school students in a more girl-friendly package. New episodes are added every Thursday.
Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the shorts, which initially launched in 2015, are just one component of the DC SuperHero Girls mix. Mattel and LEGO are major toy partners, bringing the girls to life (and inspiring their own direct-to-video special). There’s extensive publishing, from novels by Random House and comics from DC.
More’s likely to be on the way as a full-fledged DC SuperHero Girls animated TV series is in development at Cartoon Network. That’s being headed up by animation great Lauren Faust and has a release window of sometime this year.
