DC Entertainment has released the first look into their rebooted Cartoon Network series DC Super Hero Girls. The reboot will be developed by Lauren Faust, known as the creator of the famous children television series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
The image below presents the new designs for Zatanna, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: Jessica Cruz, Bumblebee, and Batgirl.
We can certainly see a resemblance to a magical world. The characters are bright and cheerful, but I love Faust’s ability to entertain all ages. This will be her second project with DC Entertainment. Her previous work includes the Super Best Friends Forever shorts starring Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl. We’ll include a clip at the end.
DC Super Hero Girls features a huge list of famous heroines. It also gives us a fun spin on Batman’s villains: Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Katana. The level of support and butt-kicking brings a wonderful message.
Below is the synopsis:
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.
Look forward to future details in the upcoming months and possibly more during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Meanwhile, check out Faust’s first work with DC Entertainment!
