Cartoon Network Gives Green Light To DC Super Hero Girls

Cartoon Network reveals that it has begun production on its upcoming animated DC superhero show DC Super Hero Girls.

Set for release in 2018, the planned series from Emmy Award-winning My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic producer Lauren Faust takes inspiration from the direct-to-video movie line of the same name. The franchise also includes a cell phone app and a Youtube channel, which hosts original webisodes and boasts millions of viewers.

Featuring Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, the program will offer a new twist on the DC heroines and follow them as they navigate the travails of adolescence. As they combat young versions of DC supervillains, the DC Super Hero Girls must balance saving the day with responsibilities to friends, family, and school.

Superherohype, the source of this story, adds the following information about the show’s plot:

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, and their bros in the Justice League amp up the fun whether they’re at a concert or taking down a crime ring. 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?

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
