Mattel and DC Comics’ ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ brand is off to a strong start, with the toys selling briskly at Target and fans viewing their animated adventures online and on The Cartoon Network. The series re-imagines such comic book all-stars as Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, Bumblebee, Katana, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn as teenagers attending Super Hero High School, where they are studying to become heroes. (Yes, even the traditional “bad guys.”) The animated shorts are only about five minutes long, although the girls got a 30-minute special which aired on Boomerang in March.
Now things are getting Super Sized. The ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ are headlining a new animated movie that is being released on home video on August 23rd. The film is entitled ‘Hero of the Year’ and here is the synopsis:
Where can you find the most powerful and prominent Super Teens in the galaxy? Super Hero High of course! Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy and Katana band together to navigate the twists and turns of high school in DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) this summer.
These young Super Heroes discover unique abilities, develop powers, and combat an abundance of overwhelming, exciting and awkward moments to master the fundamentals of being a hero – one day at a time! Together, these seven fearless Super Heroes prove that we all have the power to make the world a better place – even while school is in session!
DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year features some of the top voice actors in the industry. Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Anais Fairweather (Supergirl), Mae Whitman (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy) Teala Dunn (Bumblebee), and Stephanie Sheh (Katana) join forces to portray some of the newest students to attend Super Hero High.
