Batman and Harley Quinn animated film gets a trailer
Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment have released the full trailer for their next DC Universe original movie, Batman and Harley Quinn. Set to debut digitally on August 15 and on Blu-ray and DVD August 29, you can check it out in the player below!
Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn sees Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.
The latest DC animated film features a stellar voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series), reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as the irrepressible Harley Quinn.
