Created by Emmy Award–winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends), DC Super Hero Girls will be centered around the teenage versions of DC Comics’ iconic female superheroes and villains. 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 super-powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.
The voice cast is consists of Tara Strong as Batgirl; Grey Griffin as Wonder Woman, Kari Wahlgren as Zatanna, Nicole Sullivan as Supergirl, Kimberly Brooks as Bumblebee, and Myrna Velasco as Green Lantern Jessica Cruz. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action) will served as executive producer.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, the DC Super Hero Girls franchise provides kids with a relatable world filled with aspirational characters, immersive stories and action-packed missions that inspire viewers to be smart, courageous and empowered to be an everyday Super Hero. Centered around the most renowned DC Super Heroes (Supergirl, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Bumblebee) and Super-Villains (Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy) as they learn to develop and harness their superpowers, work as a team and strengthen their friendships, while still getting their homework done on time.
The new series is a global initiative with Cartoon Network and builds on the successful DC Super Hero Girls direct-to-video movies as well as digital webisodes launched in 2015 and viewed by millions of fans on the DC Super Hero Girls YouTube channel, as well as the DC Super Hero Girls mobile app.
