DC Super Hero Girls Animated Series Character Designs Released New Show Coming To Cartoon Network USA This Year

In May 2017, Cartoon Network USA, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation announced a new animated series called DC Super Hero Girls, today (22nd May 2018), DC Comics has released a image featuring the show’s main characters along with the show’s logo. The new animated series is due to premiere on Cartoon Network USA later this year. The brand new animated show originated from a YouTube short animation series which started in 2015 and is also based on the DC Super Hero Girls: Super Hero High special.

According to the newly released artwork, the new show will be having a completely different look compared to the animated shorts and the Super Hero High special that came before it, with a different art style and new character designs, this is because Emmy award–winning producer Lauren Faust is working on the show as a producer and character designer, she’s known for her work on Cartoon Network’s Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends and most recently Hasbro’s and DHX Media’s animated series – My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Sam Register – the president of Warner Bros’ Animation and creator of Cartoon Network’s Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi will be working on the show’s production team as executive producer.

The new series follows not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara better known by their superhero names Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl who attend a school for superheroes. While not at school, they’re protecting the city of Metropolis from some of the most fearsome school-aged supervillians of the DC Comics Universe. However, being a young superhero isn’t easy, especially as they have to balance their time between a social life, their families, their studies and saving the city. Apart from the fact the characters are superheroes, they’re still typical teenagers. Other characters from the DC Comics universe featured in the show include Bumblebee, Zatanna, Jessica Cruz (Green Lantern), Katana and Harley Quinn.
