Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series

Green Lantern, a DC Comics main­stay for more than 70 years, will be seen in an entirely new way when Warner Bros. Animation’s Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series – from world-renowned pro­ducer, artist and ani­ma­tor Bruce Timm (Bat­man: The Ani­mated Series, Jus­tice League) — comes to Car­toon Net­work in a one-hour spe­cial event.

With stun­ning, styl­ized CG ani­ma­tion, Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series takes view­ers on a jour­ney of cos­mic pro­por­tions as Hal Jor­dan and his band of heroes fight to save the uni­verse. The spe­cial pre­mieres at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) on Fri­day, Novem­ber 11 as a pre­cur­sor to the series debut­ing on Car­toon Net­work next year as part of the new DC Nation pro­gram­ming block.

Fans in the United States can watch a sneak peek of the com­plete first scene from the series at the Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series web­page at BCDB .

As Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal Jor­dan is used to being in dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions — but he’s never faced any­thing like this!

Set at the far­thest reaches of deep space, Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series finds Hal on the Guardian Fron­tier, where he must face down an inva­sion by the Red Lantern Corps. Pow­ered by pure rage, the evil Red Lanterns have sworn to destroy the Green Lantern Corps and every­thing they stand for. Dis­patched on the exper­i­men­tal space­craft The Inter­cep­tor, Hal is soon joined by an all-new group of heroes on a mis­sion to pro­tect Guardian Space — and the Green Lantern Corps itself!

Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series is an epic space adven­ture that has some­thing for every­one, and we are delighted for fans to see it Novem­ber 11 on Car­toon Net­work. We can’t wait to show the world this fresh take on an iconic hero — one that rep­re­sents not only the first Bruce Timm series to be pro­duced in CG, but also the first time Green Lantern has been ren­dered in CG,” said Sam Reg­is­ter, exec­u­tive vice-president of cre­ative affairs for Warner Bros. Ani­ma­tion, who also serves as an exec­u­tive pro­ducer of the series. “Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series is inspired by cur­rent and clas­sic Green Lantern mythol­ogy, but it’s also an all-new story — one that is the per­fect vehi­cle for the great Bruce Timm’s take on the character.”

It’s excit­ing for me to see Hal Jor­dan reimag­ined in such a com­pelling way, with fan­tas­tic CG and visual effects that only enhance the story,” stated Geoff Johns, chief cre­ative offi­cer of DC Enter­tain­ment and long­time writer of the Green Lantern comic book series. “Work­ing with Warner Bros. Ani­ma­tion and Car­toon Net­work to cre­ate Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series has been a great expe­ri­ence, and most impor­tantly, we’ve cre­ated a show that I can’t wait for peo­ple to see.”

Based on the DC Comics super­hero, Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series is an all-new CG ani­mated action series from Warner Bros Ani­ma­tion. Timm and Reg­is­ter (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Bat­man: The Brave and the Bold) are the exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers. Gian­carlo Volpe (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Avatar: The Last Air­ben­der) is the pro­ducer, and Jim Krieg (Ben 10: Alien Swarm) is the producer/story editor.

The voice cast for Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series includes Josh Keaton (Trans­form­ers Prime) as Hal Jor­dan, Jason Spisak (Young Jus­tice) as Razer, Kevin Michael Richard­son (Young Jus­tice, Thun­der­Cats) as Kilo­wog and Grey DeLisle (Bat­man: The Brave and the Bold) as Aya.

DC Comics will release a Green Lantern: The Ani­mated Series comic book as a com­pan­ion to the new series, and the first issue will be released to coin­cide with the Novem­ber spe­cial on Car­toon Network.
