BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
As the initial promo for “DC Nation” teased in November, the upcoming Cartoon Network programming block will include chibi versions of the Teen Titans in its mix of animated shorts and live-action interstitials. And thanks to IGN.com, we have our first look at the characters’ return to television.
Starring from 2003 to 2006 in their own Cartoon Network show, Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Raven will appear, in super-deformed form, in new shorts sandwiched between full episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice. Titled simply “New Teen Titans,” the shorts feature the voice actors from the earlier series: Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Khary Payton, Greg Cipes and Tara Strong.
“New Teen Titans” is part of a shorts roster that includes Plastic Man, LEGO Batman, Doom Patrol, Amethyst, Lauren Faust’s “Super Best Friends Forever,” Aardman’s claymation spots and Gotham Imposters.
DC Nation premieres Saturday, March 3 at 10 a.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
