IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
More than six years after the end of Cartoon Network’s popular Teen Titans animated series, the team will return in a new half-hour show as part of the cable channel’s DC Nation programming block.
Debuting in 2013, Teen Titans Go! feature the all-new comedic adventures of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg, who now appear in chibi form in a series of well-received shorts airing on DC Nation. Like those “New Teen Titans” shorts, the show will employ a super-deformed style and feature the voices of original cast members Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Khary Payton, Greg Cipes and Tara Strong. Here’s the official description:
Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the super hero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. They may be super heroes who save the world every day … but somebody still has to do the laundry! With the ability to turn into any animal or detach their robotic limbs, teenage pranks reach a whole new level. And even super heroes have to take Driver’s Ed. to get a license – especially after wrecking the Batmobile on an unauthorized joy ride to impress a girl!
DC Nation, which airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT, is currently anchored by Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice. The CG-animated Beware the Batman is expected tto be added to the lineup later this year. Teen Titans Go! is executive produced by Sam Register (Green Lantern: The Animated Series, The Looney Tunes Show, Teen Titans), with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Aaron Horvath (MAD, El Tigre) as producers.
