The Teen Titans are ready for a come back. It’s been 5 years since the series finale “Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo”. This new series will serves as a follow-up to the 2003 Teen Titans series. Unlike its predecessor, the new series will be more comedy oriented with the focus on the “funny business” that happens between the Teen Titans when not saving the world and when living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The Teen Titans must deal with horrific situations such as teenage pranks reaching a whole new level, or having to take Driver’s Ed after wrecking the Batmobile.
“Teen Titans Go!” will air on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation alongside Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Young Justice: Invasion, and Beware the Batman. The cast and creators of the original animated series return for this new incarnation which is set to premiere in March.
In case you forgot, here’s the voice cast:
Scott Menville – Robin
Tara Strong – Raven
Greg Cipes – Beast Boy
Hynden Walch – Starfire
Khary Payton – Cyborg
Also, the Dark Knight returns with a new series entitled “Beware the Batman” which is set to premiere in March as well. Like Green Lantern, this series will also be CGI animated. The series follows Crime-fighting vigilante Batman as he teams up with swordmistress Katana and his ex-secret agent butler Alfred Pennyworth to face the criminal underworld led by Anarky, Ra’s al Ghul, Tobias Whale, Professor Pyg, Magpie, Mister Toad, King Kraken, Humpty Dumpty, and Axel Alex, with Anarky, particularly, serving as the main antagonist in the series. These criminals, other than Ra’s al Ghul, are not as widely known as other villians such as Joker, Mr. Fries or Killer Croc. The show will take on a darker tone.
Cast members include:
Anthony Ruivivar – Batman / Bruce Wayne
Sumalee Montano – Katana / Tatsu Yamashiro
J. B. Blanc – Alfred Pennyworth
Udo Kier – Mister Toad
Lance Reddick – Ra’s al Ghul
