The web series DC Super Hero Girls just got a redesign for its new TV series on Cartoon Network, and we got a chance to chat with executive producer Lauren Faust, director Jean Kluska, Nicole Sullivan (Supergirl), and Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman).
The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara, and Barbara — alongside their Super Hero friends — have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family, and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add superpowers and a secret identity to the mix and things can get a lot more complicated.
Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna, and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, but what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can't agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all their friends, foes, and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you're a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time.
The gang gave us all the info on voicing the characters, the redesign, the villains we're going to see, and what it means to have a superhero series targeted at young women. Check out the video below and let us know if you're excited for DC Super Hero Girls!
