Warner Bros. has announced that it is launching two new DC-themed lines in Batman Unlimited and DC Super Friends, which will include various toys and animated projects.
According to Variety, Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts will be released on May 12 as a direct-to-video animated movie featuring Batman, Flash, Red Robin, Nightwing and Green Arrow going up against the Penguin. This will be followed by another feature-length sequel, as well as 22 two-minute shorts which will be made freely available across a range of digital platforms.
Meanwhile, the DC Super Friends toy line will turn into a series of 15 three-minute animated shorts, which will be launched in the spring and will feature an app that enables viewers to connect the shorts to the related toy line.
“We are thrilled to be working with our Warner Bros., Mattel and Fisher-Price colleagues to create new Batman and DC Super Friends kids’ content,” said DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. “These new animated projects will offer all new Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman adventures that seamlessly jump from toybox to screen.”
