Warner Bros. has announced that Batman and Harley Quinn, the latest instalment in the series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, is set to receive its world premiere next month at the San Diego Comic-Con International, which will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and voice cast. Meanwhile, both UK and US fans will be able to catch the movie on the big screen with a one night only theatrical release on August 14th.
In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.
Batman and Harley Quinn is based on an original story by Bruce Timm and sees Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester reprising their Batman: The Animated Series roles as Batman and Nightwing respectively. The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch lends her voice to Harley Quinn, while the voice cast also includes Paget Brewster as Poison Ivy, John DiMaggio as Swamp Thing, Jevin Michael Richardson as Jason Woodrue and Eric Bauza, Rob Paulsen, Mindy Sterling, Robin Atkin Downes and Trevor Devall.
Batman and Harley Quinn is set for release on August 15th on Digital and on August 29th on Blu-ray and DVD.
