Warner Bros. isn’t letting a not-so-successful weekend at the box office hold them back from promoting their next big Green Lantern project. Here’s our first promo trailer for the new animated series.
The official website is now up as well. The series is centered around, who else? Hal Jordan. But in the clip we get looks at Salaak, the Guardians, Kilowog and…I couldn’t make out who the last one was. Regardless I’m really wondering how the series is going to do now that the film didn’t hit as big as they would have liked. Although, this show is obviously aimed at a entirely different demographic so you never know.
I saw a preview of the series at New York Comic Con last year and it’s definitely different than any of the other Warner Bros. animated series. It’s 3-D computer generated animation which puts me off a bit because I’m such a fan of their classic techniques but I’ll watch it regardless because there’s going to be Red Lanterns. Bruce Timm also mentioned the inspiration for the animation on the series was from Pixar’s The Incredibles and that he wasn’t worried about the success or failure of the film affecting the television show. You can read more details from the panel here.
The series will premiere on Cartoon Network later this year and stars Josh Keaton as Hal, Michael Clark Duncan as Kilowog (same as in the live-action film), Richard Green as Sinestro and Robert Englund as Hector Hammond.
