    The Double-Dare Twins sure do get a lot of use in this series. Not that I mind ;).

    Nice seeing Grundy, Cheshire, and Killer Moth pop up too...and Killer Moth is still Killer Moth :p.

    I keep forgetting they're using the "daughter of Zeus" origin for Diana :sweat:.

    I didn't even realize that was Beast Boy at first. :p

    This is from last month, but I found a Tweet from Todd Grimes mentioning he also worked on the Lego DC Super Hero Girls shorts (or at least "Wonder Waitress").

    Nice to see Flash is still the Fastest Man Alive. Too bad for Lobo though :p.

    Hah, the only way Lobo would even have a shot is if he could have used his bike. I'm assuming that would be against the rules, though,heh.

    I recorded Galactic Wonder on my DVR and it does have a credits sequence :D.

    It was directed by Elsa Garagarza, who...possibly may have directed the other Lego shorts o_O?

    As far as the voice cast, everyone pretty much reprises their roles from the Webisodes or past movies :cool:.

    Though for those curious about Batgirl's new voice, she was voiced by Ashlyn Selich :).

    She must've meant the story, which she was listed as in the credits, because Tim Sheridan was credited for the screenplay :ack:.

    Jim Krieg is also listed as a story editor ;).

    Deadline reports, ‘DC Super Hero Girls’: Cartoon Network Sets Toon Series For 2018!
    EDIT: Interesting that Shea Fontana isn't involved with the series. Though I agree it's "in good hands" with Lauren Faust. :p

    I thought a full DC Super Hero Girls cartoon series was likely to happen at some point, though this is still kind of unexpected :eek:.

    It sounds kind of like a re-imagining of the DC Super Hero Girls universe or a new take on the concept then another entry in the universe like the graphic novels, webisodes, etc. Which probably explains why Shea Fontana isn't involved :sweat:.

    But, yeah, Lauren Faust is an excellent choice to handle this. Feels kind of like DC/WB finally giving her a reward for her work on Super Best Friends Forever :).

    So is this just going to run concurrently with the webisodes and animated movies/specials as it's own thing o_O?

    The premise sounds like it's going to explore the girls' personal lives outside of their costumes a little more compared to the main series, and they don't even mention Super Hero High, so that'll be interesting to see develop. Still sounds like they'll be plenty of crime-fighting though ;).

    Harley's role seems to be a little more villains or mischeivous compared to her counterpart in the main series, so I'm wondering if that will extend to the other traditional villains who are heroes in Super Hero High :ack:?

    Also curious to see who make up the "Justice League Bros" :p.

    It's interesting that they highlight Zatanna and Jessica Cruz, given neither have appeared in the main series yet and this would potentially be Jessica's animated debut :D.

    Well, it's not Super Best Friends Forever but it's more closer than the current Superhero Girls. I wonder if this is a full-on reboot. Maybe the current plotline isn't just doing well financially that they decided to make a new take.

    I also wonder if the voice actors from the original shorts will reprise their roles in a way. I also wonder why can't they just have Donna instead of Diana, and also I would've preferred Arisia instead of Jessica.

    From the sounds of it, it looks like Lauren Faust will be basically redesigning and doing a completely new take on the property. It'll be interesting to see how different it looks to the main version...

    I doubt it's because it's not doing well financially, because DC Super Hero Girls merchandise is selling extremely well, on-top of all the material that takes place in the current 'verse of the brand ;).

    I imagine, or hope, that the Webisodes, novels, graphic novels, and movies/specials will still be spearheaded by Shea Fontana and continue on as is :).

    I am curious if we're going for a completely different voice cast or if that will carry over from the web-series and animated features. Though I expect Tara Strong will still be Harley and Grey Griffin will still play Wonder Woman, rather then Batgirl or Wonder Girl as in SBFF :ack:.

    I'm not surprised they went with Jessica since she's the most prominent female Earth Green Lantern right now (and really the only prominent female Earth Green Lantern), though if this is anything like the other DC Super Hero Girls, Arisia probably still has a pretty good chance of appearing :anime:.

    Would be great to see this show cast Disney Channel actresses & make fun of Disney Channel teen sitcoms.

    Apologies for the delay, but here is the press release for this exciting DC Super Hero Girls news:

    DC SUPER HERO GIRLS EMBARK ON NEW ADVENTURES,
    WITH NEW ANIMATED SERIES COMING TO CARTOON NETWORK IN 2018

    Production has begun on DC Super Hero Girls, an all-new animated action-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC Entertainment. Featuring fresh character designs and storytelling from Emmy® Award–winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends), DC Super Hero Girls will be coming to Cartoon Network in 2018.

    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 super powers 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, and their bros in the Justice League amp up the fun whether they’re at a concert or taking down a crime ring. 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 new series is a global initiative with Cartoon Network and builds on the successful DC Super Hero Girls direct-to-video movies as well as digital webisodes launched in 2015 and viewed by millions of fans on the DC Super Hero Girls YouTube channel, as well as the DC Super Hero Girls mobile app.

    Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action) serves as executive producer.
