The first promo for the highly anticipated animated mini-series event, Aquaman: King of Atlantis, has been released! The new animated series from Warner Bros. Animation presents a playful reimagining of the iconic DC Super Hero; it tells an original tale about Aquaman’s first adventures as King of Atlantis.
The three-part event begins on Aquaman’s first day on the job as King of Atlantis, and he’s got a LOT of catching up to do! Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up: Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water-controlling warrior-princess. Aquaman has to deal with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time, and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him. Will he rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects and to himself that he’s the right man for the throne?
The talented voice cast includes Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) as Aquaman, Gillian Jacobs (Community) as Mera, Thomas Lennon (Reno 911) as Vulko, and Dana Snyder (Jellystone!) as Ocean Master.
Victor Courtright (ThunderCats Roar!) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) serve as showrunners and co-executive producers. James Wan (Aquaman and the upcoming Malignant), Atomic Monster’s Michael Clear (Annabelle Comes Home) and Rob Hackett (Swamp Thing), and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) all executive produce the series.
Aquaman: King of Atlantis will release new episodes weekly on HBO Max beginning Thursday, Oct. 14.
