DC’s animation department has done a terrific job with all of their animated features showcasing some of the biggest names in DC’s library, and the next film in this legacy is the anthology style film, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. When I popped this into my Blu-ray player, honestly, I wasn’t sure to expect. I’ve been a fan, overall, of the DC animated films and their adaptation of All-Star Superman was almost perfect, it captured the heart and story of the comic while also making things cohesive for the animated medium. All-Star Superman is probably my favorite of the films, but I had an emotional tie to that story, and while I’ve loved the majority of these animated titles, I can’t say the same about Green Lantern: First Flight, the least favorite out of all the features.
Warner Home Video has released the trailer for their upcoming DC Universe original animated movie Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, which features the voice of Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan.
Watch the trailer here below. Above is a new image from the film.
As with Batman: Gotham Knights, the new Green Lantern feature will contain six interlocking stories. The stories, which were penned by some of today’s greatest comic book writers — Geoff Johns, Dave Gibbons, Peter J. Tomasi, Eddie Berganza, Alan Burnett, Todd Casey and Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim — center around the Green Lantern Corps and preparations for an attack on an ancient enemy.
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights will be released direct-to-DVD on June 7, just before the June 17 theatrical release of the Warner Bros. live-action film, Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds.
