New Dc Super Friends Animated Shorts Announced!

Variety announced the following today:

The DC Super Friends toy line, inspired by the Fisher-Price Imaginext action figures and play sets, will be turned into a series of 15 three-minute animated shorts, also launching in the spring that will be accompanied by an app to further connect audiences to the toys and characters.

Both projects are being overseen by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, which is working closely with DC Entertainment and toymakers Mattel and Fisher-Price.
“We are excited to continue to forge new ground with our long-time partners Mattel and Fisher-Price to build on the success of these popular toy lines by bringing the play pattern to life through this original content that we will be able to offer across multiple content platforms,” said Brad Globe, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

Toymakers have long seen animated series as a way to create demand around their playthings, but in most cases the traditional forms of entertainment came first. In this case, Batman and the rest of DC’s characters were already so established it enabled the company to take its time to launch a successful line of toys first and build content around them later.

“We are thrilled to be working with our Warner Bros., Mattel and Fisher-Price colleagues to create new Batman and DC Super Friends kids’ content,” said DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. “These new animated projects will offer all new Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman adventures that seamlessly jump from toybox to screen.”

The timing of the toy spinoffs come as DC is aggressively ramping up film and TV efforts around its superheroes.

But WB and DC, as well as its toy partners, also see new programming as a way to launch a new wave of action figures with accessories, a new Batmobile, and the all-new CybeRex robot dinosaur, all featured in the “Batman Unlimited” content.

Rubie’s Costumes will also produce dress up gear and costumes, while Thinkway also has new role-playing accessories in the works that are designed around the new movies and shorts, with other licensed apparel and products planned to launch later this year.

DC Super Friends content will also receive new toys based on its animated fare, including a Joker Laff Factory, new Batcave, and books.

“Our longstanding collaboration with WBCP has given Mattel the opportunity to engage fans of all ages with the very best in DC Comics Super Hero play,” said Doug Wadleigh, senior VP and general manager, Mattel Toy Box. “It is a true compliment that our evergreen DC Comics toy lines have inspired a whole new universe of storytelling that will dramatically expand kids’ imaginative play with their favorite super heroes.”

Batman Unlimited Direct to DVD Film Announced!

When fans first saw the Batman Unlimited artwork last year they thought perhaps a new cartoon series was coming.  We here at Legions of Gotham exclusively confirmed that it was, in fact, going to be direct to DVD, rather than a new series.  Now, many months later, WB has officially announced Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts!  The following is from a Variety article:

“Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts” will debut May 12, as a direct-to-homevideo animated movie that features Batman, the Flash, Red Robin, Nightwing and Green Arrow as they face off against super villain the Penguin, while introducing cyber animals as new foes. A sequel film will be released around the second half of 2015.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the “Batman Unlimited” films on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. In addition, WB will also produce 22 two-minute shorts around the “Batman Unlimited” toys, making them available for free on a variety of digital platforms, while a companion app also will provide young fans with access to content.

Mattel produces the Batman Unlimited action figures which are rolling out onto store shelves now, and feature a new look for the Caped Crusader.

Dallas: Season 3 DVD Review

click the title above to read the full review...

Dallas: Season 3 DVD Review

Synopsis: "Dallas" Season 3 packs even more dramatic and emotional wallop than its predecessors when turmoil strikes Southfork. From every direction, scandal and treachery mean greater family divisions, along with tenuous alliances and diabolical double-crosses. John Ross (Josh Henderson) continues to prove he's J.R.'s son, becoming more cunning than his daddy ever was. He's determined to seize control of the Ewing empire, setting his sites on global energy domination - and he's not about to cut Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) in for their share. Meanwhile, as if Elena (Jordana Brewster) hasn't done enough damage to her relationship with Christopher, she returns to Southfork with her own devious agenda. Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) conspires to put the wedding plans for John Ross and Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) on ice when she uncovers the groom's affair with Emma (Emma Bell). It looks like the Ewing clan couldn't possibly survive any more malefactions or stunning surprises... But that doesn't mean there aren't more coming.

Review:  Dallas was a legendary series when I was growing up.  My parents never missed an episode.  When TNT brought the show back as a continuation it was must-see!  This DVD set collects the third, and unfortunately, final season of the newer Dallas series.   Its a shame that the series is ending before its time.  The third season was the best, as the show really hit a nice stride.  The drama was excellent and to see J.R.'s son evolve into a monster like his dad was such a treat.  If you dig this show, this DVD set is a must have!
