Evil Goes Green in the First BATMAN AND HARLEY QUINN Trailer

Batman: The Animated Series has been the high water mark for DC cartoons for over two decades, and it’s still a fan-favorite to this day. And while a full revival of the show seems to be out of the question, the upcoming animated movie, Batman and Harley Quinn appears to capture that classic Bruce Timm style in a new adventure written by Timm himself.

Warner Bros. Animation has released the first trailer for Batman and Harley Quinn, which finds Batman and Nightwing reluctantly recruiting Harley Quinn on a mission to save humanity from the Floronic Man and Poison Ivy, Harley’s best friend. As you can see in the trailer, there’s more of an adult tone to this film, and the friendship between Harley and Ivy may not be enough to prevent a green apocalypse based on the work of the man who became Swamp Thing, Dr. Alec Holland.

Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester are reprising their roles as Batman and Nightwing, respectively, while Melissa Rauch portrays Harley Quinn in the film. Paget Brewster is voicing Poison Ivy, alongside Kevin Michael Richardson as the Floronic Man. Timm co-wrote the script with Jim Krieg, and Sam Liu directed the film.

Fans of Batman: The Animated Series may also be pleased to know that two classic Harley episodes will be included on the Blu-ray edition: “Harley and Ivy” and “Harley’s Holiday.” Additionally, Harley Quinn and Loren Lester will also be the subjects of their own stand-alone special features.

Batman and Harley Quinn will be released digitally on August 15, with the Blu-Ray and DVD release following on August 29.
