It's Gotham City in the 21st century and there are earth-shattering questions to be answered. Why did Bruce Wayne give up being Batman? What ever happened to Robin? And what became of Batman's arch-nemesis, the Joker? Here is the official screenplay of the animated movie, chronicling the latest Batman adventure-an original, feature-length animated film made exclusively for video to be released Halloween 2000.

In addition to the full shooting script, the book is filled with rare original art and storyboards used in the film's creation-printed for the first time ever-and two scenes cut from the movie, providing fans with a unique, inside look into the world of Batman Beyond. In this exciting screenplay, the missing chapters in the Batman legend are revealed for the first time. When Batman's arch-nemesis, the Joker, returns from the dead, the future of Gotham City hangs on the heroism of the new Batman, young Terry McGinnis. But first, Terry must unravel the secret, unspoken history shared by Bruce and his former partners, Barbara (Batgirl) Gordon and Tim (Robin) Drake.

This page-turner is filled with excitement for teen and adult fans and school-age readers. It's also an excellent reference source for professional and aspiring screenwriters, animators, and cartoonists.
