Aquaman: King of Atlantis
Three-Part Animated Mini-Series Event from Executive Producer James Wan and Warner Bros. Animation
Stars the Voice Talents of Cooper Andrews, Gillian Jacobs, Thomas Lennon and Dana Snyder
First Episode Swims onto HBO Max on Oct. 14
WarnerMedia Kids & Family and DC released today the first promo for the highly anticipated animated mini-series event, Aquaman: King of Atlantis. The new animated series from Warner Bros. Animation presents a playful reimagining of the iconic DC Super Hero and tells an original tale about Aquaman’s first adventures as King of Atlantis. Family audiences will follow Aquaman, his royal advisor Vulko, warrior-princess Mera and a fun roster of characters on epic underwater excursions filled with colorful animations, monstrous creatures and thrilling battles. The action-packed mini-series will release new episodes weekly on HBO Max beginning Thursday, Oct. 14.
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. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to 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. The series is executive produced by 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!).
