DC is upping its game with its latest animated mini-series, Aquaman: King of Atlantis. A Warner Bros. Animation production, the series is based on the Aquaman comics by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger.
Created by Victor Courtright and Marlyn Halpern-Graser, the series is a playful reimagination of the DC superhero, telling the original tale of Aquaman's early adventures as King of Atlantis. Viewers will follow Aquaman (Cooper Andrews), his royal advisor Vulko (Thomas Lennon), warrior princess Mera (Gillian Jacobs) and the Ocean Master (Dana Snyder) with others on their epic underwater adventures full of colours, creatures and battles.
'Aquaman: King of Atlantis': Ensemble voice cast
The first promo for the series, Aquaman: King of Atlantis, was released over the weekend. The preview takes viewers to the mythical Undersea Kingdom in the royal court of Atlantis, where Aquaman isn't seen as a leader at first. But when he takes over the throne, he's presented with a long list of tasks to complete.
In comes Aquaman's half-brother, Ocean Master, who challenges him to a duel for the throne. Aquaman eventually defeats him and concludes that combat is not a solution to choosing the right monarch.
