DC Entertainment and Warner Home Video have been on a roll as of late. Their latest release, in the form of adapting Grant Morrison’s All-Star Superman was a massive success, and had great voice work done by names like Christina Hendricks and Anthony LaPaglia. Now, the animation studio is shifting focus onto this year’s big star, Green Lantern, with an animated anthology about Hal Jordan and the whole Green Lantern Corps. Warner Home Video has the full synopsis.
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is an all-new DC Universe Animated Original Movie that weaves six interlocking stories of the Green Lantern Corps’ rich mythology around preparations for an attack by an ancient enemy.
As the battle approaches, Hal Jordan (voiced by Nathan Fillion, Castle) mentors new recruit Arisia (Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men) in the history of the Green Lantern Corps, telling tales of Avra (the first Green Lantern) and several of Hal’s comrades – including Abin Sur, Kilowog, Laira and Mogo.
In the end, Arisia must rise to the occasion to help Hal, Sinestro and the entire Green Lantern Corps save the universe from the destructive forces of Krona.
So for the first time since the epic fan film done over a year ago, fans can finally combine Nathan Fillion with the Green Lantern in their minds again, and this time it will be legitimate.
Fans can catch Emerald Knights on Blu-Ray and DVD June 7th as the promotion ramps up for this summer’s highest anticipated films, Green Lantern, in theaters on June 17th.
