New DC Animated Series: Young Justice League (UPDATED)
Apparently there is a new animated series in the offing, Young Justice League. Very little is known about it. Is it more of a Teen Titans (collection of sidekicks and younger superheroes), a Young Avengers(new characters mimicking existing superheroes) of Her-Oes(de-aged characters in a new setting)? No idea.
But we do know it that Stephanie Lemelin is doing one of the voices, that of Arrowette. Because she went and blabbed on her blog, and even provided this little snippet of artwork.
WOW. Ok… I am beyond thrilled to announce that I was recently cast in the new animated series, YOUNG JUSTICE LEAGUE, based on the famous (and awesome!?) DC Comics. I seriously could not be more excited about being welcomed into this amazing family… what a fantastic way to start the new year! I will be voicing the character of Arrowette (see ridiculously hot avatar below!!! um, could I love her anymore?) as well as several supporting cast members… Due to the extreme popularity of this series, however, that's about all I can say… for now. So excited, this is really a dream come true for me, I have ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SATURDAY MORNING CARTOOON!!! Woohoo!
(UPDATE: Gone now of course)
Arrowette is of course a character from the Young Justice comic book, whose mother had previously appeared in sixties Justice League Of America. So can we assume that Young Justice League is some kind of animated adaptation of that now-abandoned youthful revamp Young Justiceby Todd Dezago and Peter David? Pretty please?
Stephanie is better known as the character Thorne in Cavemen, and played Mei Ling in Kung Fu Panda.
UPDATE: I've been passed the following snippet purporting to be from someone who has seen a poster image for the show
It's Sorta THE Young Justice. They will be going out with this BIG TIME at Comic Con. From what I saw, it's Martian Girl, Aqualad, Nightwing, Impulse, Arrowette, and Connor Kent. The poster gives me the tone that it's a cross between JLU and TT. I liked the look a lot. It's not quite Timm-style, but it's not All Murikami'd out like Teen Titans.
The kids were the focus of the poster, in the center, but The JL was behind them.
