A ‘Batman’ Animated Film and Collection Are Headed to Amazon

Lower than two months after a serious Batman animated sequence that was initially deliberate for HBO Max shifted over to Amazon, the net retail large (and streaming service) introduced it has acquired two extra DC-related tasks from Warner Bros.

The newest are a pair of interconnected tales, each animated, for movie and TV. The primary known as Merry Little Batman and it sounds type of like a cross between the Darkish Knight and Residence Alone, with Batman’s son Damian Wayne turning into “Little Batman” as a way to defend Wayne Manor from villains on Christmas Eve. Then the identical variations of these DC characters will proceed on within the spinoff present Bat-Household, which follows Batman, Alfred and Damien (now the everlasting “Little Batman”) as they dwell as a household of superheroes.

Morgan Evans wrote Merry Little Batman whereas Mike Roth directed it.

The Merry Little Batman and Bat-Household announcement comes on the heels of Amazon choosing up Batman: Caped Crusader, a much-anticipated animated sequence that was first introduced within the spring of 2021 and billed as a type of non secular continuation of the basic Nineteen Nineties Batman: The Animated Collection. Initially meant for HBO Max, Caped Crusader was left in limbo by the Warner Bros. Discovery merger and the company’s subsequent cost-cutting measures. Not like different canceled tasks just like the doomed Batgirl movie, Caped Crusader in the end discovered a brand new residence at Amazon — the place it’s going to now be joined by Merry Little Batman and Bat-Household.

That’s excellent news for Batman followers, and for Prime Video subscribers. Why HBO doesn‘t need these tasks, I can’t fairly fathom. However I’ll guess we’ll see what occurs to them after they debut on Amazon.
