BOOMERANG IS REVVING UP FOR BATWHEELS, DC’S FIRST-EVER ANIMATED BATMAN PRESCHOOL SERIES
PREMIERING ON BOOMERANG IN ITALY ON 18 th MARCH
Batwheels marks DC’s first-ever Batman preschool show featuring a high-speed, vibrant CGI-animated iteration of the Caped Crusader. The fun-filled action-adventure show combines two of a young kid’s favourite things – superheroes and vehicles! They’re the Batwheels – an awesome group of sentient super-powered crime-fighting vehicles defending Gotham City alongside a host of DC Superheroes. Brought to life by the Batcomputer to help defend Gotham City, the heroic Batwheels are thrust into hilarious hijinks and jaw-dropping action while learning important life lessons. Led by Bam, The Batmobile, the Batwheels must navigate the challenges of being a newly formed super team as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid.
This relatable and aspirational series will follow the journey of this dynamic team as they thrill and entertain with their heroic adventures, as well as demonstrate to preschool kids the value of self-confidence, friendship, and teamwork.
The all-star voice cast includes Ethan Hawke (as Batman), Jacob Bertand (as Bam the Batmobile), Gina Rodriguez (as Catwoman) and Xolo Maridueña (as Snowy the Snowcrawler), among others. Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons) serves as Executive Producer, Michael G. Stern (Doc McStuffins) as Co-Executive Producer, Simon J. Smith (Penguins of Madagascar) as Supervising Producer and Steven Fink of Bang Zoom Ltd. as Producer. Based on characters from DC, Batwheels is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with animation services provided by Superprod Studio.
Batwheels will debut a half-hour prequel special, “Secret Origin of the Batwheels” on Cartoonito on 18th March which will tell the backstory of how the Batwheels came to be.
Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products is working with top licensees and partners around the world for a global merchandise program coming soon that will ensure kids, families and fans who love Batwheels can also get in on the action off screen as well.
Join the Batwheels on their action-packed adventures from 18th March on Boomerang.
