The Batmobile is revving up for its own crime-fighting adventures in a brand new animated series called Batwheels.
Warner Bros. Animation has started production on the kid-centric series which will feature the most iconic vehicles from across the DC Comics universe.
Set in Gotham City, the heroic crew is led by Bam the Batmobile who battles baddies alongside Bibi the Batgirl Cycle, Red the Redbird, Jett the Batwing, and Buff the Bat Truck.
Having just been created by the Batcomputer, our heroes are essentially kids with little to no life experience. Together, the super-powered vehicles navigate the responsibilities of being a newly-formed super team, as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid.
Batwheels will follow the heroic journey of this dynamic team as they entertain, inspire and demonstrate the value of self-confidence, friendship and teamwork to young viewers. Batman, Robin, Batgirl and a host of other DC superheroes will also make appearances in the show.
Speaking about the project, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, Sam Register said…
“From Batman: The Animated Series to Teen Titans Go!, superhero storytelling has definitely been one of our superpowers here at Warner Bros. Animation. We are so excited to bring that expertise over to the preschool space and take something that all kids love, cool vehicles, and give it a turbo boost with Batman.”
Tom Ascheim, President of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics added his thoughts too…
“Batwheels is the perfect show to headline our new foray into preschool. I can’t wait for all the aspiring superheroes out there to meet this whole new batch of crime-fighters.”
The series is produced by Warner Bros Animation with Sam Register serving as executive producer, Michael G. Stern as co-executive producer, Simon J. Smith as supervising producer, and Steven Fink of Bang Zoom Ltd. also producing.
