Holy Lego Cartoon Series, Batman!

Lego Batman

Batman will be hitting the TV again, and I’m not talking about The Batman here. Instead, Traveller’s Tales, developers of all those great Lego games will be handling this. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about a Lego Batman cartoon series by a video game developer! Awesome!

“We’re looking to do… a Lego Batman series. I think they’re looking at doing a one-off initially,” Rich Earl, producer at TT said. The series will use the game’s engine itself, and the characters will animated fresh from Maya.

Earl claims that this will be quite different, and that’s totally fine by me. Traveller’s Tales earlier announced that they had their minds on a TV cartoon series, but did not mention any specifics. This news confirms that a 20-minute Batman cartoon will be on, and hopefully make its way to its own series!

I hope LucasArts looks at this and decides that a Lego Star Wars TV series will be worth its salt. Hell, from what I can tell, that might even end up better than that battlefest kid’s show The Clone Wars. Well, it’s not that bad, but a Lego Star Wars TV series might end up somewhere. Or not.

New Star Wars movie on August 15th, no really!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

If you thought that the Star Wars line of movies died in 2005, leaving the franchise with games, books and other media – think again. Lucas will be kicking off the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series with a full-fledged theater movie – yes the big sort. It’s titled Star Wars: The Clone Wars and will be an animation feature, much in the vein of the TV series.
