Per THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, the upcoming animated Batman movie MERRY LITTLE BATMAN is going to Amazon Prime…and will be followed by a spinoff series titled BAT-FAMILY. Here’s what they’re all about according to the trade’s report…
Merry Little Batman is described as a family action-comedy that sees young Damian Wayne transforming into “Little Batman” in order to defend his home and Gotham from the villains who want to destroy the holidays. Mike Roth (Regular Show) directs the animated feature that features a screenplay by Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!). Roth also executive produces alongside Warner Bros. Animation chief Sam Register.
Spinoff series Bat-Family follows Batman, Alfred and young Damian Wayne — who has now taken on the mantle of “Little Batman” — alongside a few newcomers to Wayne Manor as they navigate the fun and frustrations of life as a superfamily. Jase Ricci, Mike Roth and Register executive produce the series.
Batman fans have been clamoring for a new animated Batman series for years, so now we’re getting two of ’em with BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER — which will be for an older audience — and BAT-FAMILY that’s aimed at kids…and adults. And of course, BOF will be covering all of this.
