Green Lantern: The Animated Series, currently part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block (Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT), is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and animation legend Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series; DC Universe Animated Original Movies). The two-disc DVD set featuring the first 13 episodes of the CG-animated action series will be available on August 28, 2012 for $19.97 SRP.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series — Rise of the Red Lanterns (Season 1 Part 1) follows Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps on a treacherous journey through deep space. As Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal must face down an invasion from the villainous Red Lantern Corps, who will stop at nothing to destroy and silence the Green Lantern Corps forever. Joined by his former drill sergeant Kilowog, and several all-new heroes, Hal brings the cosmic battle against the forces of evil to the far reaches of the galaxy. Equipped with a new squad and new spacecraft, The Inceptor, Hal and the team set out to protect the universe — and the Green Lantern Corps itself!



“Green Lantern: The Animated Series has really taken us into a realm we hadn’t explored before: our first completely CG-animated series,” enthuses Sam Register, Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, at Warner Bros. Animation. “Like Teen Titans and Batman: The Animated Series, it’s an incredible, groundbreaking action series, combining the legendary instincts of Emmy®-winning executive producer Bruce Timm and the incredible artistry of WBA’s CG animators. It’s a beautifully rendered, epic space adventure with a scale that’s simply breathtaking.”

“With the release of the live-action movie last summer and the wildly popular Cartoon Network series, Green Lantern mania is at an all-time high,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President of Family and Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. “Warner Bros. Animation is known for creating outstanding animated series, and we are thrilled to be able to bring these new super hero adventures to DVD.”

Executive produced by Sam Register (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Ben 10), and Bruce Timm, Green Lantern: The Animated Series is produced by Giancarlo Volpe (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Jim Krieg (Ben 10: Alien Swarm). Based upon the popular DC Comics character, the series features the voice talents of Josh Keaton as Hal Jordan, Jason Spisak as Razer, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kilowog and Grey DeLisle as Aya. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Green Lantern: The Animated Series airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) as part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block.

The Red Lanterns are nothing like he comics are they? They ride around in space ships, they talk, and they are just bad guys as opposed to anti-heroes.

Also, they censored the oath of the Red Lanterns.

Actual Oath:
With blood and rage of crimson red,
Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead,
Together with our hellish hate,
We'll burn you all--That is your fate!

Kid Friendlier Oath:
With blood and rage of crimson red,
We fill men's souls with darkest dread,
And twist your minds to pain and hate,
We'll burn you all--That is your fate!

I've been on this site for years and this is my first time commenting anything I have been reading articles about the gl sequel and they were all from like February so I thought I'd come to the most resent artical to leave my opinion in an effort to get a response that being said....

I'm a huge gl fan and I'll admit the movie wasn't great it had its flaws.. first of which was they casted the flash as Hal Jordan I think Reynolds should of played Barry Allen and casted either Ryan Gosling or Bradley Cooper for hal. Reynolds did a better job than I thought he would but gosling or cooper would have knocked out of the park in my opinion . I hate reboots but they went about the movie the wrong from director to villain...... they didn't even get the suit right. If they do reboot it i hope they'd use kyle rayner and not start the whole hal jordan story again like they did superman 5 times again im not for the reboot but if it happens thats the way id do it.I liked the movie It was entertaining it just wasnt what i was hoping for I hope they give gl a chance to redeem its self but I don't want green lantern to turn into the dang xmen franchise where the just keep makeing them hoping theyll finally get one right. And if there is a sequel I hope its done right and hopefully keep the same main actors Reynolds and Strong anyways I hate when they change a main character in the sequel like the damn terminator movies . I want more space scenes more sinestro and maybe a in little cross over with another hero setting up the JLA...

GL the animated series is better than what the movie could've been. I was expecting a lot from the movie, but honestly it was disappointing. Oa looked like something out of a video game, it looked so cheesy and rushed. Oa should have looked as realistic and awesome as Asgard in Thor. - - Mark Strong as Sinstro was honestly the only strength within the entire movie. It's sad, considering how he had minimal screen time and little development.
