There are plenty of upcoming DC movies and shows on the way, but most of them are very much aimed at older viewers. Luckily, the studio hasn’t forgotten its younger fans, and has announced a new animated pre-school show titled Batwheels.
The series is an “animated action-adventure comedy series” and will air on Cartoon Network and HBO Max in the US, as well as globally across all Cartoon Network platforms. Rather than focus on superheroes themselves, Batwheels will center on a team of heroic vehicles, which help the likes of Batman, Robin, and Batgirl fight crime and defend Gotham City. DC states that Batwheels is now in production, but a release date has not been announced yet.
The official synopsis for the show reads, “Having just been created by the Batcomputer, our heroes are essentially kids with little to no life experience. Led by Bam (The Batmobile), the Batwheels–Bibi (The Batgirl Cycle), Red (The Redbird), Jett (The Batwing) and Buff (The Bat Truck)–must navigate the growing pains 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 kids the value of self-confidence, friendship and teamwork.”
