Aquaman: King of Atlantis, the upcoming three-part animated mini-series event from Aquaman director James Wan, received not only a new trailer, but also a premiere date of October 14 on HBO Max.
This new original story, which will have new episodes weekly, focuses on the early days of Aquaman’s tenure as the King of Atlantis.
“The three-part event begins on Aquaman’s first day on the job as King of Atlantis and he’s got a LOT of catching up to do,” the official description reads. “Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess.
“Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the throne!”
Aquaman: King of Atlantis’ voice cast includes The Walking Dead’s Cooper Andrews as Aquaman, Community’s Gillian Jacobs as Mera, Reno 911’s Thomas Lennon as Vulko, and Jellystone!’s Dana Snyder as Ocean Master.
ThunderCats Roar!’s Victor Courtright and Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Marly Halpern-Graser are serving as both showrunners and co-executive producers. Other executive producers include Aquaman director James Wan, Michael Clear, Rob Hackett, and Sam Register.
