First Look at Lauren Faust’s Redesigned DC Super Hero Girls

Faust is best known for her work in reviving the My Little Pony property with the massively popular television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The series will be executive produced by Warner Bros. Animation chief Sam Register, who is currently in charge of running Cartoon Network series Teen Titans GO! and Justice League Action. A Teen Titans GO! movie, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, is slated to hit theaters on July 27.
The DC Super Hero Girls franchise kicked off back in 2015 with a web series that followed the adventures of younger versions of Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Katana and Bumblebee, both as superheroes and students. Both the rebooted series and the original webisodes are targeted at young girls.
The rebooted series looks to focus on a slightly different crew of heroes, placing new relevance on characters introduced in the previous series. The DC Super Hero Girls reboot will follow Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz as they figure out what it means to be heroes growing up.
Faust is also the creator of one of my all time favorite superhero shorts from DC NATION - Super Best Friends Forever. I love the way the three girls are characterized with Wonder Girl being the responsible, regal one. Supergirl is the brawler with a quick temper who doesn't like to follow the rules and Batgirl is the goofy, insanely brave one with all the gadgets.
