Saint Walker & Manhunters to Have Prevalent Roles in GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES

A few more details have emerged for the Cartoon Network series from DC Entertainment and executive producer Bruce Timm.
"[The animated series] doesn't follow the direct continuity of the [live-action] movie or 'First Flight' or anything that we've done before, but it doesn't contradict them either. They're all pretty consistent in terms of Hal Jordan being the Green Lantern and so forth, so hopefully by the time our show comes on, people will have seen the 'Green Lantern' movie — several times, hopefully — and they'll know the backstory, so we can go off from there."
So says Bruce Timm, the producer behind the windfall of animated films and cartoon series featuring characters from DC Comics. Though not many details have been revealed regarding the CG series (Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund is voicing one of the villains), ComicsContinuum.com have managed to uncover a few interesting tidbits:
- The Manhunters will play a significant role in the second half of the first season.
- Although episodes are individual in nature, there will be larger arcs to the show.
- The CG look of the show will be sylized, rather than a realistic approach of humans.
- Look for the show to open with a two-part episode.
- Saint Walker will appear in the first season. Sinestro likely will not appear, especially not as a villain.
Green Lantern: The Animated Series is set to debut on Cartoon Network in 2011, to coincide with the live-action film starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Strong and Black Lively.
