A computer-animated Cartoon Network TV series based on the DC Comics superhero, Green Lantern: The Animated Series tells the story of Hal Jordan, the first human chosen to wield the power of the green ring. Despite a distressing tendency to ignore rules and disobey orders, Hal is absolutely driven to protect innocent life, even at the risk of his own good standing or personal well-being. When Atrocitus, the head of the Red Lanterns, and his henchmen Zilius Zox and Razer begin killing off Green Lanterns stationed far away from Earth in the Forgotten Zone, Hal is called to Oa to be briefed on the issue by the Guardians. With a little encouragement from one of the Guardians, Hal partners up with fellow warrior Kilowog, steals a plane called the Interceptor that comes equipped with a new prototype artificial intelligence, and heads to the Forgotten Zone to bolster the Green Lantern forces. Hal and Kilowog encounter a much larger and more devious Red Lantern contingent than anticipated, and thanks to some glitches in the Interceptor, the two Green Lanterns end up completely on their own against an entire army of Red Lanterns. Hal and Kilowog gain several unlikely allies in the Forgotten Zone, some of whom turn out to be infinitely more helpful than others, but the power of the green ring, combined with hope and an unwavering commitment to protecting the innocent, serves them well in battles against much stronger enemies. Their battles also reveal much about Guardian and Green Lantern history, the variety of life forms inhabiting the Forgotten Zone, and the relative powers of hope, love, and rage. The computer animation in this series is excellent, with a look quite similar to The Incredibles. The stories and characters are engaging, the battle sequences are exciting, and the many plot twists keep viewers guessing and excitedly anticipating the next installment of episodes. (Ages 8 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

As Earth's Green Lantern, Hall Jordan is used to being in dangerous situations- but he's never faced anything like this! Set at the farthest reaches of deep space, Green Lantern: The Animated Series finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion from the Red Lantern Corps. Powered by pure rage. The evil Red Lanterns have sworn to destroy the Green Lantern Corps and everything they stand for. Dispatched with his friend and former drill sargeant- the gruff, hulking alien Kilowog - on the experimental spacecraft The Interceptor, Hal is soon joined by an all-new group of heroes on a mission to protect Guardian Space - and the Green Lantern Corps itself!

GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES was everything I hoped it would be, and not much more, but that's actually okay. I've been almost head-over-heels in love with the DC Animated Universe since its true inception back in 1992 with BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. One of the things that is so great about this series is that it stands alongside the Bruce Timm designs of old but gives it a CG-enhancement. You get a very solid sense of three dimensions every time you look at the screen. And I don't think this would have worked quite as well being hand-drawn. It gives the incredibly gifted animators more leeway to make more interesting-looking characters and it gives you a greater sense of the vastness of space, which is where we spend most of our time with our main characters, which are Hal Jordan, Kilowog, Aya (their experimental spaceship's AI), and Razer, a Red Lantern who was betrayed and manipulated by the Red Lantern's leader Atrocitus.

The very first 1-hour episode was by far the best so far because it not only set the tone for the series, which is one of adventure with heart and intelligence and wit, but it also gave us a proper introduction to the characters involved (and also helped to remove some of the not-so-good taste left from the live-action film). The rest of the series thus far has been very distilled from the pages of Geoff Johns' work from the comics in regards to the introduction of various other groups of ring-bearers from other color spectrums. It gives us our primary foes The Red Lanterns (rage), and along the way, we meet violet (love) with the Star Sapphires and indigo (hope) with Saint Walker.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Green Lantern Needs Blu! July 11, 2012
Format:DVD
Love the series and the CGI. Don't know why folks are so hung up on the CGI. It's visually stunning and I like that DC is doing something different. What I really would like to see is this series on Blu Ray. I'll be holding off on buying this until it comes out on the Hi Def Blu Ray format which is what this deserves. I'd love to also see a new Superman series come out in this style. Batman is getting another animated interpretation so why can't the Grand Daddy of all heroes Superman get one? Get Paul Dini and Bruce Timm to gather the band back together for another "Super" tour. There are so many more Superman stories to tell! In case you were wondering about the 4 stars? I only gave this 4 stars because I feel it should be released in Blu Ray and not just dvd.

First Off, I'd just like to start this out by saying I don't rate a whole lot of things on Amazon although I do buy a whole lot of things from them, But I couldn't help rating this product when I saw that this was coming to DVD. I have a daughter who now because of this series along with Avengers, Young Justice, Ultimate Spiderman and Thunder Cats loves Saturday and Sunday morning cartoons, and she loves looking at them with me and waking me up on those days and saying Daddy it's Saturday morning cartoons wake up, which reminds me of when I was a kid and they had tons of cool cartoons on Saturday mornings back then for us to wake up to and to enjoy and I find it kind of cool that now I get to enjoy those days all over again through her eyes while helping her to build memories of her own all while I get to spend some quality time with my daughter while also enjoying those same cartoons with her. That is why I can honestly say that these type of cartoons are made for both Adults and Kids so that both of you can sit down and enjoy them together. I'm 34 and my daughter is now 4 years old and she started watching these type of cartoons when she was two years old and can now not only recognize all of these iconic DC and Marvel characters by name but I have total braging rights when were looking at the movies with these characters in them as well and she can name them off faster then her Mom can, I would definitely look into pre-odering and buying not only this cartoon but the other one's I've mentioned as well and enjoy some quality time with you kids looking at them and building some really cool memories while your at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary animated series September 14, 2012
By Nils
Format:DVD
I stumbled onto the Green Lantern animated series by accident, when searching for a clip from the GL movie on Youtube. I had low expectations, partly because it's ostensibly a series for kids, and partly because the recent GL movie was so bad, but decided to watch a part of a Youtube episode. The portions I watched on Youtube drew me in, and made me want to see more. I ended up buying the series.

Having watched the entire series, I would say it is extraordinary. The GL movie suffered from bad pacing and storytelling; the animated series excels at both. The design is good, the voice casting excellent. The story develops nicely as the episodes go by, and explores surprisingly sophisticated themes. Most of the action takes place on other worlds, but relates to conundrums faced by folks living on our world, in our century.

Each episode stands on its own, but is part of a strong story arc. Great care and design went into the series, and the characters are well developed as the season moves along. I found the series enchanting, and didn't want it to end. It has much the same innovative energy as the very first Star Wars movie, which I watched way back in the 1970s.

The elements that make Green Lantern: The Animated Series so effective mean that it can be enjoyed and appreciated both by adults and younger folks. The storylines and issues explored in the series are surprisingly adult.
