So I was really confused because like who is that ginger baby? So I did some research… APPARENTLY, THERE WERE TWO FEMALE ROBINS. LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL CARRIE KELLEY.
THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE WAS TECHNICALLY (IN EARTH 31 WHERE SHE WAS INTRODUCED) THE FIRST FEMALE ROBIN. SHE CAME BETWEEN JASON TODD AND TIM DRAKE (correct me if I’m wrong. This is just from what I’ve read.)
NOT ONLY WAS SHE THE FIRST FEMALE ROBIN TECHINALLY BUT BOTH OF HER PARENTS ARE STILL ALIVE. SHOCKING I KNOW SINCE OUR LITTLE HYPED UP ON CAFFEINE BOY TIM DRAKE IS REFERRED TO AS THE ONLY ONE WITH PARENTS STILL ALIVE.
OH WAIT THERE’S MORE! SHE WAS VOICED BY ARIEL WINTER IN “BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS” (the animated version). SO DO WHAT YOU WANT FOR THIS INFORMATION. BUT I BELIEVE CARRIE KELLEY DESERVES SOME LOVE!
i think the reason Dick Grayson looks like Carrie Kelly in the lego batman movie is because he’s supposed to symbolize a “ROBIN” not just Dick, as in the roll a robin is supposed to play as batmans partner.
And both Dick and Carrie go along side two versions of batman that are kind of polar opposites of each other. Carrie paired with Frank miller’s gritty, edgy batman and Dick paired with the silver age goofball version
And i feel like LEGO batman falls inbetween those two versions. comically dark and edgy to make fun of how he’s usually interpreted today but just as goofy as he used to be before the comics started getting unnecessarily “serious”
So a robin that’s a spiritual mix of Richard and Carrie (while obviously being his own character) is kind of perfect
