Long thread on the importance of buying official toys for US animated shows, using #GLTAS & YJ as an example. – made as a reaction to folk balking at the Voltron Paladin toys and an article indicating a little executive meddling to bolster VLD merch sales. [source]
Feeling lost after marathoning Voltron and don’t know what to now do with your life?
Feeling the need for more tv about fun space families?
Wanna see more of Josh Keaton as a Space Dad™?
May I present:
YOU GET NOT ONE:
ANGRY SPACE BUNNY
ANGEL BABY SWEETHEART AI
YOU GET FANTASTIC STORIES AND WONDERFUL CHARACTER AND RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT HEADED BY JIM KRIEG (creator Spooksville, writer on multiple DC animated products) AND GIANCARLO VOLPE (director on ATLA and Star Wars: The Clone Wars)*
YOU GET GORGEOUS ANIMATION
“But Annica,” you say, “I don’t know anything about the Green Lantern mythos or DC. I won’t understand any of it!”
You won’t need to know the background! The story accessible and easy for anyone who doesn’t have background on Green Lantern. You might miss a few easter eggs within the series, but plot and character wise, you won’t be left out of the loop.
“But I’m not a huge fan of 3D animation on tv shows” you say.
Once upon a time, I was very much in you position, and I will admit, at the beginning, it may seem a big jarring, but honestly the animation fits very well with the series and it grows to be absolutely gorgeous and you’ll soon stop noticing the initial difference that was throwing you off.
“But Hal Jordan is a jerk!”
Oooooooooh yes he is. Normally. Believe you me I am aware. Normally at least - however this version of Hal Jordan, while at times cocky, has wonderful development and becomes a very likeable character. All the characters are written in ways that, even if you don’t like them, you will sympathise with them at points (hell even some of the villains).
So basically what I’m trying to say is
Go watch Green Lantern: The Animated Series
(*you may also get tears. Just saying it now so you don’t hate on me later)
Come on Fanterns! We can’t give up hope! Young Justice managed to achieve the unthinkable, their show was brought back on Netflix and is revived for the new season they’ve long been waiting for!
Let us follow their example, we loved the show Green Lantern The Animated Series! Let’s try to get it back on Netflix, and with any luck, we can get ourselves uncancelled and renewed for another season like Young Justice did.
Our show was unjustly cancelled before it could finish telling it’s story. The characters, writing, animation, acting, music…it was all unforgettable and beautifully done. But their story is not over yet. Let’s show Warner Brothers, Netflix and DC comics there is still a strong and dedicated audience of fans who love and support this show, and hopefully create even more new fans as well. Help us bring this amazing show back.
Please spread this around to as many people you can and please sign it. We can do this guys!
“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!”-Green Lantern’s oath.
