Monstrous creatures, devious enemies and incredible underwater adventures populate Aquaman: King of Atlantisan action-packed miniseries coming now on digital and DVD ($14.99 SRP in the US; $19.99 in Canada) as an animated feature on June 21, 2022 with the kind permission from Warner Bros. HomeEntertainment.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the miniseries premiered on HBO Max on October 14 to rave reviews from critics and fans. James Wan (Aquaman) served as an executive producer through his production company Atomic Monster on this playful reimagining of the iconic DC Super Hero and tells an original story about Aquaman’s early adventures as King of Atlantis.
Aquaman: King of Atlantis starts with Aquaman starting his first day on the job as King of Atlantis – and he’s got a lot of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisers to back him up: the scholarly Vulko and Mera, the water-controlling warrior princess. Between facing unscrupulous surface dwellers, ancient evils from beyond time, and his own half-brother out to overthrow him, Aquaman must rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects – and himself – even – that he is the true heir to the throne, and holder of the trident!

Also providing voices is Chris Jai Alex, Trevor Devall, Armen Taylor, Kaitlyn Robrock, Regi Davis, Ludi Lin, Robbie Daymond, Erica Lindbeck, Laila Berzins and Erica Ash.
Victor Courtright (Howl of the ThunderCats!) and Marly Halpern Graser (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) served as showrunners and co-executive producers. Courtright and Marly Halpern-Graser crafted the miniseries/movie story, and Halpern-Graser, Bryan Condon (Right now Kapow) and Laura Sreebny (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) co-wrote the teleplay. The miniseries was produced by James Wan (Aquaman), Atomic Monster Michael Clair (Annabelle Comes Home), Rob Hackett (Swamp Thing) and Register (The Teen Titans go!).
