The series is being bundled together on digital and DVD formats, and will be available for $19.99 when it releases next month. The series, which was produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Saw director James Wan (Aquaman) attached as executive producer, tells the story of Aquaman starting his first day as king of Atlantis, and the many adventures that he has to go through in the process.
Aquaman: King of Atlantis premiered on HBO Max on October 14, 2021, and ran for three episodes, totaling 45 minutes.
Described as a playful reimagining of the iconic superhero, Aquaman: King of Atlantis features the voices of Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) as Aquaman, Gillian Jacobs (Community) as Mera, Thomas Lennon (Reno 911) as Vulko, and Dana Snyder (Jellystone!) as Ocean Master.
“The three-part event begins on Aquaman’s 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 advisors to back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess,” reads the official synopsis. “Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the throne!”
