Amazon is doubling-down on The Dark Knight!

In addition to the previously announced two-season order for Matt Reeves, J.J. Abrams and Bruce Timm’s animated Batman: Caped Crusader series, the streamer has picked up an original animated film, Merry Little Batman, and a spin-off series titled Bat-Family.

“Batman: The Animated Series helped pioneer in the evolution of superhero storytelling and defined the Dark Knight for a generation,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon and MGM Studios. “Batman: Caped Crusader will no doubt continue that tradition and, alongside Merry Little Batman and Bat-Family, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Warner Bros. Animation to offer a variety of takes of the Batman mythos to our global Prime Video customers.”

Merry Little Batman is described as "a family action-comedy that sees young Damian Wayne transforming into “Little Batman” in order to defend his home and Gotham from the villains who want to destroy the holidays."

Mike Roth (Regular Show) directs from a screenplay by Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!). Roth also executive produces alongside Warner Bros. Animation chief Sam Register.

Bat-Family, meanwhile, follows "Batman, Alfred and young Damian Wayne — who has now taken on the mantle of “Little Batman” — alongside a few newcomers to Wayne Manor as they navigate the fun and frustrations of life as a super family."

Jase Ricci, Mike Roth and Register executive produce the series.
