CCRO: WHAT MADE BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES SO ICONIC?

Published

on

Everyone’s favorite Caped Crusaders thundered into the Ontario Convention Center last Saturday as the Batman: The Animated Series Reunion Panel began.

The panel featured the legendary casting and voice director Andrea Romano, voice actress Diane Pershing (Poison Ivy), and of course, the dynamic duo themselves, Kevin Conroy (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and Loren Lester (Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing)

The panel consisted of each guest sharing some of their favorite episodes and moments from the series. Conroy notes that his favorite project was “Mask of the Phantasm”, the theatrical film based on the series. “It’s the best Batman movie ever made.” said Conroy, explaining that it was the first time in the series continuity that we got a clear look into the past and inner turmoil of Bruce Wayne. Diane Pershing notes that her favorite moment was from an episode titled “Harley and Ivy” in which Poison Ivy takes Harley Quinn after the manically abusive Joker casts her aside.

Pershing noted that she’s had so many women come up to her at conventions telling their own tragic stories of overcoming abuse by a man in their past and that seeing Ivy tell Harley to stand up to Joker was an empowering moment for each of them. 

The guests also shared their own advice and insight into the voice acting industry. Conroy noted that the life of an actor is not to be taken lightly, especially in animation since you’re never guaranteed a second day of work; Each day is a new contract. Romano encourages that aspiring voiceover artists take acting classes and remember first and foremost that voice acting is acting. 

Batman: The Animated Series is available for streaming in its entirety on Amazon Prime Video.

The 8 Episode Series Tries To Encompass A Lot Leaving Fans In A Cliffhanger.

Published

The 2010 “Avatar: The Last Airbender” movie by M. Night Shyamalan faced criticism for its deviations from the beloved animated series. The film struggled with pacing, casting, and a lackluster script, disappointing fans who cherished the source material. In contrast, the 2024 Netflix series has generated positive buzz for its commitment to diverse casting, adherence to the original storyline, and improved character development. The series seems poised to capture the essence of the animated show, offering a fresh and faithful adaptation that resonates with both new and existing fans.

Even though the Netflix series comes closer to the core ideals of the animated series, I feel it lacks heart. Many scenes barely scratch the surface of the relationships between the characters and the push-and-pull relationship between Aang and Zuko. I will admit the CG versions of Momo and Appa are just so gosh darn cute.

The 8 episode series tries to encompass a lot leaving fans in a cliffhanger. It’s worth a watch and I am hanging on for the next season to be announced.
