HBO Max’s Aquaman Miniseries Doesn’t Look Like Anyone Expected

aquaman: king of atlantis

Last year, we learned that one of the DC-related projects in development for HBO Max was an Aquaman-focused three-part anime. Nothing has been revealed other than that but we do notice that we’re getting an epic, undersea trident clash for power, possibly inspired by the movie or from one of the better comic books. Turns out what we got was… well…

The whole thing is a goofy comedy with purposeful grotesque art! Arthur has this nasty seahorse throne that he just can’t match! His subjects are all plump, staring mermaids who look like background characters from an Adventure Time scene! It’s an extremely sumptuous dish with noodles, beans!

If you were going to compare Aquaman: King of Atlantis with Thundercats Roar, you’re judging this without seeing it, but you’re also right: Victor Courtright, who worked on Roar, is also responsible for this one look. Marly Halpern-Graser, who made DTV’s Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, also participating. But the executive producer is James Wan, who directed the Aquaman movie, so there’s some quality control going on.

No, it’s not Jason Momoa as Aquaman (as you would think anyway), but Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) playing him. Gillian Jacobs (Community, Netflix’s LOVE) voices Mera. Thomas Lennon will play Vulko, and Dana Snyder (known as Master Shake in Aqua Teen Hunger Force) is Ocean Master.

Is this meant for children? We do not know. Just because no one swears or makes sexual jokes in the trailer doesn’t mean it’s not aimed at a wider audience. If you’re apprehensive, well, so are we, but we’re not going to review Aquaman: King of Atlantis until we can see it for ourselves. That will happen in a month… the first chapter in the trilogy will be released on October 14. There’s no word on whether the other two will appear on the same day or later.
