Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Aquaman: King of Atlantis is an animated miniseries about the DC superhero. Aquaman (voiced by Cooper Andrews), who was raised on land, is taking over for his half-brother, Ocean Master (Dana Snyder), in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. Expect some edgy body comedy -- like when Aquaman tries to squeeze his butt cheeks into a small throne for comic effect -- as well as romance and kissing between Aquaman and Princess Mera (Gillian Jacobs). Violence is cartoonish but includes lots of punching and kicking, use of underwater weapons, and whacks with Aquaman's golden trident. The vibe is goofy, but younger kids might be spooked by the edgy character design (some of the underwater creatures are genuinely unsettling).
Is It Any Good?
This psychedelic adventure comedy has a lot going on, but it's a fun journey, especially for the often dour and dark DC Universe. It's a breath of fresh air to see something this goofy, fun, and family-friendly, and the voice cast is clearly having a great time. It's also nice to see a superhero with a sense of humor; Aquaman wants to do his best as king and shows his vulnerability right off the bat. The trippy, in-your-face animation might be too much for some younger viewers, but fans of modern animation may find a lot to love in Atlantis.
