Batman: Death in the Family interactive movie puts Robin’s fate in your hands
In 1988, DC Comics told fans that “Robin will die because the Joker wants revenge. But you can choose to save it. For the classic A death in the family screenplay by Jim Starlin and artist Jim Aparo, readers called a number 1-900 and sentenced Jason Todd to death. But now fans will have the option to make different choices.
Via IGN, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced a new interactive animated film, Batman: Death in the Family. It’s a prequel to the animated adaptation of Batman: Under the Red Hood, the story that brought Jason Todd back to life as Red Hood. Bruce Greenwood and John DiMaggio will reprise their roles as Batman and Joker. In addition, Vincent Martella will take over the role of young Jason.
Here’s the official description for Warner Bros .:
“The interactive Blu-ray presentation offers viewers many different ways to tell the story of Batman: Death in the Family, with many twists and turns in the middle and multiple possible endings. Choices along the way give more weight to viewers’ decisions and result in even stronger stories.
Produced, directed and written by Brandon Vietti, Batman: Death in the Family offers an inventive take on the much-requested story. In the new animated presentation, the infamous murder of Batman protege Jason Todd will be called off, and the fates of Batman, Robin and The Joker will shockingly unfold as viewers make multiple choices to control the story. And while Batman: Under the Red Hood provides a baseline, the story also branches out in new directions and features several characters never seen in the original film.
Batman: Death in the Family will be released on Blu-ray and digital this fall. You can watch the first trailer below.
