SDCC; Tiny Toons Looniversity, Rick and Morty :The Anime, Invincible, Lazarus and More

San Deigo Comic-Con (SDCC)
is one of the key events in the pop-culture calendar. And while a number of the biggest names have decided to sit this year out, there are still a lot who did not. A whole slate of new trailers has been released, that have rounded up for you here- because we're awesome like that.  Revealed at various panels throughout the four-day event, there's plenty to get stuck into.

Tiny Toons Looniversity

The reboot of 90's fave Tiny Toon Adventures is around the corner. To give you a taster of the new version, Cartoon Network has released the theme song (sadly region-locked to the US). Fans of the original will recognise the original tune, this time with updated lyrics. Tiny Toons Looniversity comes to Cartoon Network and Max later this year.

Rick and Morty: The Anime

Adult Swim previewed the new anime spin-off of their biggest show. The video gives us a first look at the opening sequence from the series, plus an introduction from writer/director Takashi Sano, who is producing the show at Telecom Animation.


Adult Swim also released the first trailer for their upcoming anime co-production with Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo creator Shinichiro Watanabe. Animated by acclaimed anime studio MAPPA, with action choreography by John Wick's  Chad Stahelski, this is looking very impressive indeed.

Invincible Season 2

Fans have been waiting a long time, but the second season of Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley's ultraviolent superhero saga is nearly here. The second season picks up where the first left off, with our hero Invincible (aka Mark Grayson) on a collision course with his father. aka Omni-Man.  New episodes arrive from November 4 on Amazon Prime. A special episode, Invincible: Atom Eve has also been released.

Harley Quinn Season 4

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are trying to make the switch from supervillain to superhero in the 4th season of Max's adult animated comedy. The show is very much R-rated and so is this trailer, which is full of bloody violence and the most salty of language. Harley Quinn returns July 27.

Star Trek Lower Decks Season 4

Paramount+'s sci-fi comedy is also back for a fourth season. Expect more space-faring adventures mixed with comedy. Mariner, Boimler and co will meet more alien races and boldly go where no Star Trek show has gone before.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match

For the next in Warner Bros's straight to home video/digital movies based on Mortal Kombat there's a big change in tone. This movie, which centres on movie star Johnny Cage has a more overtly comedic/satirical tone. It doesn't look like it will be skimping on the ultra violence the franchise is known for, however. The film features the voices of Joel McHale, Jennifer Grey and in one of his last performances Gilbert Gottfried.
