‘Aquaman: King of Atlantis’ on Digital and DVD April 26

The HBO Original animated mini-series comes home as a feature-length movie; that tale of Aquaman’s first adventures as King of Atlantis starts off with Day 1 on the job… and he’s got a lot of catching up to do.

On April 26, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings the HBO Original animated mini-series Aquaman: King of Atlantis to Digital and DVD as a feature-length animated film. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the series premiered on HBO in October 2021.

A reimagining of the iconic DC Super Hero that tells an original tale about Aquaman’s first adventures as King of Atlantis. The story begins with Aquaman, his first day on the job as king of Atlantis, and he’s got a lot of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up: the scholar Vulko, and Mera, the water controlling warrior princess. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time, and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman must rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects – and to himself – that he’s the true heir to the throne, and holder of the trident!
