Just when TV couldn't get any more awesome, LEGO Batman enters the field. The cartoon show will be based on the actual games engine from TT.
The production will be handled by "a separate studio in the States," according to producer Rich Earl. Traveller's Tales is a UK developer studio with Hollywood ties.
"We're looking to do... a LEGO Batman series," Earl told at Leipzig's Game Convention.
"I think they're looking at doing a one-off initially; and they're basically able to utilise the assets, because our team has brought Lego characters to life."
No kidding Earl. LEGO Star Wars was a tremendous success and a guilty pleasure for many seasoned gamers too, not just snot nosed kids.
Then LEGO Indiana Jones came whipping his way into gamers' hearts recently. LEGO has reached new heights thanks to Traveller's Tales.
"My understanding is that they will use the engine, the Maya files where the characters come to life, but they'll be creating animated... I think it's a 20-minute cartoon," continued Earl.
"I'm personally quite intrigued to see how it comes out. LEGO, every time they've had a new brand out, they've done some CGI stuff as well, but I think this will be quite different."
LEGO Batman is due this autumn on all major consoles and PC.
