This holiday season, Prime Video is set to captivate audiences with the release of Merry Little Batman, an animated family action comedy that promises to become a timeless addition to the classic holiday movie roster. Scheduled for exclusive streaming on Prime Video starting December 8, 2023, this heartwarming tale is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and brings together a stellar cast to deliver a superheroic twist on a Christmas adventure.

Directed by Mike Roth, known for his work on Regular Show, and featuring a screenplay by Morgan Evans and Jase Ricci, Merry Little Batma boasts an ensemble voice cast, including Luke Wilson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Yonas Kibreab as Damian Wayne, James Cromwell as Alfred Pennyworth, and David Hornsby as the Joker.

The official trailer, released ahead of the premiere on December 8, provides a sneak peek into the festive chaos that unfolds in Gotham City.

Batman: Caped Crusader will no doubt continue that tradition, and, alongside Merry Little Batman and Bat-Family, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Warner Bros. Animation to offer a variety of takes on the Batman mythos to our global Prime Video customers.
