It all depends on the execution ;).

Well, to be fair, you can say that about most things...

One of my favorite quotes from a Marvel comics writer who was kvetching about continuity and that his critics were harping on it went something like: "Continuity is unimportant in pursuit of a good story." I agreed 100% but that his story and its execution were far from that threshold.

James Mosley II is also helping produce the movie (it's in the Instagram page description). Posted this photo from a Warner Media event with the Merry Little Batman logo on a panel.

“Merry Little Batman”

Billed as “an animated family action comedy destined to join the rogue’s gallery of classic holiday movies,” a sneak peek excerpt has six-year-old Damian Wayne alone in Wayne Manor as two thieves creep in to case the joint, but gasping in horror as they see Batman at the top of the stairs. It is, in fact, Damian perched on top of a giant vase, grinning with glee.

I'm curious to see how they characterize Damian in this...

lmao, definitely has a Home Alone vibe. But with Damien wonder how much they will push the envelope yet still keep it a family comedy.

When I think of how Damian started when he was introduced in the comics, I would say those crooks in this special will be getting off easy.

I hope they don't tone down or kiddify his personality. I want the arrogant little brat :p.

Love your avatar. Number 3 (I know it's Numbuh but I rather spell it normally) is my favorite female character from any CN original. :)
With Disney+ adding Anime in Japan and with CN and WBA producing new Anime and Action Cartoons, Paramount needs to do something to compete with Disney, Warner Bros, Netflix, AMC Networks and especially Sony in the Anime Market either buying an Anime Distributor, create a alliance with a Anime Studio or producing Anime in-house with a Anime Studio providing the animation production
