She-Ra and the Princess of Power
A much-discussed reboot, Dreamworks TV shared the first trailer for the first season of Netflix's animated She-Ra and the Princess of Power with NYCC attendees and also dropped the footage online. The series stars Adora (Aimee Carrero) as the legendary Princess of Power, with the trailer showing her reveal her true identity to warriors of The Great Rebellion in an effort to build trust with them so they can collectively protect Etheria by taking down The Evil Horde. The cast also confirmed at the panel that LGBTQ characters will be included on She-Ra, but fans will likely have to tune in on November 16th to see which ones they will be.
Ahead of Titans' premiere this weekend on DC Universe, the digital service debuted the latest trailer for the series. The first trailer made waves by featuring Robin (Brenton Thwaites) say "F*** Batman" very early on and its been a polarizing property ever since. There is some recycled footage featured, but also more of a focus on Raven (Teagan Croft) and her origin. We also get to see Starfire (Anna Diop) in action, as well as Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) trapped in a cage and then transformed into a tiger. DC has since confirmed Titans has already been renewed for a second season, meaning this certainly won't be the last trailer we see for the original series.
DC Universe also debuted a teaser trailer for their Harley Quinn animated series. While Margot Robbie has made her a favorite in the DCEU, it will be The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco who voices Harley in the series. The teaser makes it abundantly clear what type of show this is going to be, with Harley breaking the fourth wall and making mainstream media jokes that position her to be DC's Deadpool. The trailer only features Poison Ivy and a brief cameo by Batman, but Cuoco will be joined by a talented voice cast that includes Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Diedrich Bader, Tony Hale, and Chris Meloni.
NYCC is much more about TV trailers than those for movies, but Universal still brought a brand new trailer for Mortal Engines as part of the film's big showcase panel. The new footage continues to put the focus on the imaginative world at the center of the film, while also trying to set up the lead character Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). She is paired up with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) as they try to take down the evil head of London's Guild of Historians, Thaddeus Valentine (Hugo Weaving). The trailer drop came online while the NYCC panel, moderated by Andy Serkis, debuted 25 minutes of footage we were on hand to see. Peter Jackson is producing the movie which is hoping to be the start of a new franchise once it launches in December.
