Green Lantern: Emerald Knights
17 October 2013
Excerpt: "With stories by acclaimed writers including Geoff Johns, Alan Burnett and Dave Gibbons, this DC Universe Animated Original Movie explores the rich mythology of the Green Lantern universe through six interlocking chapters. While awaiting a battle with Krona, an ancient enemy of the Guardians of the Universe, Earth’s Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Kilowog, Sinestro and other members of the Green Lantern Corps recount their greatest adventures to new recruit Arisia – everything...
Excerpt: A very big, very ancient, very evil force named Krona has re-appeared in space. Obviously, this is a problem that demands the services of the Green Lantern Corps. The Guardians of the Universe (the little blue guys who run the GLC) are forced to evacuate their home planet Oa and gather the entire forces of the Corps to prepare them for battle with Krona.
Excerpt: The Movie Set in the days when Hal Jordan still wore the mask and before Sinestro went rogue, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is The Ringed Wonder's second direct-to-video animated adventure, but unlike 2009's straightforward Green Lantern: First Flight , this is an anthology of different vignettes.
Conclusion: 'Green Lantern: Emerald Knights' is a wonderful collection of cosmic parables that demonstrate what it really means to be a hero. The video and audio are both strong and supplements are pretty good. Those looking for a good introduction to these characters before the live action blockbuster hits screens, should definitely consider giving this a rent. Fans should be happy. Recommended.

Many are wondering whether Warner Bros.
