DC Super Hero Girls is set to premiere this International Women's Day, March 8, with a one-hour special titled Sweet Justice.

See the full trailer here:

Starting from a superhero action figure franchise and into a series of webisodes by Warner Bros. and DC, it is now to be adapted as an official animated series at Cartoon Network by 'My Little Pony' creator, Lauren Faust.

Here's a full synopsis:

"The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.

"Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, but what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can’t agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all their friends, foes and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you’re a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time."

DC Super Hero Girls features the voices of Grey Griffin as Wonder Woman, Nicole Sullivan as Supergirl, Kari Wahlgren as Zatanna, Tara Strong as Batgirl, Kimberly Brooks as Bumblebee and Myrna Velasco as Green Lantern Jessica Cruz.
