Storyline

On Oa, the headquarters planet of the intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps, the Guardians of the Universe see alarming evidence that the feared villain, Krona, is coming to destroy the planet. While the Guardians move to evacuate, Green Lantern Hal Jordan helps the unsure new recruit, Arisia, by telling her several stories of fellow Lanterns and the challenges they faced. Through him, we see the adventures of Avra the first Lantern, Princess Laira, Kilowog, the unsociable Mogo and Jordan's immediate predecessor, Abin Sur. When Krona arrives, those stories prove more valuable than anyone expects as Arisia draws a special inspiration from them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Did You Know?

Trivia

Two of the segments are based on the stories of Alan Moore: "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" and "Tygers". Only the illustrators, Dave Gibbons and Kevin O'Neil receive screen credit for the original work, as was the case for Gibbons on the screen adaptation of Watchmen. This is because Moore, displeased by earlier adaptations of his stories, now typically refuses to be credited for subsequent ones. See more »

Quotes

Laira: [to Kentor] I came here hoping that Ree'yu and Rubyn were responsible for Jayd's atrocities, hoping that you were still the man that once tucked his daughter in at night, but you are no longer that man, and I am a Green Lantern.

Nice Little Film
8 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is WB and DC doing a little warm-up for the big budget movie on Green Lantern that is coming out this month.

As always, the Animation Team probably has a better grasp on the characters and settings than the suits in Hollywood ever do.

The Green Lantern Corps faces an inter-dimensional threat, and while they wait for the final confrontation, they tell stories of the greatest accomplishments of the Corps.

The movie is probably at its weakest in the fact that they have Nathan Fillian of "Firefly" fame doing the voice of Hal Jordan (Why isn't he doing it in the Live Action version? Why?) but he is only involved in the wrap around story that keeps the plot moving from one section to the next.

The stories themselves are quite good, though. Each one a little gem, even if a bit predictable even for the fan who is familiar with this universe.
