Posted Wed Mar 1, 2017 at 06:00 AM PST by

The DC Comics animated feature is set to arrive on Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'Vixen: The Movie' for Blu-ray on May 23.

VIXEN: The Movie combines the first two seasons of the CW Seed digital series into a single uniform story, and includes 15 minutes of all-new, never-before-seen content. The special features include a brand new featurette, and two Vixen-focused episodes of Justice League Unlimited, handpicked by Bruce Timm.

Produced by Warner Bros.' digital studio Blue Ribbon Content, VIXEN: The Movie features Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI Miami, The 4400, Damien) as the voice of Vixen/Mari McCabe. She is joined by the voices of Stephen Amell (Green Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon), Katie Cassidy (Black Canary), Victor Garber (Martin Stein) & Franz Drahmeh (Jax) collectively as Firestorm, and Brandon Routh (The Atom), reprising their roles from Arrow, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe grew up an orphan after her parents were killed by local greed, corruption and wanton violence. But Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals...anything from the strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.

"VIXEN: The Movie gives fans the action sequences and the characters that they all fell in love with in Arrow and The Flash," said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. "We are very excited to release VIXEN: The Movie for fans of the hit series and DC collectors, featuring never-before-seen content available exclusively to owners of the Blu-ray or DVD."

The release will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 audio, and supplements include: Vixen: Spirit Animal featurette and Bruce Timm's Top Picks: Episodes from Justice League Unlimited, "Hunter's Moon" and "Grudge Match"
