One of the most iconic comics of all time is Watchmen from creators Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. In 2009 director Zack Snyder brought the characters off the page and onto the big screen with the film of the same name. After its success it brought some focus back to the comics with a sequel story arc and a new TV series adaptation that once again brought the comic to life while also treading new ground in its storytelling.

Now DC is bringing the story to their hit animated film collection with a two-part film kicking off with the aptly titled Watchmen: Chapter I from Batman: Death in the Family and Batman: Under the Red Hood director Brandon Vietti. The features includes a great voice cast including Matthew Rhys, Katee Sackhoff, Titus Welliver, Troy Baker, Adrienne Barbeau, Corey Burton, Michael Cerveris, Jeffrey Combs, Grey DeLisle, Kelly Hu,  John Marshall Jones, Max Koch, Phil LaMarr, Yuri Lowenthal, Geoff Pierson, Dwight Schultz, Jason Spisak, Kari Wahlgren, and Rick D. Wasserman.

Watchman Chapter I follows an alternate world history set in 1985 where the murder of a government sponsored superhero draws his outlawed colleagues out of retirement and into a mystery that threatens to upend their personal lives and the world itself.

In addition to the film this release will offer up bonus content including featurettes on the history of this iconic story and bringing it to animated life. Witness the first part of the story when Watchmen: Chapter I hits digital on August 13th and then on 4K and Blu-ray on August 27th with Chapter II hitting later in 2024.
