It was first introduced in 1962.

However, the studio has not released the rest of cast details yet but the sources suggest that the studio hopes to set an A-list cast to voice the other two and four legged heroes and villains in DC League of Super-Pets.

The movie is directed and written by Jared Stern along with Sam Levine who serves as the co-director. In addition to voicing the main character, Johnson is also producing the movie through his Seven Bucks production along with his partners Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. John Requa, Glenn Ficarra and Nicholas Stoller will serve as executive producers.
