Freedom Fighters The Ray CW Seed Warner bros release

Freedom Fighters: The Ray is a feature-length presentation of the CW Seed animated series starring an openly gay DC Comics character. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Blue Ribbon Content, and DC Entertainment, fans will be able to own the upcoming animated film on August 28, 2018!

I enjoyed watching the CW Seed animated series starring The Ray and I am glad he is getting a home entertainment release. On August 28, 2018, Freedom Fighters: The Ray will be available for you to own on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $19.98 SRP, on DVD for $18.94 SRP and Digital.

Here’s the official synopsis:

All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying Super Hero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this Super Hero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a Super Hero – The Ray. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!

Freedom Fighters: The Ray features a stellar voice cast led by out queer actor Russell Tovey as The Ray/Ray Terrill. He is joined by Jason Mitchell as Black Condor/John Trujillo, Dilshad Vadsaria as Phantom Lady/Jenny Knight, Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) as Overgirl, and Megalyn Echikunwoke as Vixen.
