Prime Video has finally released the official Merry Little Batman trailer for its upcoming DC holiday animated movie, featuring Damian Wayne suiting up as the Dark Knight to save Christmas from Joker. It is scheduled to make its debut on December 8.
The video opens with Batman maintaining Gotham as a crime-free city for the holidays. It highlights the father-and-son duo of Bruce Wayne and Damian Wayne, who received his very first utility belt as a Christmas Gift. However, their holiday plans don’t go as planned, when Batman has to leave Damian for a special Justice League mission. While Batman is away, the Joker uses this opportunity to steal Christmas from Gotham.
