From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, two-part animated movie Batman: The Long Halloween begins with Part One on June 22, which is being followed by Part Two in the Fall.

Here’s the rest of the main voice cast for The Long Halloween Part One:

Batman: The Long Halloween Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen (Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent) in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.”
