In Batman Ninja, the Dark Knight (voiced by Roger Craig Smith) and his friends and foes are transported to feudal Japan, with the Joker (voiced  by Tony Hale) leading the warring factions.

A new featurette (below) takes a look behind the scenes at the cultural exchange between the film's Japanese and American filmmakers to bring this unique Batman tale to the screen.

Batman Ninja is on VOD now and on DVD/blu-ray May 14th. Blu-ray and blu-ray steelbooks will include a limited edition poster of the film’s Japanese artwork.

The official synopsis reads:

Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.
