Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.)

As we start another week under the restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic we though we all needed something to smile about. So today we’re taking a deep dive on the amazing opening sequence from Warner Bros. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

The sequence is the work of Warner Bros. Animation and comes from the minds of animators Peter Rida Michail, Liz Marhsall, Matthew Girardi, Mac Whiting, Shane Glines, Hayk Manukyan, Jonathan Renoni and Noel Belknap.

The sequence recaps the history of Harleen Quinzel, including some of the events witnessed in Suicide Squad before bringing us up to date, ready for the film to begin. Check out this gallery of screen shots from the sequence in all its glory!

Hayk Manukyan has also released a short showreel of his animatics on YouTube which you can watch here.

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. The movie will be directed by Cathy Yan.
