LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adam West and Burt Ward are reprising their respective roles as Batman and Robin, but they won’t have to don tights this time around.

The actors are voicing the characters in the animated film “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” out this fall. Julie Newmar will also return as Catwoman.

The movie’s colorful style will recall the campy aesthetic of the 1960s live-action “Batman” TV series starring West and Ward.

A jokey trailer posted Wednesday on Entertainment Weekly’s site featured West’s Batman announcing that the dynamic duo will face “Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman on earth — and in space.”

The “Batman” TV series originally ran from 1966 to 1968

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is scheduled to release the film digitally Oct. 11 and on Blu-ray on Nov. 1.
