Western Animation / Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld

Go To

A seven-episode fifteen minute mini-series based on the comic book series of the same name that ran on the DC Nation block as in-betweens of the main shows.

The shorts follow main protagonist, Amy, who in this version is a computer nerd who makes her own video games. After failing to get past the last level (much to her frustration) one of the characters within the game suddenly calls out to her calling her Amethyst. Suddenly she finds herself whisked away to Gemworld, given a major transformation and told that she is both the princess and the hero of the world that was meant to save it from the tyrannical Dark Opal and his forces. While reluctant, Amy realizes the only way back to her world is to defeat Opal and thus sets out on a quest to do so.

Was meant to be showcased when the block first premiered. But was delayed considerably until finally premiering on January 5, 2013. While the short run time means there's not much is done to explore just what the relationship is between Amy and Princess Amethyst (the entire series lasts less than ten minutes), the shorts nonetheless have been received positively with many fans trying to convince DC to make it into a full-fledged series.

All seven shorts have been uploaded to Youtube and can be watched here.
