Spoilers

The quirky adventure may have connections to the live movie that was released in 2018, however, it isn't in the same universe. In the miniseries, Aquaman will have his hands full as he attempts to defend Atlantis, as Ocean Master (Snyder) tries to steal the throne. 

The official synopsis reads: "The three-part animated mini-series event begins with Aquaman's first day on the job as king of Atlantis and he's got a LOT of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up – Vulko the scholar and Mera the water-controlling warrior princess. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time, and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he's the right man for the trident!"
