Really, Cartoon Network… do your research first!
Arella looks very little like her daughter.
Arella is curvy, Raven originally had a dancer’s body
Arella has curly hair, Raven has gentle waves
Both are tall and have great legs, though.
But nooo, Cartoon Network made Arella into an older version of her kid. Not cool dude, not cool.
In general, the cartoon has only influence from the comics. The Y-7 television show known as Teen Titans was meant to be a very loose adaptation of The New Teen Titans. While the cartoon does bare resemblance to the comics that inspired it, it is not an animated version of the comic books and is an entirely different canon/universe.
Adding m own views: …er… In the cartoon, Arella actually looked thinner and has a taller build than her daughter.
Her facial features barely look ANYTHING like Raven’s.
And I thought her facial features were so beautifully adapted from the comics…~
(Technically, Raven didn’t “originally” have a dancer’s body in the books - she started much curvier, and as the months went on, she DEVELOPED more of a dancer’s body. *Originally* was the wrong word. But now I’m just nit-picking…)
both still have great legs though
