Thundercats Ho! (now with official image)
UPDATE: Chris here. Warner’s sent a clear, official image over to the people at Collider. Along with the image, a sysnopsis of the show.
Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C’s use of the Japanese animated artistry of anime, “ThunderCats” characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.
The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.
“ThunderCats” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”). Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”) are the producers.
I’m really, really digging the look of the show. So far, no Snarf or the Twins. I’m very curious to see Mum-Ra through. But the core group is just, awesome. I’m glad that there will be a new generation of kids that will be getting the tingles from Cheetara. She did start the furrie revolution you know.
Some remember the beloved 80s cartoon Thundercats. If you have ever watched Thundercats you probably remember and have chanted the popular line “Thunder…Thunder…Thundercats Ho!” And now a new generation will get to experience the wonder that is Thundercats.
A new Thundercats cartoon is in the works courtesy of Cartoon Network. A very blurry picture taken at the London Toy Fair was released depicting the characters in a very anime-like style.The image shows Panthro, Cheetara, Tygra and Lion-O and they have some pretty significant changes. And where’s the Snarf and Thunderkittens?
