Thundercats Are Back! Hooooooo!
I may be showing my age and geekdom here, but I am stoked to announce that one of my favorite cartoon shows has come back to TV. It’s been a long time coming, but Thundercats, the 80′s cartoon series which followed the adventures of a group of cat-like humanoid aliens from the planet of Thundera, made its return to TVs across America last night.
While the Warner Bros. produced remake of the popular animated series features updated graphics, provided by Japanese animation crew Studio 4°C, the group responsible for the animation work done in The Animatrix, the plot and characters will still be familiar to fans of the cult-classic.
According to Wired, who got a sneak peak at the premiere episode already, here is what you can expect:
The latest version of ThunderCats follows Lion-O on a quest to protect the kingdom of Thundera on Third Earth from the evil forces of Mumm-Ra. Lion-O is still rocking the legendary Sword of Omens and is still followed by his litter of merry mousers to help him on his journey — Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKat and Snarf.
If you missed it, then “feel the magic” of the 2-minute teaser below and let us know what you look forward to the most in the upcoming throwback-remake.
