This sounds like a MUCH better idea than a film adaptation!
The best ’80s cartoon of all-time, ThunderCats, is getting a modern day, cartoon reimagining, set to air on the Cartoon Network in 2011!
Warner Bros. Animation’s Sam Register says:
├óΓé¼┼ôIn addition to being Warner Bros. Animation├óΓé¼Γäós first anime series, ThunderCats marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy. The realism and dynamic visual style we├óΓé¼Γäóve achieved are sure to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should help the show appeal to a diverse audience.├óΓé¼┬¥
The story will follow our most beloved Lion-O as he ascends the throne and is a “sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes.”
The rest of the statement reads:
“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.├óΓé¼┬¥
We usually hate these shiteous remakes, but we have a good feeling about ThunderCats! It’s just what this generation’s batch of kiddies needs!
