For the older folks out there who grew up on watching cartoons like He-Man, She-Ra, Smurfs, and the original animated Voltron, Thundercats is one of those fondly remembered cartoon series that was probably great to watch as a kid but cheesy to watch as an adult. But guess what? It’s coming back and with a new twist!
Studio 4°C, makers of The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight, and Halo: Legends will be heading the making of the series in a more “traditional anime style” unlike their previously mentioned works. For those unfamiliar with Thundercats, check out wikipedia or read this summary by WB,
According to Warner Bros., “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.”
