THUNDERCATS ARE LOOSE!
The Cartoon Network recently announced it is developing a new ThunderCats television series, based upon the 1985-1990 series that followed the battle between Lion-O and Mumm-Ra (The Ever-living!) on the planet Plun-Darr. Warner Brothers Animation is looking to team with a Japanese animation studio, Studio 4C, to give the series a fresh “anime” look.
Studio 4C, if you have never heard of them, was behind “The Animatrix” and “Gotham Knights.” I’d expect a darker, more adult take on the Cats.
ThunderCats always had a nice blend of swordplay, magic, science and martial arts. An updated series could be great fun. Will it be any good?
