A new Thundercats series is coming
« on: June 03, 2010, 11:49:41 AM »
For those who care (beyond Cheetara, I don't really): http://www.toonzone.net/news/articles/33702/warner-bros.-animation-announces-new-thundercats-series-for-cn-in-2011

Quote
The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight, and Halo Legends, and the series promises that its iconic characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, and others will "spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics."

The series will air on Cartoon Network in 2011. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is executive producer, with Michael Jelenic (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) producing.

It's got some good names and a great anmation studio behind it, but I'll reserve judgment until it actually airs.

If it keeps the rocking theme tune and drops...pretty much everything else (ESPECIALLY SNARF) then I'll be interested.

And for the record: Fuck Snarf.

They can keep Mum Ra, but I'm with mrbasehart on this. Get rid of Snarf.  :gouge:

Also, what do they mean by "realistic cat-like characteristics"? Are they implying that the original characters lacked any? Or that we'll see Panthro using the litter box while Lion-O opts to mark his territory by spraying? Will my cat allergies somehow start acting up just by my watching it? What?

The Thundercats will spend a lot of the time "playing the cello."

In Snarf's defense, he...

...

okay I can't think of any way to finish that sentence.

I recently sold my volume 1 box set of the old series, but even though I rarely get the urge to watch it I was surprised last time how well it held up.  It was a far superior show to say...He-Man, and He-Man's remake on Cartoon Network turned out awesome.  I guess I can use that to hope for the best here.

I probably wouldn't think much of this, even with a good Japanese animation studio involved, but a lot of what I see from Studio 4C is some very original work series (that never struck me as quite commercial as series by other studios.  What I saw anyway.) and great short films,  I'm interested to see what they do with it.

While perusing the updated posts list, this thread was directly above "Good idea, bad idea". Yeah, that pretty much sums up my thoughts on it. 'Cause you know they're gonna screw it up.

How horrible. 

Well, I was going to make a joke, but in light of this...I will anyway.

The title of this thread should have been "Thundercats are on the move!  Thundercats are loose!"
