10 Minutes from the New Thundercats Animated TV Show Pilot Episode

The new “Thundercats” animated TV show doesn’t make its debut on the Cartoon Network until July 29th, but until then, take a gander at 10 minutes from the upcoming pilot episode (via Bleeding Cool), featuring Lion-O walking amongst the people. And, er, kicking their ass, too, apparently. It actually looks pretty good. The anime-inspired animation flows a lot better than I had expected.

Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCats! Ho!! On Third Earth, the kingdom of Thundera is being threatened by the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, and Lion-O, the young heir to the throne, embarks on a great quest to take his rightful place as king. The unlikely champion must work with his faithful comrades Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKit, WilyKat, and his loyal pet, Snarf, who join him on his journey to save their world from darkness. From Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), ThunderCats is executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, The Looney Tunes Show), with Michael Jelenic (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) producing.

Besides the upcoming July 29th premiere, the show will also have a significant presence at Comic Con this year, with a panel scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Friday, July 22 in room 6A. Fans present will get an exclusive screening of the hour-long series premiere.

    That’s Epic! I love how they’re widened the story a bit into a larger narrative! Can you imagine how this would play out if they made it a full length animated feature? I think with actors it would come across as corny – people woudl have a hard time not drawing comparisons with CATS the musical – but if a studio like Blur got their hands on this… Wow!

    Oh its good. Its very good! Its just like “Masters of the Universe” and “Ninja Turtles” reboots of 2002. Some change is good and the story looks to be pretty good too. Like the twins as thievs, and love original Lion-O as King Claudus. Tygra and Cheetara are sick. Is it me or when they were fighting that mob looked a lot like the opening of the original show? I can’t wait! Everyone toon in so this doesn’t get the shaft like He-man did.
