Anime-Tastic Trailer for Cartoon Network’s New Thundercats TV Series

Here’s your first official look at the trailer for Cartoon Network’s new take on the “Thundercats”. It’s very heavily anime-inspired, that’s for sure. There is no dialogue to speak off, just a lot of action. All the familiar characters are around and accounted for, though they do look slightly different, but that’s to be expected. My memories of the original TV show is incredibly hazy, but I don’t recall it having THIS many characters or what looks like a “royal family”-type of premise.

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. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stone of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.

Look for it later this year on the Cartoon Network.

    That was PURRFECT!!! Sorry could resist. It was exactly the way i would’ve reimagined it. It looks as if they took out the space traveling aspect and made it more full-on fantasy. Sure there will be technology and such, but it’ll be more like “Masters of the Universe” with them still being on Thundera and maybe them vying for control from the invading Mutants of Plundarr. Mumm-Ra will be exactly as he was before, an ancient evil from the planet, but this time have ties to Thundercat/Tunderan history. Looks pretty sweet to me. I’m all in on this!!
