You may have heard: the Thundercats are coming to a big screen near you. But don’t worry, it’s not going to be live-action, because let’s face it, live-action Thundercats would just be … weird. Instead, the whole shebang will be CGI animation, but if Internet rumors are correct (re: it probably isn’t), then the movie’s got some pretty big names behind it, including Hugh Jackman, Jessica Simpson and Michael Clarke Duncan. And again, i stress the if correct part. In any case, here is your (sorta) first look at what the Thundercats will look like.
