Thundercats is coming back on Cartoon Network. But before you get too excited, you may want to take a look at particularly how the new version is being drawn.
Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and company are looking much more kid-friendly than the late 80’s cartoon we have come to know and love. And it’s definitely far removed from the 2011, anime-flavored re-up that y’all slept on and got canceled due to low rating.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Warner Bros. Animation is reviving the series as ThunderCats Roar.
Peep a featurette on the new series below. Set to debut in 2019, the show is “all about praise and love of the original” per producer Victor Courtright. We shall see.
