Cartoon Network Lets Loose With 'ThunderCats Roar'

ThunderCats, Ho---ly Shee--! What is THAT?!

Source: Cartoon Network bringing back ThunderCats for new animated series

In 1985 the world was introduced to ThunderCats, the animated adventures of a humanoid feline team on their new home named Third Earth, battling the evil Mutants of Plun-Darr. The show lasted for four seasons and had tie in comics, toys and other collectibles. In 2011, there was a revival of the series and it was actually… decent, but sadly only lasted a single season. There were plans for a second, but it never materialized.

Well, it looks like Cartoon Network is ready to give ThunderCats another go, but it looks like a very different take on our feline heroes. The setting is largely the same, but its a comedic take on the property, a ThunderCats Go, rather than a ThunderCats, Ho.

Here is how the new show is described:

"Staying true to the premise of the original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, Wilykat, and Wilykit — barely escape the sudden destruction of their home world, Thundera, only to crash land on the mysterious and exotic planet of Third Earth. Lion-O, the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, attempts to lead the team as they make this planet their new home. A bizarre host of creatures and villains stand in their way, including the evil Mumm-Ra, Third Earth's wicked ruler who will let nothing, including the ThunderCats, stop his tyrannical reign over the planet."


Here's a behind-the-scenes featurette for ThunderCats Roar:

The final format for the cartoon has not been revealed. ThunderCats Roar is expected on the network in 2019.
