Who knew Thundercats would still be such a hot topic nearly 20 years later? A while back, we brought you some interesting “test footage” of Warner Bros.’ alleged lost CGI film with our favorite feline warriors. Now we’re getting the first footage of Cartoon Network’s upcoming revamped series.
Don’t expect much of a change from the original, except for some great new animation and voice talent. Even some old friends are returning, such as the original Lion-O, Larry Kenney, who is coming along now to voice Claudus. From the official release.
Based upon the iconic 1980s action classic, ThunderCats tells the epic tale of Lion-O and his battle against evil in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power. The series is executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold).
Over the weekend at San Francisco’s WonderCon, Cartoon Network held a very special panel for the upcoming series and showed fans the first footage EVER. And for those who couldn’t make the show, we’ve got it here for you.
Check out the new Thundercats footage after the jump. Ho!
