Last week it was announced that a new Thundercats animated series will be coming to Cartoon Network in 2011. This will be a remake of the popular 80s cartoon, which will be done anime-style by Warner Bros. Animation in collaboration with Studio4°C. I rarely watch Cartoon Network, but Thundercats has a special place in my heart. My first cosplay ever was of a Thundercat character that I created myself (Cougara). So I’m excited to see what they do with the remake.
Sam Register, Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, Warner Bros. Animation had this to say about the new series in a press release:
“In addition to being Warner Bros. Animation’s first anime series, ‘Thundercats’ marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy. The realism and dynamic visual style we’ve achieved are sure to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should help the show appeal to a diverse audience.”
I’m all for something from my childhood being remade, as long as it’s done well. So until then, THUNDER….THUNDER…THUNDERCATS…..HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
