OK, allow us to catch you up on all things Thundercats.
Way back when (a few years ago), it was reported that a new movie based on the classic animated Thundercats was on the way from Warner Brothers. The movie adaptation never quite found its legs, and has been in production purgatory ever since. Then last June we found out that WB Animation was entering into a collaboration with Japan’s Studio4°C for a new Thundercats animated series that would have anime influences.
Just recently the first images from the animated series showed up online, but today comes a special bit of footage from the lost Thundercats CG movie that was once on the way. It’s pretty cheesy, to be completely honest, and a lot of work would have to be done if they decided to bring the movie back to life, but it is worth seeing for you fans.
You can see the Thundercats movie clip as well as an image from the upcoming animated series below by clicking on over now.
The main issue most seem to have with the new animated series is Lion-O, who doesn’t look up to par with the original. And judging by this newly released clip, this same problem would have existed if the movie were still slated for release.
So looking at these two pieces of evidence from attempted updates on Thundercats, which do you prefer? Are you happy the movie was put on hold and the series is well on the way, or do you want this movie to be made at some point in the future?
