New ThunderCats Anime: First Trailer

Posted by Grey Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Lion-O and gang are back and they are ... more effeminate than ever.

That's what happens when Japanese Anime runs wild all around the world.

A reimagining of beloved 80s animation series ThunderCats will be hitting your TV screens some time later this year on Cartoon Network, courtesy of Warner Bros. Animation and Japanese Anime studio Studio4°C (makers of Mind Game, Tekkon Kinkreet, and Batman: Gotham Knight). Based on the Rankin/Bass classic animation, Lion-O and crew will be sporting a new anime-styled appearance in Warner Bros. Animation’s first anime series.

Hit the jump for the trailer.

It might take some getting used to for the new effeminate look of Lion-O, but at least this ain't the naive wild child we seen in the lost footage of the abandoned Thundercats CG film.

Here's the official synopsis of the new anime series.

Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C’s use of the Japanese animated artistry of anime, “ThunderCats” characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.

The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.

“ThunderCats” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”). Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”) are the producers.
