Disney revived the Eighties series Muppet Babies and Dreamworks is resurrecting She-Ra: Princess of Power. Now, it’s Warner Bros. Animation’s turn with their remake of Thundercats.
The new series, Thundercats Roar, currently in production, will debut on Cartoon Network in 2019. It’ll be a comedic take on the original series, with simplified and cartoony character designs, but has also promised to stay 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.
Thundercats Roar is being produced by Victor Courtright (a Cartoon Brew Artist of the Day all the way back in 2013) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Right Now Kapow). Sam Register is the executive producer.
