I will admit a deep weakness to nostalgic things of my youth being adapted to the big screen. I wasn’t too pumped about GI Joe as I thought I would be, but I still get excited to hear these things get announced.
But the long awaited Thundercats film looks like it won’t be getting made. At all.
I don’t know why this cartoon means so much to me (maybe it’s the cool logo), but I’ve always thought the story of humanoid cats fleeing their exploding world was ripe with potential. Also, Mumm-Ra was awesome. But even though I’d love to see it, I’ve spoken to a few reliable sources and they tell me the movie is no longer happening at Warner Bros. I wish I wasn’t reporting that news.
I was kinda looking forward to Thundercats as well. But I am kinda happy that it wont be getting a live action treatment. I think that would just look silly.
The Thundercats are made of the cool, but it is not something that would translate well into reality. Some of that cool comes from its unreality. But a CGI animated might have been interesting to see. But maybe with this version getting shelved we will see someone else step up.
Maybe enlisting James Cameron’s Avatar Technology and MoCap to make an animated CG feature that looks “real”
Yeah, I would love to see THAT Thundercats film.
