This is just… just… wrong. For all you good folks who seem to think The Transformers has strayed too far from the source material (I don’t think so personally), I say to you… look at the Thundercats… and then get on your knees and thank whatever gods you worship for how close Transformers is keeping things.
They are re-doing the Thundercats. I love the Thundercats… but this… this is just wrong:
WB animation is remaking the Thundercats as an animated TV series. The animation style is whimsical, Americanized-anime, along the lines of Teen Titans.
The setting is modern-day Earth, in a major city (possibly LA)
The Thundercats are all teenagers. Their leader is Snarf (!) who is now a mystic with a “third” eye. Each of the Thundercats has a weapon with an “Eye of Thunderra” and transformative powers (not just Lion-O)
When they aren’t fighting evil, the Thundercats play together as a rock band. That’s not a typo, or a joke. They are rockin’ cats in their present form.
Mum-Ra now has wings.
Did they just say the Thundercats are teenagers in LA playing in a rock band with Snarf as their leader?!?!?! I’m stunned… I just… I just don’t know what to say. (via AICN). Thanks to Brian for the heads up.
