Cartoon Network is bringing back ThunderCats as a comedy!
No, this isn’t a very late April Fools joke.
Cartoon Network plans to do a second ThunderCats reboot. The original series aired in the 80’s and the first reboot aired in 2011 for only one season.
This new attempt seems to be trying to be more like Teen Titans Go.
Producer Victor Courtright promises that the action will outweigh the comedy;
“I think the world that they built lends itself really well to comedy because of how silly and crazy and outlandish those ideas are and some of those settings are, But at the same time, it wouldn’t be ThunderCats if it didn’t have super cool action elements because that’s what people came back to. It’s very much something that we want to lean on. So with the new show, we’re not walking away from the action in any bit. Every step we take towards comedy, we take two more towards really cool action scenes and explosions and lasers and actions effects.”
ThunderCats Roar stars Max Mittelman (Justice League Action) as Lion-O and Wilykat, Erica Lindbeck (DC Super Hero Girls) as Cheetara and Wilykit, Patrick Seitz (Justice League Action) as Tygra and Mumm-Ra, and Chris Jai Alex (Star Wars: Battlefront II) as Panthro.
ThunderCats Roar will premiere in 2019 on Cartoon Network.
