The new ThunderCats series has an art style which is similar to The Amazing World of Gumball, instead of the original series which the fans identify with, and the tone is a lot more self-conscious and funny than the earlier one. Some are loving it, and there are others who are not too pleased with all the changes, and then there are those who are simply delighted to know that a new ThunderCats series is coming up next year.
The team making the new series believes that the grander ThunderCats elements give themselves an irreverent and positive tone, and we are not sure of that until it is aired. For now, you can check out the first footage here.
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.
The official description of the upcoming series is given below:
“Staying 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 homeworld, 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.”
