The remake for the cartoon Thundercats has been moving forward. Producer Michael Jelenic shared news about wanting to take the old show’s story and simplifying it; the original series had a lot of loosely connected plots and characters. And Jelenic intends to bring things together more cohesively.
“I think when people see the final character designs, people will think it’s a different take, but it will feel very familiar to the old series. … The colors aren’t quite as bright as they were. It’s a little darker take, but you’ll recognize everybody.”
The people who did The Animatrix will be animating Thundercats. It’ll be intriguing to see how this pans out.
Oh yeah, and Lion-O still better say, “Thundercats, hoooooo!” What? I’m an 80s kid.
A darker feel sounds pretty badass. I think it might make for an interesting concept.
I didn’t think much of the remake at first, but this sounds like it actually has potential.
