Cartoon Network is bringing back Thundercats in the style of The Amazing World of Gumball and Steven Universe. This will be the third rendition of the popular show originally which ran from January 23, 1985 to it’s final episode September 29, 1989. The second rendition of Thundercats ran from July 29, 2011 to its final episode June 16, 2012. There are mixed feelings on the web about this new show, what are your thoughts on Thundercats Roar?
ThunderCats Roar will premiere in 2019 on Cartoon Network.
“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.” – Producer Victor Courtright
Below is the announcement trailer:
Why do they keep doing this???
1. Take an excellent show/premise from our childhood.
2. Do a really good remake but cancel it for no good reason just when people are really into it.
3. Come back and make a really lame, slap-stick cartoon with a style that looks like a talentless 5 year old drew it and destroy everything we loved to start with.
I think you cracked the formula for success!
