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

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. The cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. After ten years of learning from Don Bluth and working together on the Dragon’s Lair pitch, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    Formula…
    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.
