Thundercats 2011

The new Thundercats that recently premiered is a reboot of the successful 80's animated series that spawned an awesome range of action figure collectables.The writers of the new series have remained very close to the original storyline and have expanded and gone in deeper detail with all the main characters that we so fondly looked forward to watching when we were kids.

The season premier is an hour long (41 minutes without adverts) and starts of as a prequel which tells the origins of the Thundercats and the Sword of Omens. The series is produced by Warner Bros and the animation is done by Japanese Company Studio 4 and is very easy on the eyes. The Thundercats universe has an amazing mythology which is told with a similar dramatic style as  Lord of the Rings  and Star Wars albeit in a very simplified and in a fluid way, the creators have given character exploration such strong focus that each character in the series could eventually have their own origins series.

Needless to say, the series is appealing to viewers of all ages and still maintains an essence of 80's cheesyness.One thing that you have to be warned about though, is that series has been given an overhaul in terms of its storyline, having watched 7 of the eight episodes so far, I'm still waiting for how this storyline ties in with the old one.

I haven't yet been able to find a schedule as to when The New Thundercats series will be released on our local channels but if you cant wait and really have to watch it right now, follow this Youtube link, where you will find the first episode in 4 parts which is two episodes. Enjoy
