Rumor has been flying for a long time now that the original Thundercats would see a reboot of some kind, and sure enough it’s coming true, over at Cartoon Network. The reboot isn’t coming in the shape of a movie, but instead in the form of a new original series where many of the characters names are the same but the situations are very very different.

Now then, what do you think? For me, the jury is still out, and I’ll have to see it on television. I do like the touch of getting the original Lion-O to voice King Claudus, the new Lion-O’s father, but I’m not sure if I like the whole “coming of age in a family” story that we have going on here. But it could be a good thing. We’ll have to see.
