It’s been a long time coming, but Thundercats, the 80’s cartoon series which followed the adventures of a group of cat-like humanoid aliens from the planet of Thundera, is making its return to TVs across the US tomorrow (July 28th) night.
While the Warner Bros. produced remake of the popular animated series will feature updated graphics, provided by Japanese animation crew Studio 4°C, the group responsible for the animation work done in The Animatrix, the plot and characters will still be familiar to fans of the cult-classic.
According to Wired, who got a sneak peak at the premiere episode already, here is what you can expect:
The latest version of ThunderCats follows Lion-O on a quest to protect the kingdom of Thundera on Third Earth from the evil forces of Mumm-Ra. Lion-O is still rocking the legendary Sword of Omens and his still followed by his litter of merry mousers to help him on his journey — Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKat and Snarf.
The new ThunderCats series debuts this Friday at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central on Cartoon Network.
