New action-comedy series, ThunderCats Roar, will debut on April 6.
The ThunderCats brand is returning to TV screens, with Cartoon Network set to debut a new animation on April 6.
Action-comedy series ThunderCats Roar is aiming to stay true to the premise of the classic original series – which was a hit with children in the mid to late 1980s.
Lion-O and the ThunderCats – Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, WilyKit and WilyKat – barely escape the sudden destruction of their home world, Thundera, only to crash land on the mysterious planet of Third Earth.
As the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, Lion-O attempts to lead the team as they make the planet their home, battling with a host of creatures and villains – including Third Earth’s wicked ruler, Mumm-Ra – along the way.
Cartoon Network is aiming to ‘reignite’ the existing fanbase of the iconic characters, as well as introducing the brand to a new generation.
