Review: Thundercats

** so long overdue

As I have stated in my previous post (here),  reboots and sequels has become the current trend in the Movies and TV industry.  So, now here is my take on the reboot of one of my favorite 80’s cartoon series, The Thundercats.

Current Plot:

For years, the Thunderians have lived peacefully and thrived in the kingdom of Thundera. However, one night the kingdom was attacked by an army of mutant lizards, led by the evil sorcerer Mumm-ra.  A small band of Thunderians survived and flees Thundera, led by the young heir to the throne Lion-O who wields the powerful Sword of Omens.  These survivors now journey third Earth in search for the Book of Omens, a powerful artifact which contains knowledge on how to defeat Mumm-ra.

Thoughts:

So… Before anything else, I love the new character design.  Not that there was anything wrong with the old one but the new design is appealing especially to the kids these days, and to some of the oldies too.  I am not only referring to the main characters, but to the side characters as well as the villains.  The drawing on is more detailed compared to the old one, of course, plus it just looks great.

As for the new story line… I like this new story flow compared to the old one.  The side stories, plus how the events unfolded, including character development is much more better compared to the previous show.  Although, it is still a bit too early to tell.  I am still a fan of the old series.  As for the new one, I still am not sure but based on the episodes released as of the moment… so far, so good.
