ThunderCats Revived For Another Animated Series, Will Air On Cartoon Network USA In 2019

According to an exclusive article from Entertainment Weekly, Warner Bros. Animation has revived the ThunderCats franchise for another animated series called “ThunderCats Roar”, the new show will debut on Cartoon Network USA sometime in 2019.

ThunderCats was originally an animated action show that aired between 1985 and 1989, the show was revived for one season in 2011 which also aired on Cartoon Network. The original series followed the adventures of Lion-O, Cheetara, Panthro, Tygra, Snarf, and WilyKit and WilyKat, their kingdom – Thundera was destroyed by the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, banded together as the ThunderCats and now living in their new home – Third Earth – it’s their mission to stop Mumm-Ra from becoming the most powerful being in the universe.

ThunderCats Roar promises to respect the original series, but also adding an element of comedy to the mix. Victor Courtright, the creator of Cartoon Network’s animated shorts series – Get ’em Tommy will be producing the new series, he also grew up watching the original series.

When asked about the new ThunderCats Roar series, producer Victor Courtright said:

“I think the world that they built lends itself really well to comedy because of how silly and crazy and outlandish those ideas are and some of those settings are. But at the same time, it wouldn’t be ThunderCats if it didn’t have super cool action elements because that’s what people came back to. It’s very much something that we want to lean on. So with the new show, we’re not walking away from the action in any bit. Every step we take towards comedy, we take two more towards really cool action scenes and explosions and lasers and actions effects.”

The official tagline of the new ThunderCats Roar series:

“Staying true to the premise of the original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, Wilykat, and Wilykit — barely escape the sudden destruction of their home world, Thundera, only to crash land on the mysterious and exotic planet of Third Earth. Lion-O, the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, attempts to lead the team as they make this planet their new home. A bizarre host of creatures and villains stand in their way, including the evil Mumm-Ra, Third Earth’s wicked ruler who will let nothing, including the ThunderCats, stop his tyrannical reign over the planet.”

ThunderCats Roar’s voice cast will include Max Mittelman (Justice League Action) as Lion-O and Wilykat, Erica Lindbeck (DC Super Hero Girls) as Cheetara and Wilykit, Patrick Seitz (Justice League Action) as Tygra and Mumm-Ra, and Chris Jai Alex (Star Wars: Battlefront II) as Panthro.

A behind-the-scenes video with show producer – Victor Courtright and his team can be seen on the Entertainment Weekly article or the embedded video below, along with some show art, storyboards and a clip from the show, Lion-O also gives a warm welcome to those who ain’t familiar with the series.
