Thundercats fans finally have some good news. Yes, the animated series of the Thundercats is being finally screened at this year’s Comic-Con. When the first episode of the popular show was screened earlier this year, the crowd roared with excitement and throughout the hallway only the loud cheering of the Thundercats, “ThunderCats, hoooo!” could be heard and nothing else.
The Thundercats director Dan Norton and the producers Michael Jelenic and Ethan Spaulding were there before the board to give the details of the show and also answer the questions about the episode. Of course they had to face the big question of ” why now?”. They undoubtedly knew that this show was something that the people have waited for, for many years now.
The show producer Ethan Spaulding told that this show was something that has been planned for almost ten years now but it got the final green signal only in 2010, and the Thundercats production were in full force. The Thundercats team consists of people who themslves grew up on the cartoons of 1980 but they nevertheless have reviewed the earlier episode in a bid to maintain the same storyline, as close as possible.
Some major changes have been made although in the new Thundercats. One of the changes are the main character of the series, Lion-O, is going to be shown as a young teenage hero, while the irritating sidekick Snarf has been made devoid of any speaking organs.
