The WB is going to ruin the Thundercats
As a huge Thundercats fan, I watched the DVD releases with the same joy I felt everytime I sat in front of the TV when I was little. But, Ain't it Cool News' inside info that they are remaking the series has me wishing that it never existed.
According to Ain't it Cool's source,
The animation style is whimsical, Americanized-anime, along the lines of Teen Titans. The setting is modern-day Earth, in a major city (possibly LA) The Thundercats are all teenagers. Their leader is Snarf (!) who is now a mystic with a "third" eye. Each of the Thundercats has a weapon with an "Eye of Thunderra" and transformative powers (not just Lion-O) When they aren't fighting evil, the Thundercats play together as a rock band. That's not a typo, or a joke. They are rockin' cats in their present form. Mum-Ra now has wings.
I am too appalled to rant about how ludicrous this sounds!
