Writer/producer Michael Jelenic, speaking to IGN:
We might have taken some big departures story-wise, but we still latched onto what the themes of the show were. … A boy becoming king and growing into that role.
I am SO stoked for this show. I grew up on the ThunderCats. The theme song still gives me chills. The reboot comes with a few changes though, such as Lion-O not having accelerated age or Snarf being demoted to a silent house pet, not to mention the new anime style. All the classic characters are present and accounted for though and they’re looking great.
Coming July 29th to Cartoon Network.
