For anyone is interested, I made a new LJ community for the new Thundercats cartoon.

I've looked around on lj, and while there's a community for the original Thundercats series, there doesn't seem to be one made one that focuses on the new reboot.

I'm currently debating if I should go ahead and make a new community for the series myself or just be content with making my reviews. What do you guys think?

Oh, and for those interested, teaser clips have been released for the next episode:

Last night, episode 3 of the new Thundercats series aired. Thankfully, for those who weren't able to catch it, here's the youtube link





Brief Summary )

I didn't expect too much from this episode since we're still early in the series. It's understandable why Lion-O wants revenge and anyone with half of brain can figure how who the plot will go within the first five minutes. However, Lion-O's reaction to his father being dead and his city destroyed was something that had to be address, so hopefully we can move on with the plot. Also, the animation is still nice to look at, I do wish they had a longer opening song, but they might be wanting to keep it brief so they have more time for story in the episode, so I can't blame them for that.

There wasn't much development for Tygra and Cheetara in this one, but I expect there will be later. (I will admit, I feel a bit of satisfaction from Tygra getting seasick after he was so cocky in the first episode. XD)

I love WilyKat and WilyKit, they're adorable and I like that they got actual kids to voice them so they do sound like kids. (At least, they sound like kids to me, but it would surprise me if they are voice by adults.)

My prediction is that Panthro will appear in the next episode or the one after that seeing as he is the last Thundercat to join the group. Anyway, look forward to the next episode.

Last thing about the new Thundercats for now, I swear.

I just stumbled upon this mini interview with the voice actors of the new show. Will is just adorable in this:



"I feel like I'm 12 again!" XD

Okay, I just watched the hour premier of the new Thundercats series and so far, I think it's a decent reboot. Granted, the series only started so it's still too early to fully judge it (Mystery Incorporated had a good first episode and that series ended up being a disaster.)

However, I'm really hopeful that this series will be an equal reboot to the new My Little Pony series.

First off, in the original series they had the lizards and other animals be the enemies of the Thundercats without a real reason why instead of just being evil. In the new show however, there is a valid reason for the tension between the species being that while the Thundercats have the best land to grow and make food, it doesn't live much for the other species to live on. Thus, this forces to scrap and find food, so it's understandable why they want to defeat the Thundercats. It will make an interesting conflict to be sure.

The new Lion-O so far is enjoyable. He's a teenager, but feels a bit of an outcast since he doesn't share the view of the other Thundarians (believes in technology, doesn't think the other animals should be treated as they are, etc). Plus, turns out he's being voiced by Will Friedle who is a a voice actor I've always liked (He did Terry in Batman Beyond for an example.) Anyway, I think Lion-O will be a good main character.

There are a few differences from the original show. Tyra is Lion-O's adoptive brother and he's seems bit cocky, so I'll be curious in his character development. Also, in this version Snarf doesn't talk. He's intelligent, and he meows, but he doesn't talk in the original version.

I know some fans probably won't like that idea, but I certainly don't mind it. I didn't mind Snarf talking in the original version, but it doesn't bug me that he doesn't talk in the new version either. (Plus, I must admit, he's updated version is much cuter. I see potential plushie making in the future.)

The series also seems to hint that the original series was the history for the new series, since it's stated the Thundercats came to Third Earth and created their empire. It could just be a reference to the original series, but you never now. Also, Lion-O's original voice actor plays Claudus's, Lion-O's which I think was a nice touch.

I wish I could say if the theme song for the new show is good, but unfortunately, it didn't air this time. I know for a lot of fans that will be an important issue since the original theme song was awesome.


Overall, I think this will be a promising reboot and I'll try to follow and make reviews as I go along. So, here's hoping. *fingers crossed.*
