Thundercats Are Back On The Loose, Check Out The New TV Trailer

Theoretically this review only needs to contain 3 words: Thundercats. Is. Back.

For those of us old enough to remember Lion-O and friends as they fought against the evil forces of Mumm-Ra, this is a big deal. The classic 1980s cartoon has been rebooted and given a sleek new manga look.

However, the trailer doesn't really give us many clues. But, then again, the plot of Thundercats was never really that complex. Mumm-Ra hates the Thundercats and the Thundercats hate Mumm-Ra.

What the trailer does show us, however, is that all of our favourite characters are back, albeit looking slightly different and moving a bit more smoothly than they did back in the 80s.

We can also seemingly expect all of the action and adventure that made this series a classic to return. Explosions, full scale wars and, of course, the sword of omens will be lighting up our screens and introducing a whole new generation to what was one of the cultural highlights of the 80s.

If you want to check out the new series, either for a great big dollop of nostalgia, or to indoctrinate your children to the ways of the Thundercats, it starts this Sunday at 10.05am on Channel 5.
