Saw this today.


Thought it might be interesting, this news came from Flixclusive: Thundercats reboot footage

Claims to be reboot footage for the CG Thundercats movie. Guess we are getting one, and it won't be live action.

No clue if it's legit or not. Looks pretty professionally done to be a fake though. So I side with legit for now.

io9. We come from the future.
From the update on the article:

UPDATE: It looks like this is from an abandoned Thundercats CG movie from a couple years back. A curiosity, yes, but not from the new series.
Looked interesting, though I don't know how I feel about a wise-cracking Lion-O...

Didn't think it was part of the new show as that's obviously traditional animation, but that's good to know if it was the shelved CG movie from before.

Shares a lot of the same design cues as the current series though, so it's interesting from a progressive standpoint of the designs.

Considering the shared design cues, I wouldn't be surprised if the new series does well, that this ends up becoming something again and unshelved for theaters. Or if it may already being thought about to do that with the current positive fan reaction to the new.

I find it kind of interesting from the standpoint of his immaturity.
Shows the potential to have had him grow up and mature, similiar to how the original went through that growth period and adjusting to his new age. Kind of the 'heroes journey' from immature prince brat, to authoritive mature leader. It does reference his father as still being alive which would coincide with that.

I thought it was pretty fun. Would have been interesting to see that fully fleshed out.

I guess I'm one of the few that feels like we dodged a MAJOR bullet with this one. That's one way to make sure a franchise stays dead forever.

Possibly. I dunno though, I've always been a fan who would rather have something mediocre than nothing at all. The wisecracks from Lion-o though, eh, I can live without.

I didn't care for the new teen Lion-O, but it looked pretty good.

I hope the new Thundercats isn't quite like what we just watched *crosses fingers*

I hope the new cartoon is NOTHING like that at all.
I hated just about every second of it.

No I totally agree that we seem to have dodged a major bullet to the back of the head with a movie like that. Just look at how the Teenage Mutant Turtles couldn't get off the ground after their animated movie did not appeal as widely as they hoped it would.

I kind of feel like someone made a wise choice to shelve this and wait until they had something to really capture kids imaginations. In a way a cartoon series rather than a cartoon movie seems like the best way to get positive attention.

Ha! that video was great. I cringed a little watching him bang his sword into the rocks. That's no way to treat a sword. I really like the CGI work. The wise cracks ad smack talk is great, especially that last couple seconds. And finally, we get a protagonist who isn't a whiny, pansy-ass, wanker. I'm digging it.

I've watched it a few more times. I still enjoyed it. I can see why some were put off by the tone, but I thought it was fun. And this was only test stuff anyway. Not necessarily how the final product would have played out. It's all moot now though, which is a shame.

Well, that was an interesting video.

I'm not certain what to think of it; I still don't care for the Lion-O design used, and Slythe was rather odd too.

On the other hand, speaking purely of the animation, it was very nicely done. The CGI had a very polished look to it, and felt very smooth and fluid.

As far as writing, it was rather painful to watch Lion-O randomly smashing his sword into a rock; though, I'll admit that the ending did make me laugh, though, it was because of how ridiculous it was.

For the style chosen, I like the designs for the new series that we are getting much more.

I'm glad to see this was posted though; it's always interesting see stuff that we never knew existed, or was thought lost.

I'm totally with you here. That was so generic and uninspired. You could've turned that into a non-TCats clip in no time. Hell, it might have been something else originally. Very disappointing. Glad that's dead.

Don't pee on my TCats, Hollywood!

Not all that bad. Not exactly sure what I think of the styling of it, but the quality was certainly nice. A Thundercats movie is something that I would go see pretty much no matter what, lol, so hopefully it does get made eventually.

Meh. Didn't appeal to me. I've seen the cocky hero schtick done better than this. And I'm sorry, but Lion-O wears blue.
