Someone once showed me this trailer and I loved it to bits. What's much more startling is the fact that they're actually making a thundercats movie for real. Has the real trailer come out yet?
Those were my two cents.

Since the actual movie is still in the pre-production phase, I doubt it.

Actually, it's hard to tell how the actual movie will turn out. The TV series was so awful, I doubt they could really screw it up MORE than it already was They already had a mix of annoying and poorly designed characters, similarly annoying and poorly designed vehicles and locations, horrendously bad writing, variable animation, an incredibly repetitive and predictable plot, and the annoying “got to teach a lesson in every episode” approach. Still, the first draft on the screenplay is apparently from a guy who hasn't written anything of worth (two comedies and a horror film, all of which got pretty low ratings on imdb), but at the same time, the producers working on the project have quite a few good movies under their belts, so who knows. I also wouldn't be surprised if someone else came in and rewrote those scripts, too.

I take some issue with you there Isukun.
-Yes the animation WAS bad. Half the characters were annoying, and many seemed to have been stolen from the H-Man school of design, but some were still quite funky in their way and the late 70's look a lot of them had was rather charming.
-Many of the vehicles were overly blocky (another part of the He-Man problem), but still others were quite well done and iconic.


The stories were indeed repetitive, but that's hard;y atypical of the American cartoons from that era with a heavy toy focus.

-This trailer was posted already in the WTH forum :)

They should just go ahead and make this into an animated CG movie like the Gatchaman flick.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you on that one, man. I loved Thundercats as a kid.

I think that's the plan.

Yeah, I remember seeing it there as well but it seems to bee cool enough to belong to both places. It's a WTH media!

And regardless of how you thought that show was, everyone has to agree that the intro kicked ass!

Those were my two cents.

I thought the only thing that held up after all these years was the animation. Didn't the studio that animated it become Studio Ghibli?

Indeed. But at current I think PS has their coder/coders ( depending on if they've hired another one at this point. ) working on something else if I remember what I heard correctly.

I'd almost just like to see them give the movie contract to the guy who made the trailer. Obviously he loves the show so you know he'd put his heart into it and that would put the plot leaps ahead of a lot of other film adaptations where the guy doing things doesn't know what the heck the original was all about.

No. Actually, Thundercats was made after the Topcraft breakup. They were in the process of changing the name of the company around that time and a number of animators and production crew left the studio around that time due to the new payment plan and Miyazaki's high standards. Many of those that left were picked up by the Pacific Animation Corporation, who would go on to work on the Thundercats. Nobody who worked on that series was ever employed by Studio Ghibli. Some did go on to work on some other collaborative projects with Western studios like Hanna Barbera, though.

snarky picture

I can never get it to work. I've tried searching for stuff that I know there's result for like the rant thread and it just tells me that it can't find anything. I had just figured they were either working on it or it had stopped functioning and nobody noticed yet.

No. Actually…

But it was brought to us by the folks who made Rudolph the Red-nosed Reinder, Here Comes Santa Claus, and Frosty the Snowman! (though obviously outsourced. :( )

I think what Sea Cow is referring to is the direct disdain of a cartoon which many of us who grew up watching and enjoying. We all have fond memories of this cartoon along w/ Transformers, GI Joe, He-Man… etc. But as we already know you didn't enjoy any of those shows and found them over-rated and horrible. I wonder did you feel that way when you were younger while watching them? Yeah, we can all look back to things of youth with our big grownup glasses on and be critical of such things but the criticism is out of context of being a child growing up. Your critique seems quite similar to the one website where a guy criticizes kids drawings.

Thundercats is definitely one of those cartoons that doesn't really stand the test of time. Watching it as an adult, the flaws are obvious. But nostalgia is magical… Things we enjoyed as children get a pass, because while they're not the greatest quality, they were in the right place at the right time and assimilated into our childhood.

Isukun is right about Thundercats. But he hasn't violated our childhoods. We can still love the Thundercats anyway.

And at what point have I ever said I don't like any of those other shows? Yes, I know what Sea Cow was referring to, and I know what you're saying as well, and you're both wrong. Those other shows I watched religiously as a child. G.I. Joe, Transformers, He-Man, Voltron, Silverhawks, all that stuff was great when I was a kid. Hell, I still like the old G1 Transformers despite its faults. I NEVER liked the Thundercats, though. Even as a kid I didn't like the Thundercats. Somehow stating that ONCE in this thread does not translate to making it my life's purpose to ruin your collective childhoods, though.

Now, I have no issues with criticizing modern remakes of those classic shows and I have done so with several of them, but that is hardly the same thing.
