I was lukewarm with the idea of another reboot of an 80’s cartoon series, but I did enjoy the “Masters of the Universe” reboot and Cartoon Network did do quite well with “Ben 10”, "Teen Titans" and “Young Justice”, so I decided to take a peep at it.
This new ThunderCats reboot seemed more ambitious in developing complexities than the original series. I liked the way the TV pilot introduced and added twists to each character and the way Third Earth was fleshed out for the viewer. Making some intelligent changes and additions to make the characters connect with older viewers (makes sense since its original fanbase from before has also aged to maturity). The animation dispenses of the bright vibrant colors the original series had and instead goes dark to match the mood and tone of the storyline. Japanese animators take the stage for the fights, so expect something with the anime influence.
Not a bad beginning, and I may just follow the series now since the pilot movie (actually 2 episodes merged into one: “Sword of Omens” and “Spirits of Evil”) was interesting. See Full Review Here
