    Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) announces in a press release that they have begun production on ThunderCats, an all-new animated series for Cartoon Network, based upon the 1980s action classic. The announcement was made today by Sam Register, Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, Warner Bros. Animation.

    "In addition to being Warner Bros. Animation's first anime series, 'ThunderCats' marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy,” said Register. "The realism and dynamic visual style we've achieved are sure to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should help the show appeal to a diverse audience."

    The 21st century reimagining of the series marks a creative collaboration between WBA and Studio4C, an animation studio in Japan whose credits include The Animatrix, Gotham Knights and Halo Legends. WBA is working closely with Studio4C, utilizing the latter's expertise to give the ThunderCats characters a new cutting-edge look while remaining true to the compelling storylines and mythology of the original series.

    The new ThunderCats will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.

    ThunderCats is executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold). Michael Jelenic (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) are the producers.

    Pictured are the first photos from the new ThunderCats series, including an updated, yet still classic logo.

    So.....4H will be doing the toys, yeah?

    Can't wait to see what they do with the series. The original was a classic, I don't care how aged or kidified it seems now.
