First look at upcoming new TV series “ThunderCats”, set for release in 2011 by Cartoon Network. The show will explain Lion-O's ascension to the Thunderan throne with a more original feel and darker style than the 80s'series. In early November 2010, former Lion-O voice actor Larry Kenney revealed that he would be playing the role of Lion-O and Tygra's father Claudius in the opening three-part episode of the new series.
Studio 4°C, which produced the Matrix "The Animatrix" and Batman: Gotham Knight anime movies will be handling the artwork and animations. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10) will be the executive producer and is joined by Michael Jelenic (Wonder Woman, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) as the producers for the series.
Below is the promotional poster from the 2011 London Toy Fair showing the redesigned Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and Tygra.
