New ‘Thundercats’ Series Headed to Cartoon Network

I’m not sure if ToyFare Magazine was counting on inspiring every “Thundercats” fan when it opened its mail today, but by golly, their “Thundercats” news from Warner Bros. has the Internet shouting “HOOOOOOOO!”

Warner Bros. Animation has announced that 2011 is going to be the year of the “Thundercats,” with a new animated series from Studio 4°C (“The Animatrix,” “Gotham Knights” and “Halo Legends”) on its way to Cartoon Network.

Interestingly, Warner Bros. is being pretty heavy-handed in its branding of the series as an “anime.” The distinction seems pretty arbitrary – especially since the show’s not being produced initially for Japanese audiences and then localized for North American viewers, but if that’s WB’s way of trying to say “It’ll look super cool and stylized,” then I’ll take it.

A very much American team of executive producer Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”), and producers Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”) will be shaping the show on this side of the Pacific, meaning “Thundercats” will likely share the edgy-yet-all-ages tones of their previous work. On the surface, the staff and studio seem like a nice fit so far.
