New ThunderCats Series Makes Old Series Look Even Cheesier [Video]

Today in Reboots We Like: A new trailer for the upcoming ThunderCats anime series premiered at WonderCon and once again, it’s proving to be the series that the old series wished it could have been. As someone who watched the old series when it was on, the ThunderCats were a bunch of odd-looking, awesome cat people with swords and stuff, and that was pretty much it. (Maybe because I was five and didn’t consider anything deeper than “They’re awesome cat people with swords and stuff.”) But this series makes it look like they’re a humanoid race of cat people who actually evolved from cats, fighting an epic battle with armies and weapons, and magic! (And live alongside humanoids who evolved from dinosaurs.)
The nostalgia trip is nice, but being able to improve on nostalgia? The little kid in me (and, no doubt, in everyone else who was a fan) is very, very curious.
