There's A 'Thundercats' Reboot Trailer, And It Isn't Awful

April 4th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
Thundercats ended about 20 years ago, so it's about time that a reboot is in the works. However, many probably didn't think the show would be so epically presented.

In a trailer released at Wondercon, we are treated to a climactic battle between the forces of Thundera, lead by Lion-O's father Claudus, and the mutants of Plun-Darr. It immediately draws comparison to The Two Towers - until the robots with lasers show up - and the stage is set for Lion-O's journey to vanquish the evil Mumm-ra once and for all.

Watch the trailer below, and let us know if you will be watching the new series!

With the rise of video games and comic book movies as "cool" in the mainstream, there have been more girls willing to come out about their love for Guitar Hero or Superman. It's no longer a badge of weird, even to our fellow gals, and it's almost become an attractive feature for a girl to be able to beat you in Wi...

Family Guy
On the Cartoon Network, there are so many programs that appeal to just about every type of animation connoisseur. Late nights you can catch re-runs of "Family Guy" or get thugged out and righteous by watching Riley and Huey on "The Boondocks."
