Part of the magic of Comic-Con is how you arrive with hundreds of dollars in your pocket and after walking around the floor, that pile of money has disappeared but you’ve collected several over-sized bags full of stuff you never even knew you wanted. I managed to exchange quite a bit of leafy green stuff into more tangible objects, obtaining a wide variety of cool stuff from tiny little Thors to to tiny little Batmen to the giant, potentially coolest thing at Comic-Con this year.

Between Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and The Looney Tunes Show, Cartoon Network is so far two for two on their cartoon reboots. But in a further attempt to take the kid programming crown away from rival Nickelodeon, the network has gone back to the nostalgia well again, and this time they pulled out the beloved favorite, Thundercats. Now before everyone stars rioting outside the Cartoon Network HQ, let me say that they are probably one of the most creative networks in the business and the idea of a Thundercats reboot can work in the right hands, and guess what. It did.



It seems a little bit rough, a little bit amateurish, and the tone of it all is definitely aimed at some mythical age group that likes bad jokes, but Flixist has acquired what someone is claiming to be official test footage for the long-in-development take on Thundercats by Warners. The gut reaction is that it isn’t, but it might be. The camera work isn’t oriented well, the coloration is a bit off, and the lighting is poor. Plus, maybe the best indicator is that the set up is corny and lame. Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking, hoping against hope that this isn’t the direction Warners would take. So what makes it possible? There’s a Warners logo on the front end that fades directly into the dirt. Is that conclusive? No. Anyone as decently skilled at CGI as whomever made this could easily snag that logo and use it. And why would Warners put that logo over test footage? There are too many questions here, even if the look of the video does match the concept art revealed in 2009 fairly faithfully. We’ll let you be the judge:



Nine emails and seven alerts on Twitter — that is how many times I’ve heard about this awesome new fan made trailer for Thundercats this afternoon. And after one or two viewings, I got to thinking that its possible — though remotely — that this trailer could be better than any actual Thundercats movie, should one actually get made.

This article has absolutely nothing to do with the real Thundercats movie currently set to see theater time in 2010. This is all about a faux production created in the minds of a few fans.


Is this a first glimpse into 2010’s Thundercats film?
