Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats, HO!

Cartoon Network announced today that “Thundercats,” the reimagining of the 1980s classic will premiere Friday, July 29th at 8 p.m. with a one-hour episode.Link

I was a big “Thundercats” fan, so I was a little nervous about a re-imagining. However, taking a look at the cast, assembled by the great Andrea Romano of Warner Bros., makes me feel a whole lot better…

Here it is from the press release:

Will Friedle - Lion-O

Emmanuelle Chriqui - Cheetara

Madeleine Hall - WilyKit

Satomi Kohrogi - Snarf

Matthew Mercer - Tygra

Eamon Pirruccello - WilyKat

Kevin Michael Richardson - Panthro

Dee Bradley Baker - Slithe

Clancy Brown - Grune

Corey Burton - Jaga

Robin Atkin Downes - Mumm-Ra

Carl Jones - Alley Cat

Larry Kenney - Claudus

Will Friedle was fantastic as Terry McGinnis/Batman in “Batman Beyond.” Kevin Michael Richardson is a perfect choice for Panthro and I’m excited about Emmanuelle Chriqui (Sloane from “Entourage”) voicing my favorite character, Cheetara.

I’ll have MUCH more about this as the premiere gets closer. In the meantime, you can watch a preview of the show here.
