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.
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.
