According to Anime!Anime!, Warner Bros. announced a remake TV series of US Cartoon ThunderCats, which was originally aired in 1980's. Japanese anime studio Studio 4°C will be in charge of the anime production. Sam Register, the Executive Vice President of Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), called the new ThunderCats "WBA's first anime series".

The original TV series was created by Rankin/Bass and they outsourced the anime productions to a Japanese studio Top Craft, the forerunner of Studio Ghibli.

I wonder if Studio 4°C will go for their trademark style ala Tekkon Kinkreet. Low chance but I'd like for it to happen just to hear the reactions.

On an unrelated note I never forgave them for using that style on .hack//Link's OP but that's not the subject here...

Holy shit! Thundercats? You've gotta be kidding me. That show made me laugh so much - not cuz it's comedic, but because it was so narmy and full of ham.

I can't wait to see this. I have to watch this. Haha

This. Thundercats was intelligent and stunning for a Saturday morning cartoon.

But why Studio 4°C? That's like having Quentin Tarantino direct Toy Story 3.

Usually I would say: "what the heck???!!! This is never going to work!!!!"

However, since it's Studio 4°C, I have higher hopes for it. Guess we'll just have to see how it turns out.

Though I have to say, why a remake? I would much rather watch a whole new storyline than a rehash of an existing one. Yeah, I am not much of a fan of remakes in general. :/ If it wasn't for the fact that Studio 4°C was involved in this, I probably couldn't care less. Hopefully they will bring something fresh to the table, like they did with the Dark Knight.

the only time they should even mention this cartoon anymore is when they are satirizing it on robot chicken
"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

I dunno, it could be interesting, if they don't change the original designs too much.

Bad...Bad...Good...Bad. A .250 average isn't something to proud of, except in professional baseball.

I don't know about masterpiece but it would revive the series if they do it right. But you're right....it will either be very good or a disaster. I will say good if Warner Bros. keeps thier "creative" talent away from 4°C. American animation has been less then stellar for a very long time.
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

One of my dreams has just come true. Now they just need to remake He-Man, The Spiderman cartoon from the mid-90's and the x-men cartoon from early 90's and I will be one happy camper.

THUNDERCATS ANIME BY STUDIO 4°C *_*......!!!!!

Holy shit...I was just thinking about this the day I was watching that Denver The Last Dinosaur video. "I wonder what Thundercats would be like if it was an anime D:?" and now this. This could either be a flop or a great hit. Shooting for the latter.

There was a re-make of He-Man back in 2002...and (in my opinion) it failed compared to the original.

I saw this news yesterday on ANN, and I was thrilled. The promo art looks pretty epic, and a bit gritty... I like.

I'm definitely looking forward to this next year. Sword of Omens! Give me sight beyond sight! ...so I can watch it now.
