‘ThunderCats Roar’ to debut on Cartoon Network May 23
Beat the lockdown blues with this (rebooted) blast from the past! The time has come for Pinoys to once again hear the roar with the all-new action-comedy series, ThunderCats Roar, premiering on Saturday, 23 May, only on Cartoon Network.
Staying true to the premise of the beloved original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, WilyKit and WilyKat — barely escape the sudden destruction of their home world, Thundera, only to crash land on the mysterious and exotic planet of Third Earth.
Lion-O, the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, attempts to lead the team as they make this planet their new home. However, a bizarre host of creatures and villains stand in their way, including the evil Mumm-Ra, Third Earth’s wicked ruler who will let nothing, including the ThunderCats, stop his tyrannical reign over the planet.
Bursting with over-the-top action and razor-sharp comedy, ThunderCats Roar boasts fresh and vibrant character designs along with a dynamic storytelling tone that promises to reignite the passionate fanbase of these iconic characters and introduce the legacy of the ThunderCats to a whole new generation.
Victor Courtright (Pickle and Peanut) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Right Now Kapow) serve as producers, with Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) as executive producer.
