Canned ThunderCats Movie Test Footage Gets LeakedPosted 9:42 pm on Monday, February 14th, 2011 by Mike Villarreal
Back in 2007, Warner Bros. had greenlit a ThunderCats reboot that was to be directed by Gears of War and Unreal Tournament art director, Jerry O’Flaherty. The script was written by Paul Sopocy, who wrote a couple of episodes for the Elvira TV series and pretty much nothing else worth mentioning. The film was planned to be the story of Lion-O’s origin, from young cub to his appointed as Lord of the ThunderCats.
At Comic-Con 2009, concept art began to surface from the production but then out of nowhere the project was on hold.
Last week, the guys over that Flixist received an interesting email from an anonymous source claiming to have test footage from the lost ThunderCats CG movie. These claims turned out to be actually true. So at last, we will finally get a first glimpse of what could have been the ThunderCats movie…..
O.o……………WHAT THE F#$@ WAS THAT?! That was just awful. I felt like I was watching a teenaged angst version of The Lion King crossed with Dragonball Evolution. There is no way the new cartoon could be half as bad as this was. So here’s to the new cartoon coming out this November.
