Despite the controversy behind Teen Titans GO! eschewing the Teen Titans franchise’s young adult themes in favor of slapstick comedy, there is no denying that it’s a commercial success that has built its own audience. So it is not surprising that a similar treatment is being given to the ThunderCats franchise.
Titled ThunderCats Roar!, this new kid-friendly, more comedic take on the iconic action adventure franchise has been teased by Warner Bros. Animation with a first-look footage. You can watch the teaser video below:
“I think the world that they built lends itself really well to comedy because of how silly and crazy and outlandish those ideas are and some of those settings are. But at the same time, it wouldn’t be ThunderCats if it didn’t have super cool action elements because that’s what people came back to,” producer Victor Courtright says in the video.
Victor Courtright (Pickle and Peanut) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Right Now Kapow) serve as producers, with Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) as executive producer.
