ThunderCats Roar stars Max Mittelman (Justice League Action) as Lion-O and Wilykat, Erica Lindbeck (DC Super Hero Girls) as Cheetara and Wilykit, Patrick Seitz (Justice League Action) as Tygra and Mumm-Ra, and Chris Jai Alex (Star Wars: Battlefront II) as Panthro.
“Staying true to the premise of the original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, Wilykat, and Wilykit — 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. 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.
Cartoon Network just announced a brand new ThunderCats animated series called ThunderCats Roar, and the Internet isn’t shy about giving their opinions on it.
The new series boasts an art style that has more in common with something like The Amazing World of Gumball than the original series longtime fans grew up with, and the tone is much more self-aware and comedic than that previous entry. Some are responding to that in positive ways and others are a bit negative about the whole thing, and others are just happy that 2019 will see the introduction of a new ThunderCats series.
