So, what? Did they just dub Lord of the Rings over a late 80's anime?

Crave interview.  Not much new, but confirmation the original theme song will be back -- of course, we already heard it at the end of that last trailer, so that was a safe assumption, but you never know with these things.

Opening titles will be 15 seconds long and will homage the old series but the producers acknowledge they will not be as awesome.

New interview.

Highlights:

  • Lion-O and Tygra as "brothers" will serve as a sort of mystery over the course of the season.
  • The Mutants will be factioned into separate armies, at least to start with.
  • The Driller will be in the new show.

And, most importantly:
  • We will learn what the fuck a samoflange is.

CBR interviews Kenney and Jelenic.  No new information but fun to watch.

Jelenic's too modest.  Of COURSE you can top the original series.

Rose-coloured glasses can be quite opaque, sometimes.

Even among the fans who spend half their time talking about how bad the original series was.

(Though I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE the crazy Bill Overgard shit in the original series.  Well, most of it.)

In regards to what it is, you can't top the original series.  Not since the state mandated drug tests.

Another interview, this one with a producer and art director.  Again, not much new info, but fun to hear what they have to say.

Still don't know what the premier date is, but it appears that we're counting down to it, because IGN has launched a new weekly series called Thunder Thursdays.

The first installment examines the new takes on the characters.  We get a bit more on each of them, mostly good (though I could sure as hell do without the Lion-O/Cheetara/Tygra love triangle), and some design sheets that I wish were bigger.

Over/Under on how long it takes Jaga to bite the dust and turn in to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

3-part pilot; Jaga dies in Act 2 and shows up as a ghost in Act 3.  In this version he'll be killed by Mumm-Ra instead of old age, and Claudus will be killed by Grune instead of staying behind while his planet explodes also old age.

Week Two: Third Earth.  With a handful of rather neat images.  I'm pretty sure that's motherfucking Snow Meow in the big group shot (along with Berbils, those fish guys from that one episode where the Thunder Tank gets trapped in an underwater ravine, and what I believe are Micrits), and the hovership could be Berserkers but would be more interesting if it were the Doomgaze.  Swordsmen Village could mean we'll see Hachiman.  Looks like a pretty good balance between old characters and new.

Also: Jackalman and Monkian have names now.  (No mention of Vultureman but presumably he'll show up later, like in the original show, except possibly with some sort of explanation on who the fuck he is and how he got there this time.)

Not much this week, but a couple creature and vehicle designs.

And we have a premier date: Friday, July 29.

Cartoon Network - THUNDERCATS - Promo.

Looks like I was wrong on my "three-part pilot" guess, but I stand by the rest of my predictions.

Curious whether Jaga or Claudus will die first; I don't expect they'll die in the same episode, but it's possible.  While the original series managed to cram an awful lot into its first episode I expect we'll see a lot more setup this time, time spent establishing Thundera and its status quo before it gets destroyed.  Hell, we don't get Grune or Claudus at all until later in the original series (though on the other hand, we DO get Panthro -- pity he's absent from yet another trailer, and I'm hoping he shows up at least by the end of the pilot).

Guessing Mumm-Ra will be released from captivity as the cliffhanger ending of the first half, which, going by my prediction that he'll kill Jaga, naturally puts that death in part 2.

Voices seem pretty good.  Cheetara not as deep-voiced as before but not bad.
