Three To Make Ready: Thundercats, Ho!
Following hot on the heels of their recent announcements of live-action adaptations of other animated favorites Teen Titans and He-Man , Warner Brothers is bringing the big cats to the silver screen, by way of producer Paula Weinstein (Blood Diamond) and scriptwriter Paul Sopocy.
No anticipated release date has been announced, and the movie’s plotline currently stands as an origin story of the group of humanoid cats (with feline names like Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro and Cheetara) who must flee their planet of Thundera after it’s destroyed, with the plot focusing on Lion-O coming of age as the leader of the Thundercats.
Update: The Variety story now specifically identifies this as a CGI-animated feature rather than a live-action adaptation.
