Thundercats Movie Announcement!!!

WHOA!!!

Talk about revenge of the 80s toy lines… and this is one has ENORMOUS potential…

They’re doing it– making a THUNDERCATS movie!!

Here’s the word from Variety:

Studio has optioned a script by tyro scribe Paul Sopocy to turn the popular 1980s animated series and toy line into a live action feature.

Warner-based Paula Weinstein will produce through her Spring Creek Prods. banner, along with Dick Robertson and Lew Korman.

Property revolves around a 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. Once crash-landing on another planet, Third Earth, they must thwart Mumm-Ra, an evil sorcerer, bent on killing them off.

Sopocy has written the script as an origin story expanding on the major heroes and villains from the animated series, with the plot focusing on Lion-O coming of age as the leader of the Thundercats.

Sounds about right to me!!! This could end up being a visually stunning movie… a good mix of CGI and makeup effects is a MUST… but hey, for now, let’s just enjoy the news and wait patiently for the script leak, right?

    Thunda-Thunda-Thunda-Thundaaaa Caaats!

    You know, as much as it thrills me to see my youth relived in real-time, I can’t help but wonder if there are no new ideas worth exploring. I mean, does Hollywood do anything but pillage the past?

    Snarf?

    Ha… I definitely know what you mean, but its tough to get down about it when you think about how cool the movie could end up being.

    It is a little frightening though, to realize that only a handful of kids’ properties (Harry Potter, Pokemon– maybe) from the last two decades have any kind of real any kind of mass appeal or potential lasting power. Any obvious ones I’m overlooking? Seems like the toy companies would rather just rehash old lines.

    To make the problem worse, I’m doing a post on the Top 10 Toy & Comic properties that HAVEN’T been developed yet for tomorrow.

    Yes, I agree. Thundercats: The Movie should be great. Hell, I’ll see it just for the nostalgia of it all. I mean, the Transformers movie caught my attention, and I didn’t even play with them! I was more of a Go-Bots guy but also watched the Transformers cartoon.

    And you’ve hit on something by acknowledging that there’s only a few of today’s cartoons/toys that will have any lasting power. But that’s hard to call from our present day. Two quick examples to illustrate my point: I was at the laundry-mat a few weeks ago and got chatting with a mother and her 5 or 6 year old son. He was playing with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (one of the new ones), and he didn’t believe me when I told him that I used to watch that show too. And the other example: my girlfriend’s oldest son was singing some song that used SuperTramp lyrics. He refused to accept that it was from an album written in the seventies. He actually got rather offended by the idea that the whole “take a look at my girlfriend” lyric was written a long, long time ago.

    So, I wonder what cartoons/comics from today will last. I think Harry Potter is a sure bet, but I’d be surprised if Pokemon lasts. I mean, could we have guessed that Strawberry Shortcake would be making a comeback? Or My Little Ponies?

    Anyway, I look forward to tomorrow’s list. I’ve a few ideas as to what might be on your Top 10 but will wait and see. Surely, I’ll be checking back.
