Entertainment Weekly reports a new ThunderCats animated series, ThunderCats Roar will premiere on Cartoon Network in 2019.

They have a first look at the show and a synopsis.
“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.”
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.

I'm typically not a fan of these comedic reboots, but after watching the "sneak peek", I think this looks quite promising, at least judging by the art style, animation, and the enthusiasm of the producer when discussing it. I won't form any further judgments until we get an actual sneak peek of the show itself.

Remember when Cartoon Network funded shows that didn't feature round overly simplified designs?

I was actually relieved to see those designs. Finally there is going to be a ThunderCats property I won't want to own toys from. My budget couldn't take it.

The show looks awful.

I may not be a fan of a both Thundercats, but I have to be honest, the art style looks juvenile, it’s hard for me to see this as anything appealing, I wouldn’t be surprised if this will be similar to how TTG went.

Judging from the trailer, I guess this looks...okay? Nothing mindblowing though.

But seriously, I'm starting to get tired of the CalArts trend. All of CN's current shows already use that same type of art style (excluding TTG, Unikitty, Apple & Onion, and Mighty Magiswords). We need a variety for once.

And just like The Emoji Movie, this thing is already hated by a lot of people. It got a lot of dislikes that Warner Bros. unlisted the video.

Is it too much to ask to get Warner Brothers to do a legit ThunderCats adaption? None of the comedy stuff or anime quest nonsense? Is that too much to ask?
