BEAT the lockdown blues with this (rebooted) blast from the past! The time has come for Pinoys to once again hear the roar with the all-new action-comedy series, “ThunderCats Roar,” premiering on May 23 on Cartoon Network.
Staying true to the premise of the beloved original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, WilyKit and WilyKat — 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. However, 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.
Bursting with over-the-top action and razor-sharp comedy, “ThunderCats Roar” boasts fresh and vibrant character designs along with a dynamic storytelling tone that promises to reignite the passionate fanbase of these iconic characters and introduce the legacy of the ThunderCats to a whole new generation.
