ThunderCats are on the mov(i)e! After years of false begins and bulletins that didn’t go wherever, evidently the beloved ‘80s cartoon has an enormous sized champion behind it. Adam Wingard, director of Godzilla vs. Kongis engaged on a ThunderCats movie that might be a hybrid dwell motion/CGI film. Wingard will direct the ThunderCats film and co-write the script with Simon Barrett.
This raises plenty of questions in regards to the movie, particularly contemplating the latest flux in ThunderCats media. The unique ThunderCats was about as excellent an instance of ‘80s motion journey cartoon sequence will be and the early 2010s reboot sequence took a principally critical strategy to the franchise with a extra deeply layered story. Then in 2020 ThunderCats Roar was an enormous departure, that includes a way more comedic tone and elegance than the earlier sequence.
The flexibility of Thundercats makes us surprise what tonal strategy the brand new movie will take, and whether or not it is going to be geared extra in direction of adults or children. Once we spoke with Wingard about Godzilla vs. Kong he clarified that, “I don’t need [ThunderCats] to be solely accessible to children,” stressing that children will like it however he desires to make a film for everyone, particularly those that grew up with the unique sequence.
“I do need this to really feel like once you watch it, you’re watching the precise ‘80s cartoon sequence dropped at life,” Wingard tells Den of Geekteasing that “it’s going to be an journey film.” That’s fairly broad however ThunderCats is completely fitted to an epic journey.
Once we’re going to see the movie is a complete different query. Proper now Wingard is engaged on a Face/Off sequel and it feels like that must be accomplished earlier than he can get to work on Lion-O and mates.
