First ThunderCats Remake Trailer is Loose

Cartoon Network aired the much-awaited first trailer of the new ThunderCats cartoon on Friday night (2/25/11). The video of it below doesn't look like an officially released trailer, as it wasn't uploaded by Cartoon Network, but the quality is decent. We finally get to see Lion-O, Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, Snarf, and the Sword of Omens in snippets of action, along with very brief glimpses of Mumm-Ra. For the first time we also get to see Wily Kit, Wily Kat, Jaga, Claudus, enslaved mutants (no wonder they hate the ThunderCats), and a ton of other Thundarian civilians. And are the civilians fighting the ThunderCats? Drama! If the story follows similarly to the original, then all those Thundarians are going to die at some point. It looks great so far, I just wish it had a premiere date for the series.
