    The content of this video is only available for audiences in the United States. Maybe you should use a different video source so your European users, for example like me can watch the video too. :-)

    okay it’s already on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAfrlyCGtZs) but blocked there too.

    I think it’s crazy to block access to a trailer!!

    My first impression is Lord of the Rings meets Rankin-Bass, which is not a bad thing. RB’s animation style may have been highly stylized, but the writing was pretty good.

    Looks really, really cool. Is that Christopher Lee’s voice heard in the narration, or was I mistaken?

    Looks way more epic and unified than the original, and I like the designs. Here’s hoping the series’ writing lives up to the promise of the trailer.

    Why do they have to make Lion-O look like such a wiener. In the original he got buff when he hit puberty in the capsule, so hopefully something like this happens? The idea of a flawed hero bums me out. Unknowing or unproven hero, sure. But, “Waaa, I can’t do this alone, wwwwaaaaaaa!” Quit being a wuss.

    I think this is a continuation of the Thundercats original series,(tossing out the reforming of Thundera from the first series), I like Mumera’s use of words from the original series “the young whelp”with the young thundercat. That young thundercat looks like Lion-O’s Son. As far as Panthro, one can only wait and see if they have him in the series…. They had Mumera, Slithe, Tygra, Older Lion-O, Cheetara, looked like Wily Kit&Kat, don’t know if the elderly thundercat is Jaga or Lynx-O. Wait and see if they can capture the magic, either better or just as good as the He-Man: Masters of the Universe from 2000-02 that recaptured the magic of the original Filmation 80’s He-Man MOTU and built more upon the mythos of the series…

    The only thing I don’t care for (without having seen the show yet, so I know I know) is that if they aren’t having them leave Thundara with Jaga at the helm and basic stable of characters to land in a new planet, New Thundara, then that raises some questions. Like why would you allow Wily Kit and Wily Kat to fight if you have a platoon of soldiers that can fight in their stead? I understand letting Panthro and everyone else fight if you need generals or frontline badasses, but if there are so many people/cats roaming around it takes away from the need of the smaller group. I’m sure they’ll address it and my concerns will probably be unfounded but doesn’t mean I can’t voice them. I loved the original series so I’ll be checking this out either way.
