Here’s the ThunderCats teaser video that was shown at WonderCon 2011 this past weekend. We’ve seen some of this footage before, but now we have more of an idea of story, action, and so on.

Time to share your thoughts…
Before you have a freakout, this footage is from a now defunct Warner Bros. project that would have focused on Lion-O coming of age.
AGAIN – THIS IS TEST FOOTAGE ONLY
Last week we showed off the new Thundercats look, but as some of you noticed, Snarf was noticeably absent from the image. Fear not Dear Spoilerites! Warner Bros. may have unintentionally released Snarf’s redo as part of the packaging on the ThunderTank.
Take the jump for the full ThunderTank package.
Warner Bros. Animation has released the first official image of the new Thundercats.
Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C’s use of the Japanese animated artistry of anime, “ThunderCats” characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.
The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.
“ThunderCats” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”). Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”) are the producers.
