ThunderCats: The Complete Series (2011 Remake Version/Warner Archive Blu-ray Set)

Picture: A+ Sound: B Extras: D Episodes: A

PLEASE NOTE: This Blu-ray set is now only available from Warner Bros. through their Warner Archive series and can be ordered from the link below.

The ThundercCats once ruled Third Earth, that is until Mumm-ra and the Lizards came and destroyed their kingdom. Now, Prince Lion-O and the remaining ThunderCats journey to recover the Book of Omens and find the stones of power to fight Mumm-ra and his evil armies. As Lion-O learn truth about their past and what it means to be the King of the ThunderCats, he learns there is more to life than just fighting.

Beneath a thin veneer of swords and sorcery, there is hidden a world of high technology within the world of ThunderCats. Lion-O is the brave, but naive young prince who strives avenge the death of his father and rebuild the Kingdom of Thundera. Tygra is Lion-O's adopted big brother who an expert in stealth and tactics but is always competing with Lion-O and questioning his decisions. Cheetara can use super speed and is the object of affection between Lion-O and Tygra. Panthro is their tech expert. Kit and Kat are the thieves of the group. And finally there is Snarf the mascot of the team. Together they help Lion-O mature and become the leader he was destined to be.

I watched the ThunderCats when I was a kid and love the series. This was a beautiful remake of the series with modern animation and a whole new world with a fresh new story. It follows the traditional story of a group of heroes working together to protect the land and it's people from the forces of evil. As the characters grow and mature, each lesson/episode they learn something to help them work together with the different races. It is only a pity and shame that they weren't able to continue to make a second season and it sorta ended on a cliffhanger. The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is stunning, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo track rich and warm with Pro Logic-type surrounds, but there are sadly no extras. Hope we get the original 1985 series issued this way.
