For people of a certain age-demographic the possibility of a live action or animated Thundercats movie has always been something of a “we want to see it but they’ll just screw it up” kind of thing.? The cartoon show is ridiculous, make no mistake about it.? But it was thrilling for an eight-year-old.
Wormy TV imagines what a live action movie might look like with Brad Pitt as Lion-O, Vin Diesel as Panthro, Hugh Jackman as Tigra, a CGI Snarf, and I’m not sure who’s playing Cheetara or Wily Kat and Wily Kit.? It’s a fairly well done mashup of movies, voice over and dialogue from the cartoon and special effects done frame by frame in Photoshop.
It took him a year and a half, on and off, to complete this three minute trailer.
Nothing against Vin Diesel, but I always imagined Ving Rhames as Panthro in the live-action Thundercats movie which plays in my head from time to time.
