Leaked Footage from a Shelved Thundercats Movie

Back in 2008 Warner Brothers began work on a CGI Thundercats movie with director Jerry O’Flaherty at the helm. A source working on the now defunct film released the work to Flixist for online posting. Two thoughts immediately come to mind: 1) It’s a good thing this movie was shelved. The footage above is pretty awful. 2) It’s a shame, because the footage above is also very promising. The look and feel of the animation is quite superb, but instead of making the movie appeal to an audience of youngsters and 30-year-old nerds who grew up with the original cartoon, it seems like WB was going for lowest common denominator.

And that’s unfortunate. Because the initial excitement from the concept artwork was off the charts. [via devour]
