Posted over at Flixist, the footage shows Lion-O practicing with the Sword of Omens, only to be interrupted by the reptilian villain Slithe (who also sports a new look for the CGI film) and dropping the sword. After brawling a bit on the side of a canyon, Lion-O recovers the Sword of Omens and issues the familiar “Thunder… Thunder… ThunderCats… Ho!” call.
The film’s new “ThunderCats” logo is then revealed, and when the action resumes, Lion-O is crouching over Slithe’s unconscious body.
Initially intended to be a directing vehicle for longtime art director Jerry O’Flaherty, “ThunderCats” has been stalled for almost four years now. However, as readers are well aware, a brand new “ThunderCats” animated series is well on its way and will kick off later this year on Cartoon Network.
