ThunderCats fans, this is your day -- the premiere episode of the highly-anticipated new show is airing today, July 29, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT) on the Cartoon Network! To celebrate, MTV Geek's sharing some video interviews we took with the ThunderCats cast and crew recently at San Diego Comic-Con!
First up is classic Lion-O voice actor Larry Kenney, who plays patriarch Claudius on the new show: "The fan excitement is growing, and everybody is ready for the new ThunderCats!"
Emmanuelle Chriqui chats up her role as Cheetara in the new ThunderCats: "She's a really really strong woman with a really good heart!"
Producer Michael Jelenic tells us what old-school fans of ThunderCats can expect from the new series, "I think if you're coming to this new version of ThunderCats you're going to find that we're really trying to take that old mythology and modernize it for today's audience."
Ethan Spaulding, another co-producer on ThunderCats, talks about the world of the new show: "We can start at level one -- the medieval times of the cats -- and journey on to the tech, as Mumm-Ra's pyramid is opened and technology is introduced..."
And series art director Dan Norton commented on the style of the new ThunderCats: "One thing I really wanted to get across is that these are animal humanoids, and the way that they run, the way that they walk, the way that they react...it's more animalistic."
