“Thundercats” Intro Gets Fan 3D CG Remake

Earlier this year, Youtube artist Mike Booth decided to learn how to use 3D animation software like Blender (and its MB-Labs plugin) and Adobe After Effects in the hope of doing some simple effects work. However he “got a little bit carried away” he says.

The fruits of his obsession have now been released – a 3D CG animated fan remake of the opening credits of famed 1980s animated TV series “Thundercats” which has now gone online via his YouTube channel. The project is a fan film made by and for fellow fans and is not associated or connected with Warner Bros. Television.

The series remains a firm nostalgic favorite, in part thanks to the iconic theme tune which you can hear in the clip, but has never been adapted into live-action or for the big screen at any point. It followed a team of cat-like humanoid aliens forced to abandon their dying home world and landing on Third Earth. There they take on a demonic, mummified sorcerer known as Mumm-Ra.

Check out both the trailer, and a comparison clip with the original animated opening below:
