As expected, with the new Thundercats 2011 Cartoon coming this Fall, Warner Home Video is planning on re-releasing the original series on DVD. Thanks to a report from TVShowsOnDVD.com, we have the details. The series will be released in small 2-disc sets containing 12 episodes each. Each season will be comprised of roughly 5 sets.
From the sounds of it, there is nothing new compared to the original releases, save for the smaller sets and redesigned box art. Thundercats Season 1: Volume 1 is scheduled fro release on July 12, 2011 at an MSRP of $19.97 (most stores will likely have it cheaper). Here’s what is included:
Springing into action: the first animated adventures of the feline-inspired fantasy! A noble band of survivors from the peaceful world of Thundera bravely faces off against vicious mutants intent on destroying them. Make way for exotic creatures, mystical powers and action-packed battles of good versus evil in the exciting saga of the Thundercats!
In these first-season adventures – 12 Episodes on 2 Discs – from the dynamic animated series, the Thundercats adopt Third Earth as their new home and encounter alien beings galore…some friendly, some looking for a fight! And while they brave their strange surroundings, their young leader Lion-O struggles with his new responsibilities as head of their foundling civilization. Crash with these cats for Over 4 Hours of Classic Cartoon Thrills!
