New ThunderCats trailer sells the savage scope of combat felines

At this past weekend's WonderCon la-di-da, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network unveiled a deeper look into their updated  ThunderCats  series, which has an distinct  Avatar: The Last Airbender y vibe. And that is not a bad thing in the least. Given that  Avatar  is the best—and perhaps only—recent example of long-form storytelling for a young audience, I'd would be thrilled to pieces if these new adventures of Lion-O and his aides de camp managed to approach the depth of emotion and awesomeness of action that Nickelodeon's long-running series had.

Milla Keen on Thundercats Role

During IGN's exclusive Twitter interview with Milla Jovovich yesterday, she answered all manner of fan questions and discussed everything from Resident Evil: Afterlife stunts to her chances of surviving a zombie holocaust. But Milla's most intriguing answer came when asked who you she would choose if she could play any female action character from another movie. Her choice? Cheetara from Thundercats.
