THUNDERCATS Movie Writer Simon Barrett Says Fans Are "Not Ready" For Adam Wingard's Adaptation

It was recently announced that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a feature adaptation of classic '80s animated series ThunderCats, and writer Simon Barrett has now teased what fans can expect...

ThunderCats fans have been waiting for an update on plans for a feature adaptation of the beloved '80s animated series for a long time, and back in March, we got word that Godzilla Vs. Kong director Adam Wingard is working on a CGI/animated hybrid for Warner Bros. with long-time collaborator Simon Barrett.

We still don't know very much about this new take on the feline heroes, and Barrett wasn't about to let any cats (Thunder or otherwise) out of the bag when he spoke to ComicBook.com. However, he did hype the project up by suggesting that Wingard's adaptation will exceed all expectations.

"I will say this, our ThunderCats adaptation is going to be really, really cool. I don't think people are at all prepared for how long Adam Wingard has spent thinking about ThunderCats. They are not ready for Adam's ThunderCats movie. It is going to destroy."

Wingard actually did give us some idea of how "obsessed" he is with ThunderCats back when the movie was first announced.

"This is a huge passion thing for me. Nobody on this planet knows or has thought as much about Thundercats as I have. They gave me the reins. I saw this as an opportunity to do a new type of fantasy sci-fi spectacle film that people have never seen before."

Are you looking forward to seeing what the GVK director has in store for the ThunderCats?

Just in case you're not familiar with the cartoon, ThunderCats follows a team of cat-like humanoids (Lion-O, Cheetarah, Panthro, Tigra, Jaga, Wilykit, Wilykat and Snarf) who leave the dying planet of Thundera in search of a new home for their species. They settle on a planet that comes to be known as Third Earth, where they battle Mumm-Ra and their old enemies, The Mutants, for control of Lion-O's Sword of Omens.
