What’s the best way to celebrate America on this sure-to-be-slow movie news day? Manimals! Almost ten minutes of new footage from Cartoon Network’s reboot of the 1980s TV series ThunderCats. I didn’t much follow ThunderCats when I was kid. I was more of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-man…boy…person. In any event, if you’re looking forward to the reboot or if you want your kids to look forward to the reboot, hit the jump to check out the footage plus new images/wallpapers. ThunderCats will debut with an hour-long premiere on July 29th.
