A betrayal. A reluctant leader. A journey like no other. A roaring return for a mighty menagerie of animation icons. The Thundercats are back in an all-new animated series that purrs with sensational stories starring favorite characters. The exciting first eight episodes roar into action with the evil Mumm-Ra's attack on the city of Thundera that destroys the cat civilization, leaving only a band of survivors - Tygra, Panthro, Snarf, Cheetara, Wily Kit and Wily Kat - and young prince Lion-O, the surviving ruler of his people.
As the threats of Mumm-Ra ring in their ears, these determined cats know what they must do: find the Book of Omens, which holds the key to their future. Using his powerful Sword of Omens to achieve "sight beyond sight," Lion-O guides his friends across the lands, facing vicious foes and making new allies. Prowl with the Thundercats through their all-new adventure series, to the legendary temple that conceals their ancient secrets!
