A possible test footage from the proposed "Thundercats" CGI movie has landed online. Debuted by Flixist, the video shows young Lion-O practicing with his sword before another character interrupts him. They are later involved in a small fight which ends with Lion-O poking fun at his now-harmless rival.
The footage looks very different from the upcoming animated series, but it is not clear how old the footage is. And while the video gives evidence that the film was worked on after it was announced in 2007, the project is now put on hold.
Video-game art director Jerry O'Flaherty was attached to direct the "Thundercats" movie. The story revolves around a group of humanoid cats (with feline names like Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro and Cheetara) who must flee their planet of Thundera after it's destroyed.
