This is an age of reboots and remakes, no matter how much people criticize this trend, but we all eventually pay for tasting that sweet nostalgia of good old days! But we must agree on the fact that all of the rebooted, sequels or the remakes are not that bad, some of the good examples are rebooted, Star Trek Movies, Transformer movies, revamped animated Voltron show and obviously the new Star Wars sequels. Hollywood and Netflix clearly know that there is a gold mine hidden behind the live-action adaptation of the 80’s cartoons and there are tons of great projects that are under works right now! Here are the names of the 80’s cartoons that are going to have their movie version by 2019-2020:-
1) ThunderCats Live-Action Movie By Late 2019.
Thunder Cats is probably one of the best 80’s cartoons of all time, and it is a miracle that this series still doesn’t have its live-action version yet. There have been many attempts to create a movie around this show, but these projects never left the ground. According to Hollywood Reporter, the Mummy series director Stephen Sommers is going to direct the Thundercats movie with Sony as the funding studio. If we go by the rumors, many A-listers like The Rock, Hugh Jackman, and Vin Diesel were interested in this movie after reading the script. We are still waiting for the latest update from Sommers or the Sony execs on the release date, but one of the earlier interviews in 2016, Sommers had stated that they are targeting to release the movie in late 2019 or 2020.
2. Voltron Live Action Movie – 2020!
Voltron’s amazing storyline and well-written characters may have been over-shadowed by the glamor of Transformers and the Power Rangers from past two decades, but its recently rebooted animation is very well received by the critics and longtime fans alike! The Voltron’s animated show is dominating the Netflix with its season 2. The genius writer behind the first two X-Men movies, David Hayter, has finished the script for the Live-Action Voltron movie. Mark Gordon is going to be the Primary producer, and Dreamworks is the publishing studio. Most probably, Voltron movie will be a big-budget effort, and according to the latest updates, we may see Voltron Movie in the theaters by early 2020. There hasn’t been any news on the cast choices yet.
