I saw a trailer on YouTube for Thundercats: The Movie starring Vin Diesel and Hugh Jackman.

Is this a fake trailer? Even if it is, will get to see a real movie soon?


Probably not

The trailer you are referencing is fan-made, and not an official trailer for a Thundercats movie. As James McAvoy says, while talking about how he would like to play Lion-O:

"I would love to see a Thundercats movie but it's never going to happen," McAvoy revealed in an interview. "Lion-O is something great for any actor out there" In the said fan made trailer, actors Hugh Jackman, Vin Diesel and Brad Pitt were seen in the clip which got him really excited and hoping for an announcement in 2016 for a possible "Thundercats" movie. "There is a great trailer for Thundercats where they took Brad Pitt and made him Lion-O, Hugh Jackman as Tygra and Vin Diesel as Panthro," the 35-year-old actor said.

There may have been plans for a CGI movie, but those were abandoned long ago.

In addition, there is some evidence that rumors of a live-action movie were an April Fools joke.

The trailer is not real, and there isn't really any reason to think a Thundercats movie is in production, whether animated or live-action.

  • @Richard James McAvoy, talking about how he would like to have a role in a Thundercats movie. – Adamant Apr 30 '16 at 8:40
  • @Jonah - Is there a specific reason this individual would have any special knowledge of whether the film is in production? – Valorum Apr 30 '16 at 8:49
  • @Richard - No, the quote is simply there to show that the trailer is fanmade, which is the gist of the question (until you changed it for some reason). – Adamant Apr 30 '16 at 8:50

No, as far as I know you are talking about this video. You should know that it's a fan made so again, not a real one.
But it's not that there is no such a possibility of Thundercats movie (again a rumour as stated by Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo's facebook page).
A live action movie would be good, but again, it depends on the director(to be), actors and the franchise.
