CG "Thundercats" Test Footage?

Back in 2007 it was reported that Warner Bros. Pictures were working on a CG-animated “Thundercats” movie, a project that never really took off and has seemingly been forgotten. The franchise instead has moved on with a new anime-inspired, traditionally animated series on the way later this year.
