Netflix and Dreamworks Assemble ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Trailer

Netflix and Dreamworks are continuing their fruitful relationship with a new animated series based on the 1980s classic Voltron, aptly titled Voltron: Legendary Defender. The new series is produced by Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, two of the key minds behind the fan favorite shows Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. The first trailer has just hit, and it looks totally awesome and fun: If you’re too young to remember Voltron, think of it as one of the series that influenced Power Rangers in a big way; it’s about five teenagers recruited to pilot giant lion robots that form together into a fighting machine that defends the galaxy from evil. Voltron: Legendary Defender is set to debut on Netflix with an hour-long origin special titled “The Rise of Voltron” on June 10, followed by 10 half hour episodes. With a Power Rangers reboot on the way and a new Voltron series imminent, it’s clear that giant robots fighting stuff will never go out of style. And we’re better for it. (Source: Dreamworks TV)
