Netflix released two bits of information regarding their exclusive Voltron series from DreamWorkstv: A trailer and a release date.
June 10th is the official release date of the new Voltron series featuring the 5 Lions to combine as Voltron, The Legendary Defender. The Voltron trailer showcases the original characters in a cleaner animation style, with just enough 3D effect to make it look updated, but giving you the classic feel.
Five Earth teens – Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro – who become the last line of defense for the galaxy in an intergalactic battle against the evil alien force led by King Zarkon. (IMDB.com, Voltron 2016)
Voltron: Legendary Defender is a revitalization of the 1980s series originally broadcast in Japan as “Beast King GoLion”, which subsequently made its way to the U.S. under the name of “Voltron”. The series ran for 124 episodes, but helped pave the way for other Japanimation series to come to the U.S. and inspired countless other TV shows.
