Form feet and legs! Form arms and body! And I’ll form the unreasonably excited fan that Voltron is making its way back to our screens later this year! In January, Netflix and DreamWorks Animation revealed that, in addition to adapting Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters, they would be teaming up for a new Voltron animated series. Now Nerdist has your exclusive first look at the show’s logo and title: Voltron: Legendary Defender.
Oh, man! I don’t know about you, but the prospect of seeing the Lion Force reunited sent a nostalgic shiver up my spine. This will mark the first new Voltron animated series since 2011’s Voltron Force, which aired on Nicktoons for one season. Little is known about the series thus far, particularly about the cast and creators, but we do know that it will follow the same classic Voltron formula of uniting five teenagers in gigantic, robotic lions to protect the universe from towering evil. Only through the power of teamwork will they be able to kick some robotic ass, take some robotic names, and stop a terrible intergalactic war.
As the late, great Billy Mays once said, “But wait, there’s more!” We will also be making a visit to DreamWorks Animation to take you behind the scenes of the forthcoming series in the weeks ahead, so let us know your most burning Voltron-related questions in the comments below.
