ComicBook.com debuted the Legendary Defender footage, which features a pretty big callback to the original Voltron series from the ’80s. While these clips are intentionally vague, there are some potential spoilers ahead. Consider yourselves warned!
If you’re still with us, the video picks up shortly after the season 1 cliffhanger found the Voltron team forcibly separated and scattered throughout the universe. Obviously they’re going to come back together, as Voltron is seen fully formed in this trailer. But what if a member of the team doesn’t survive? Fans of the ’80s Voltron may recall that Sven didn’t last long on the team. From the way that this video was edited, it certainly implies that Shiro, Sven’s modern counterpart, may meet a similar fate.
It’s actually a little frustrating that we don’t get to see more. And so far, there are no indications that Zarkon’s son, Lotor will finally be making his debut on the show. That’s something we want to see, but we’re also very intrigued by Zarkon’s ties to Voltron itself as the original Black Paladin. If that’s true, then who were the other Paladins?
Voltron: Legendary Defender will be the focus of a panel at New York Comic-Con on Friday, October 7 at 1pm. A special print of almost all of the Legendary Defender characters will be given away to all fans in attendance. Presumably we’ll get some season 2 announcements there as well.
