I’m not gonna lie, I missed the whole Voltron rage growing up, so I asked my husband about it. Apparently, it was a really big deal pre-dating the Transformers even! Recently, he parted with a Voltron watch that he had held onto since he was a kid. He got $150 for it on eBay! So yeah, there is a huge audience out there for Voltron!
The universe’s greatest protector will rise again in the all-new series DREAMWORKS VOLTRON LEGENDARY DEFENDER, premiering June 10, exclusively on Netflix. Witness the rebirth of the legend with this ambitious reimagining of the fan-favorite science-fiction saga, promising galaxies worth of action, comedy, and adventure, as good battles evil in an intergalactic war ten thousand years in the making. These series will launch with an hour-long origin story called “The Rise of Voltron,” and will be followed by 10 episodes.
The storyline is that five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as Voltron.
