First Look At Netflix Voltron


Check out a first look at the new Voltron that is coming to Netflix (updated with poster).

The new series is titled Voltron: Legendary Defender and will feature thirteen 22-minute episodes airing later this year. This weekend's WonderCon will debut the first footage.

"We’re trying to keep as much of that classic feel to it as we can, because ultimately we have huge amounts of nostalgia for (the original) show,” co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery told USA Today.

Voltron: Legendary Defender features the five Earth teenagers - Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro - in addition to Princess Alura. The latter five "are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic battle and become the last line of defense for Arus and other planets against an evil alien force led by King Zarkon." Alura doesn't start off as a fighter at first, but is "still a princess from a peaceful kingdom. But she’s certainly not fainting at every little thing that overwhelms her."
