Oh. Hell. Yes. Voltron’s back, baby!
Netflix have released an official trailer for their reboot of the classic ’80s show. The new series will be titled Voltron: Legendary Defender and is slated for release on 10 June.
I remember watching he original show from the 1980s as a kid and had the most awesome 5-piece Voltron toy ever. For fans like me, this news is a shot of nostalgic excitement and only deepens this generation’s love affair with Netflix.
For those of you who aren’t clued in, the cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe was first released in 1984 and followed a team of five young astronauts who were chosen to pilot five robot lions that combined to form the ginormous Voltron and, you guessed it, defend the universe.
It was a super successful show and, like Transformers, scratched the itch we all seem to have for seeing giant robots pummel each other.
