‘Voltron’ Details Revealed at WonderCon

DreamWorks Animation pulled back the curtain and unveiled some of the details of its upcoming Netflix Original Series, Voltron: Legendary Defender at WonderCon in L.A. over the weekend. This included a special sneak peek at the new 13-episode series and the premiere date announcement, with the rebooted toon set to debut June 10.

The release date was revealed during a special Voltron panel with executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick — all of whom are veterans of the acclaimed Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra. The panelists also introduced voice cast members Tyler Labine (Hunk/Yellow Lion), Josh Keaton (Shiro/Black Lion), Jeremy Shada (Lance/Blue Lion), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Pidge/Green Lion), Kimberly Brooks (Princess Allura) and Rhys Darby (Coran) — with Steven Yeun (Keith/Red Lion) checking in with a surprise video greeting.

“As children of the ’80s who grew up with Voltron, what was there not to love? You had 5 awesome lions, piloted by 5 awesome heroes who combined to form a giant, sword wielding Titan!,” say Dos Santos. “It unapologetically married Sci-fi and Fantasy in one incredibly over the top, bombastic package. Fans of the new series [Voltron: Legendary Defender] can look for us to keep all those elements, but also expect a much more fleshed out universe with a rich backstory and characters who will evolve over the course of the series.”
