Dreamworks gives first look at new “Voltron” series with first image
Fans of ’80’s nostalgia have much to look forward to this year, as the beloved “Voltron: Defender of the Universe” animated series is getting a reboot, and we finally have our first tease of what the titular mech will look like.
The Nerdist got the lucky scoop on this piece of news, which you can see below:
There is your first peek at what Voltron will look like once he is fully assembled (a bit curvier and more organic-looking than his original incarnation), as well as the sleek logo. Nothing else is known about the show at this time, but the word on the street is that this is planned to be a “re-imagining” of the original series. Additional announcements are expected to come out in the coming weeks.
The show is attributed to a deal between Dreamworks and Netflix with the intent to double their original content in 2016, which also will include a show based on Guillermo del Toro’s “Trollhunters” project. The deal will also include new shows based on pre-existing Dreamworks shows, as well as older films in their library.
“Voltron: Legendary Defender” is the first time since 2011 that we have had a new Voltron cartoon, the last one being Nickelodeon’s “Voltron Force,” which sadly only lasted a single season.
