If you’ve been eager to find out when you can get your eyes on Netflix’s upcoming reboot of Voltron: Legendary Defender, the wait is over.
During a panel at Wondercon last weekend, the Voltron showrunners announced the animated television show would be landing in our Netflix queues on June 10. Loosely based on a Japanese anime, the original show followed a team of young pilots who command a multi-part super robot named Voltron and (essentially) fight to save parts of the universe.
Netflix’s turn will see five unsuspecting teenagers transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war. There they will become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle. To be their most effective, and form the mighty warrior known as Voltron: Legendary Defender, they’ll need to harness true power of teamwork and unite to protect the universe from evil.
Netflix has partnered with Dreamworks on this Joaquim Dos Santos (Legend of Korra) produced series, starring Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Lance, Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream) as Pidge, Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Shiro, Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) as Hunk, Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Keith, Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) as Princess Allura, and Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) as Coran.
