Voltron Movie & TV Show


Its revival of the 80s cartoons, I just can’t believe how good this is going to be. First the Thundercats come back on Cartoon Network, and now they are bringing back Voltron, well a different bunch of people are. Now they are working on a new animated feature, and the movie is being worked on as well, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done for the movie, they want to get the right story, a character driven story, and the effects and lion robot eye candy will come together around it. It seems the people working on it will learn from the mistakes of Transformers and G.I.Joe, and Voltron is going to end up being one of the best 80’s cartoon adaptations that we’ve seen so far. Its slated to be released for the 2013 target with the TV show being a build up for it.

The new show will be called Voltron Force, and it will air 26 half-hour episodes next year on Nicktoons. I’m just hoping that both adults and kids can watch it, I don’t want it being too kiddy because its airing on Nicktoons and destroying all of my past love for Voltron, my original love of anime before I even knew that anime was. The series follows five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe. The series will remain faithful to the old show, while introducing new recruits to fight alongside the original characters.
