Voltron Reboot Gets Premiere Date at Netflix — Watch the First Trailer

Look alive, folks: Voltron‘s return is fast approaching.

Voltron: Legendary Defender, a reimagining of the popular 1980s cartoon, is set for a June 10 debut on Netflix.

The DreamWorks Animation reboot follows a set of teenagers who suddenly find themselves the pilots behind five robotic lions used to protect the universe from evil amid a prolonged intergalactic war.

Legendary Defender, from former Legend of Korra EPs Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, is the third offshoot of the original series following 1998’s Voltron: The Third Dimension and the 2011 NickToon Voltron Force.

Will you binge-watch all 13 episodes of the new Voltron? Hit PLAY on the trailer above (and a second clip below), then sound off in the comments.

    Glad they brought back Voltron with the Lion Force. Loved the Lions when I was a kid, got really upset when they switched over to the vehicles. This should be good. The trailer has me interested.

    hahaha I’ve watched the trailer before reading that it has the same EP from Korra. Bolin and Sokka now are in the same universe, because those to from Voltron are too copycat characters from Avatar

    I can’t wait for the new launch of great 1980’s cartoon franchise getting a new rebot for younger generations. As a kid growing up in the 80’s this one of my favorite cartoon franchises, and I can’t wait to see how the new technology will it make it look compared to the original series. I believe that the people running the rebot will give it the great respect and love that the fans of the series are expecting. It will be great to see those five robot cats up and running again.

    Love that Voltron’s back, but a little sad that the tone is so wry and self-aware. Maybe it’s just me, but I’ll miss the campy earnestness of the original.
