I grew up watching Voltron in the 80′s and loved the shit out of it. 5 five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe. What’s not to love? Hehe, oh man…I’m getting all nostalgic replaying the theme opener in my head. Anyway, a live-action Voltron flick has been rumored for years. It will eventually happen and it will undoubtedly suck, no 80’s gold has been served well in the Noughties ( 00’s). However, fan-films are always there to save the day. And here’s a nifty Voltron short film created by YouTube user alexalbrecht00 called Voltron: The End.
Unfortunately, there is no action, nor shots of Voltron in full. It’s just 3 minutes of the dude who plays Detective Lassiter on Psych (Luke FACT: Psych is in my top 5 fav. shows.) regaining consciousness in a Voltron battle lion after an “accident”. He has to decide does he live a few more minutes or try to tell the world what happened… the end is only the beginning. Something like that.
Uh… is it me or did Lassie say “what whores lay ahead?”
There was more drama in this clip than in the last two Transformers films. As someone growing up with Voltron, this was a satisfying cocktease of what could be.
