In January, it was reported that Voltron was coming to Netflix thanks to a deal between the streaming giant and Dreamworks. Today, the title for the new show and logo were revealed, and it’s enough to get you excited. The new show, titled “Voltron: Legendary Defender,” will follow the same format as the original show teaming teaming five teenagers to pilot giant lion robots that come together and form Voltron.
The last time fans caught a glimpse of the fighting robot was in 2011 when Voltron Force aired on Nicktoons. Sadly, the show only lasted one season and was cancelled due to poor ratings. To add insult to injury, the show ended on a cliffhanger, leaving audiences wonder what happened next. Hopefully, fans of that show will be able to get over that and gear up for the new version airing on Netflix later this year. To help them out, here is the newly released logo.
As of right now, little is still known about the upcoming series. However, coming from a network like Nicktoons and premiering on a service like Netflix definitely changes the playing field. It’s possible a more serious version of the show could emerge, but that will have to be seen. All things seem pretty positive as of right now. Netflix has produced a number of quality shows over the years and hopefully this will help revitalize the franchise. The only downside to shows airing on the streaming service is that entire seasons tend to be released all at once. This makes it easy to watch everything in one sitting (for the highly deditcated viewers). In the end, though, the choice is inevitably yours alone to make.
