You might remember that a couple of months back we passed on the info for an upcoming exclusive series on Netflix that would bring Voltron back to the small screen. Well, just a couple of hours ago DreamWorks TV dropped this teaser for Voltron: Legendary Defender, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect when Netflix unveils the series on June 10th!
I think it’s safe to say that at least from what we see in this teaser it is on track to be something quite epic.
I discovered this rather nice piece from artist Khobra whilst browsing around Tumblr and I don’t really know what to make of it. I’m a big Thundercats fan but never really found a place in my heart for Voltron. This mashup gives me reason to re-think that previous judgement though!
What do you think? Would these two classic 80’s shows have worked in this format?

Stay tuned to the site, I’ll have the review for Voltron: Defender of the Universe up a bit later.
Vehicle Voltron team consisted of fifteen members, who were divided into three teams of five, known respectively as the Land, Sea, and Air Teams. Each team was specialized in gathering data or fighting in their area of expertise and could also combine their vehicles into a bigger machine. These fighter groups were:
– The Aqua Fighter (Sea Team)
– The Turbo Terrain Fighter (Land Team)
– The Strato Fighter (Air Team)
Of course, all fifteen vehicles combine to form the mighty Voltron!
