Netflix has really been dishing out some great original programming and giving the geeks of the world awesome shows like Marvel’s Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Now it appears as though Dreamworks has tossed their hat into the game and giving us a brand new take on the classic Voltron character. The trailer for this series was just recently released and is being presented to you below. Check it out.
About The Series: Voltron: Legendary Defender is an upcoming American animated television series produced by DreamWorks Animation and World Events Productions and animated by Studio Mir. It is reboot of the 1984 Voltron series, and its animation is a mix of anime influence for characters and background and CGI for Voltron action sequences. The series is set to premiere on Netflix on June 10, 2016 and consists of 13 episodes.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I should admit that I was not someone who actually watched Voltron way back in the day and that my own cartoons when I sat for them were focused on the “GI Joe”, “Transformers”, “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” and the “X-Men” series. There were a few others but you get the general idea. I loved the idea behind Voltron though as I grew up a fan of the mighty Shogun Warriors and read all of the issues of their comic book when it was out on the stands. This trailer looks pretty good so when the series goes live I will likely give it a few episodes to see if I like it. What did you readers think of the trailer? Do you like it? Will you be binge watching the show when Netflix delivers all of the episodes in June? Let me know in the comments section below.
