Netflix is bringing a new collection of episodes from the original Voltron, hand-picked by the creative team that’s brought the iconic series back to life. To celebrate, we sat down with Legendary Defender executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery to reflect on the original show, and exactly how it…
Running around, bashing down doors with a giant sword in hand is generally frowned upon in modern society. So if you’re dealing with a secret He-Man fantasy you’re dying to live out, why not fill your pocket with a bunch of tiny swords that can open doors without destroying them?
Last year’s first season of Voltron: Legendary Defender was a solid start for rebooting Voltron, and its second season is much the same in terms of fun, solid giant robot action. But it’s made even better by expanding its scope, telling richer stories, and focusing more on character development, which turns an already…
When we last saw our brave paladins in Voltron: Legendary Defender, they’d been scattered off to regions unknown after their battle with Zarkon. But it turns out that being separated and flung away to distant parts of the galaxy may come second to the immediate problem of “being eaten by alien wildlife” for at least…
When Voltron: Legendary Defender comes back for a second season later this month, the five paladins who pilot the series’ lion mechs will be in very different places. That doesn’t matter to the show’s villain, though. He’s going to hound them to the ends of the galaxy.
The phrase “live-action Voltron movie” is one of those mythic internet movie stories. Every few years, it pops up, looks around, and goes back into its hole. Well, here’s its latest appearance.
One of the rare things we disliked about the first season of Netflix and Dreamwork’s new Voltron show was basically that it ended far too abruptly—and we really wanted more. The good news is that more is on the way real very soon, and we’ve got a tiny sneak peek of what’s to come.
Good news! Dreamworks and Netflix’s updated take on Voltron isn’t just coming back, it’s coming back even sooner than we expected: Season two will begin in late 2016.
Lions were found and heads were formed when Voltron returned to TV this month with the arrival of Dreamworks’ reboot, Legendary Defender, on Netflix. Even if you were never a fan of the classic cartoon, it’s well worth a binge-watch, but there are still a few bugs in this debut season. Here’s what worked and what…
The Men at Arms folks can retire now. Not only did they faithfully recreate the blazing sword from Voltron, but they took “blazing” in the best, most literal way, in the sense that the blade itself is always enveloped by flames. It seems extremely dangerous but it’s also so damn cool.
With the Netflix-funded resurrection of Voltron, there’s a renewed interest in toys that all merge together to form a giant menacing mech. But menacing isn’t quite the best way to describe this towering robot made up of transforming characters from Disney’s Toy Story. Cute? Colorful? Must-have? Those are all better.
Because Sideshow Collectibles has created a 27-inch-tall(!) statue of Voltron, Defender of the Universe, that will take care of $1,250 of the dollars that are apparently burning a hole in your wallet, purse, or checking account.
Voltron fans have been waiting to see their favorite property resurrected for a long time. Rumors of movies have come and gone, but finally, on June 10, a new show is coming to Netflix. To celebrate, Voltron is coming to another new medium: an art gallery.
What we’ve got is the sizzle reel that was originally shown during the WonderCon panel for the upcoming show—no dialogue, but the animation from Studio Mir (Legend of Korra) is just as good as you’d expect from them.
Summer always feels so full of things we should be doing, and yet, when there’s so much new television, why should we even bother to leave the house? There’s a bevy of new series about the supernatural, there are some welcome returns, including Mr. Robot. But this summer’s biggest show is the long-awaited Preacher—…
