New Voltron Series Coming to Netflix
I grew up in the 80s and just like most 80s kids Voltron was a huge part of my childhood along with Transformers and G.I. Joe. There has been several incarnations of the mighty robot but most have failed to connect with audiences. Well for those of you that are fans of Voltron like myself, there is some good news. It appears that DreamWorks and Netflix are working on a new Voltron series that will premiere on the streaming service sometime this year.
Not much information was released about the series other than a small statement made in a press release from Netflix which said,”Starting in 2016, Netflix will launch several new series from DWA, including a reimagining of Voltron.” A reimagining could mean a ton of different things but I think it’s safe to say that we will most likely be seeing a complete reboot of the series rather than a continuation or prequel.
It’s funny because this is definitely something that I never expected to see. For a long time there has been rumors of a Voltron movie in the works but nothing solid has ever been confirmed. I remember rumors floating around back in 2007 that the teaser footage for Cloverfield was actually for the Voltron movie before anyone really knew what it was. Same thing with Pacific Rim back in 2012 when set photos were first released.
With this being a DreamWorks production you can pretty much be sure that this will be geared towards kids, but you know I’ll still watch it. Not only that, but with a new series comes NEW TOYS!!! As always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Are you excited to see a new Voltron series coming to Netflix and what would you like to see from it?
