First Look At Netflix Voltron Series

Earlier this year Netflix announced the production of a brand new animated series based off of the popular 80s cartoon Voltron. The new series will be titled Voltron: Legendary Defender and is set to premier sometime later this year. Since the first announcement fans have been eagerly awaiting a glimpse of the mighty robot and we finally got one. Netflix has released it’s first official image of the iconic robot and I have mixed feelings about it.

It was hard to tell what to expect from this new series but fans will be pleased to know that the lions are back. I’m glad they are but I can’t tell if I like this look or not. Apparently this is supposed to be a more fleshed out series centered around Princess Allura (The blue lion) with all the other pilots having in depth back stories as well. That sounds interesting to me but I’m not sure I love this art style. It looks very Disney and I’m not sure if that is a great fit considering the original was done in an anime art style.

Netflix plans to release series footage tomorrow at Wonder Con so if when it hits the web I will update you guys with the footage. I will be able to make a better judgement call after that. Voltron: Legendary Defender will consist of 13 episodes for the first season and no word as of yet if there will be a second. It probably all depends on how successful it is with it’s initial release.

So check out the official image below and as always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Do you like the look of the new Voltron and what are your hopes for the new series?
