The popular 1980s cult classic cartoon franchise Voltron is coming back! The new series titled Voltron: Legendary Defender is set to premiere on Netflix later this year with 13 brand new episodes. Late yesterday after noon via USA Today, Netflix released the first official image for the revamp of the classic television show. The first official Image features Voltron fully formed in a battle of some sort.
While talking about keeping the new version of the show in-line with the original's feel, Co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery had this to say:
“We’re trying to keep as much of that classic feel to it as we can, because ultimately we have huge amounts of nostalgia for (the original) show”
