While it’s not a barn-burner of a reveal, it certainly is a start!
Earlier today, Netflix released a teaser visual for their upcoming Voltron project. The title will hit the service under the name Voltron: Legendary Defender.
Voltron: Legendary Defender is a co-production between Netflix and Dreamworks. The project will reboot the classic anime adaptation, which originally hit the airwaves in 1984.
At the time of the announcement, Netflix Vice President of Original Series Cindy Holland noted that “DreamWorks Animation is synonymous with great storytelling that families around the world enjoy […] It’s with great pleasure that we expand on an already successful relationship with DreamWorks Animation to bring more premium kids and family television to Netflix members globally.”
Voltron was originally produced as a joint venture between World Events Productions and Toei Animation. The series ran on syndicated networks from September 10, 1984 through November 18, 1985. Voltron‘s first season adapts Beast King GoLion, which aired in Japan from 1981 through 1982. Voltron was directed by Katsuhito Taguchi, and features character designs by Kazuo Nakamura. Media Blasters holds the rights to both Voltron and Beast King GoLion in North America.
