Alright Voltron fans! I have some news for you!! Live from WonderCon 2016, the VOLTRON panel unveiled never-before-seen artwork, a teaser trailer, and the cast of DreamWorks Animation’s all-new Netflix Original Series VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER, which will debut June 10, 2016. The panel included executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra), and writer Tim Hedrick (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender).
WonderCon attendees enjoyed sneak peek of the epic journey in which five friends embark upon as they are thrust into a sprawling intergalactic war. It is through the power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior VOLTRON!
The newly unveiled cast includes Tyler Labine, Josh Keaton, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Kimberly Brooks, Rhys Darby and Steven Yeun (who offered a surprise video greeting at the conference).
Dos Santos shared “As children of the 80’s who grew up with Voltron what was there not to love? You had 5 awesome lions, piloted by 5 awesome heroes who combined to form a giant, sword wielding Titan! It unapologetically married Sci-fi and Fantasy in one incredibly over the top, bombastic package. Fans of the new series [Voltron: Legendary defender] can look for us to keep all those elements but also expect a much more fleshed out universe with a rich backstory and characters who will evolve over the course of the series.”
