Defenders of the Universe Has a Nice Ring in First Netflix ‘Voltron’ Trailer
Netflix hasn’t been particularly shy with forming the Legendary Defender that makes up its new Korra-sized take on Voltron, delivering photos and an early teaser, but now the giant hero has finally arrived. See for yourself in the full Voltron: Legendary Defender trailer, as the classic robot fighter joins a new generation of pilot for a delightfully updated take on the material.
Ahead of its June 10 premiere (all episodes, though the first will run a full hour, against ten subsequent outings at 22 minutes), Netflix released the first full trailer for Voltron: Legendary Defender. In addition to a much clearer sense of the reboot’s action and humor, the new trailer also affords our first look at the updated big bad.
So reads the official synopsis:
Five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as Voltron: Legendary Defender.
And its cast::
- Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Lance
- Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream) as Pidge
- Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Shiro
- Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) as Hunk
- Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Keith
- Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) as Princess Allura
- Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) as Coran
The series is also executive produced by Joaquim Dos Santos of Legend of Korra and Avatar fame. While we wait for June 10, stay tuned for more from Voltron: Legendary Defender!
