A new version of the classic cartoon is heading to Netflix in June.
Netflix has released the first teaser for its new animated series, 'Voltron: Legendary Defender.' Developed by DreamWorks Animation, the show will premiere through Netflix on June 10.
From days long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes Netflix Original Series 'Voltron: Legendary Defender.' DreamWorks Animation reimagines one of the most popular fan-favorite shows of all time in this all-new comedic action-packed show from executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) and co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra). In this all-new Voltron series coming to Netflix this year, five unsuspecting teenagers are transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war and 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.'
