DreamWorks Animation is helping the universe’s greatest protector to rise again with the all-new series ‘Voltron Legendary Defender’ set to premier June 10th exclusively on Netflix. The reboot of the much-loved franchise will be celebrated in an hour-long premier episode, “The Rise of Voltron”, and an additional ten episodes to complete the season.
While the series maintains the core of the classic series, Executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos and Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) have re-engineered core elements of the original show using all of the twenty-first-century technology and storytelling innovation at their disposal. Combining both old and new animation techniques, creative reiterations of characters and designs, and original plot expansions, DreamWorks ‘Voltron Legendary Defender’ honors the show’s venerated history while enhancing its stronger elements with a modern flair.
Voltron will join a range of hit DreamWorks series produced for Netflix including the multi-Emmy Award-winning series ‘All Hail King Julien’, ‘The Adventures of Puss in Boots’, and ‘Dragons: Race to the Edge’.
