Voltron: Legendary Defender
Season 1 Episode 1: “The Rise of Voltron”
Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Lauren Montgomery, Kihyun Ryu, Eugene Lee, Steve In Chang Ahn
Written by Tim Hendrick, Joshua Hamilton, May Chan
Starring Tyler Labine, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Josh Keaton, Steven Yeun, Rhys Darby, Keith Ferguson, Kimberly Brooks
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, June 10th, 2016

When I was a kid there was no greater 2-hour block of TV than 3:00 – 5:00 after school on FOX. It was 4 straight kickass cartoons, all of which launched me into action figure glory. The shows were She-Ra, He-Man, Thundercats, and Voltron. As for Voltron, memories of my Dad dashing around Brooklyn to various Toys R-Us locations in an effort get me all five lion toys that together would combine to form Voltron. In my house phrases like “I’ll form the head”, and “Form blazing sword” were common speak. Nearly 30 years later, Netflix has brought the series into its growing array of original programing with an 11-episode opening season that premiered on Netflix just this week. The show features the voice talents of Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil), Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time), Bex Taylor-Klaus (MTV’s Scream), Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).

Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have announced an expansion of their already established multi-year deal. The deal makes the streaming service the home for a lineup of new original family friendly series everywhere except China, and also includes the streaming rights to DreamWorks Animation’s films as well.

But what’s perhaps most exciting is two of the projects confirmed in this new deal. One is Trollhunters from Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak director Guillermo del Toro. The other is a re-imagining of Voltron.

Comic Review: Voltron #8

Voltron #8Voltron #8
Written by Brandon Thomas
Art by N. Steven Harris
Colors by Marcello Pinto
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Sean Chen
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 3, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Voltron #8 has a lot going on. While there’s tons of action, drama, and giant robots, there may be a little TOO much going on for the comic’s own good.

You can tell Brandon Thomas loves Voltron. And I mean LOVES Voltron. In some cases, that’s a very good thing. In some cases, writers are so in love with the property or franchise that they’re writing that they turn a blind eye to the basics of comic writing, and I think that may be the case here. I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve missed the past couple of issues, but I really liked the way this series started out. Upon reading this issue, I’m not finding the same fun series that’s full of mysteries that I remember. It’s frustrating to not understand characters that you’ve known and loved since your childhood, but here, I’m finding that’s the case. Prince Lotor is a bad guy who’s really a good guy pretending to be a good guy who’s hanging around with the evil witch Hagar who’s trying to sway him back to being a bad guy. I think. Heck, you got me at this point. Hopefully, when the current story arc plays out, Thomas will get this book back to the basics, otherwise, I’m afraid it might start to lose even the hardest of hardcore Voltron fans.

Voltron 3Voltron #3
Written by Brandon Thomas
Illustrated by Ariel Padilla
Colors by Marcelo Pinto
Letters by Marshall Dillion
Covers by Sean Chen, Alex Ross
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Here’s what Dynamite Entertainment would have you believe Voltron #3 is about: “The Man From Arus has come to Earth with an urgent message—Drule is coming and our planet lacks any credible defense. To turn the tide, an embattled scientist must accept the impossible and place the fate of humanity in the hands of something that doesn’t exist. And little does he know that his fateful actions have brought the Voltron Force to their current situation almost a hundred years later…staring down a battalion of shock troops and Robeasts that have come to make sure Voltron doesn’t get rescued and the day doesn’t get saved. Generation Voltron continues…”

Release Date: December 7th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

Every 5 to 7 years World Events Productions reboots Voltron for a new generation. And every 5 to 7 years I get really excited and then I get extremely let down. Well, not this time! Voltron #1 is the fresh take on the property that fans have been waiting for!

Writer Brandon Thomas writes a story that both stays true to the original concept, spirit, and execution of the classic Voltron story, yet throws in enough twists and turns to keep it fresh and very accessible to new readers.

Voltron: The End

Totally Rad Show, Diggnation, and former Screen Savers host Alex Albrecht is a man of many talents, director of films among them.

Today, he dropped a short film on YouTube titled Voltron: The End. The short features an older Lance (played by Timothy Omundson, who plays Detective Lassiter on the USA series Psych), pilot of the Red Lion, recovering from an accident. It is short, but sweet and a total treat for Voltron fans.
