New Voltron Coming To Netflix In 2016

http://variety.com/2016/biz/news/dre...ix-1201672250/

Quote:
Beginning this year, Netflix will launch several new DWA-produced series, including a reimagining of the Voltron franchise, and “Trollhunters,” shepherded by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The studio said the latter series “will unleash a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.”

Sounds interesting though I really don't like the term "reimagining"

these american versions of anime have been pretty bad, I don't have much hope for this one.

I almost feel bad for World Event Productions, the guys are very nice but the only success they've ever had is dubbing GoLion into Voltron and then buying the rights for GoLion. All their other shows had lukewarm success in the 80s and all their revivals of Voltron have failed. They've also been trying to get a Voltron movie for over ten years now.

Let's hope they learned from their failures of Voltron:The Next Dimension and Voltron Force. This being a re-imagining is good since the other two projects were sequels and faield terribly. I have a soft spot for Voltron so I hope it's good but we'll see.

Voltron Force was really not all that awful. 3D is ugly as hell but they at least attempted to continue the story, I guess. I'm not really sure it was ever a story that needed continuing, but hey, they bought the whole damn thing so they are committed I suppose.

Hopefully it's good?

Wow, so this is coming out in June?
How did we not know about this? I don't understand why Netflix sometimes just announces shows two years in advance and sometimes 2 months. The new Voltron looks like the Voltron Force version but I guess that's ok since that design was pretty cool. Wish we had more information.

Last year was the 30th anniversary and they released this video which was cool:



Their youtube channel actually has all the Voltron shows uploaded but for some reason half of the episodes are private for whatever reason.

The animation looks super clean. I am pretty hype for this. Voltron is one of the only robot animes I ever liked.

Fingers crossed for a sick remake on his theme.

Not really into Voltron (Though I have watched some of the Go Lion anime), but this looks pretty cool.

I love Studio Mir's work.
Was never really into Voltron, but I'm going to give this one a try.
