The first image of the Netflix animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender has appeared on line, and fans are gonna flip…
The first footage will be screened today(Friday) at WonderCon in Los Angeles. Voltron: Legendary Defender is produced by DreamWorks Animation, the same group that is doing the original Netflix series based on the How to Train Your Dragon animated movies.
“We’re trying to keep as much of that classic feel to it as we can, because ultimately we have huge amounts of nostalgia for (the original) show,” said co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery in a interview with USA Today.
Legendary Defender centers on five Earth teenagers — Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro — who are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic battle and become the last line of defense for Arus and other planets against an evil alien force led by King Zarkon.
The first season of the online series will arrive on Netflix later this year.
