PRESS RELEASE –
DreamWorks Animation Television and Netflix will present a jam-packed Voltron Legendary Defender panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, with series showrunners and voice talent debuting the premiere episode of the highly-anticipated third season of the critically-acclaimed Netflix original series.
Fans will be treated to a first look into the exciting third season of the pop culture phenomenon Voltron Legendary Defender. Join executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery, Bex Taylor-Klaus (voice of Pidge), and Tyler Labine (voice of Hunk) in 6BCF for a special screening and a sneak peek at what’s to come for Team Voltron. The panel will be moderated by Kyle Anderson, Associate Editor of Nerdist.
Following the panel, DreamWorks is calling all Voltron cosplayers to meet Joaquim, Lauren, Bex and Tyler at FANDOM Fest at 2:00 PM PST in the Petco Interactive Zone for a Voltron cosplay and fan meet up. Additional details to follow.
You can also beat the heat at the Petco Interactive Zone for a cool treat from the Voltron-themed food truck “Hunk’s Food Goo Replication Station” in Space M. Just like the Paladins of Voltron, fans can try every Altean’s favorite intergalactic snack: green food goo (or the earth-friendly version that tastes oddly similar to frozen yogurt). Served Thursday-Saturday from 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Sunday from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM for free while supplies last.
On Friday morning, Joaquim, Lauren, Bex and Tyler will be signing an SDCC-exclusive poster created by the Voltron crew from 10:30 AM – Noon in the Sails Pavilion at the Convention Center. Tickets will be made available in advance in the Autograph Area.
A full list of Voltron activities is included below.
