Netflix is looking to add even more greatness to its already fabulous genre line up by providing us with some robotic drama via their planned reboot of ‘Voltron’.
In its original mid-1980’s incarnation, the animated adventure series followed a team of astronauts who pilot the titular giant super-robot. Later offshoots included ‘Voltron: The Third Dimension’ (in 1988) and NickToons’ ‘Voltron Force’ (in 2011).
The deal to produce this reboot is part of an overall collaborations between Netflix and Dreamworks.
Also in the animated pipeline is ‘Trollhunters’, from Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Strain) and set in a fantastical world where two best friends make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.
