With the announcement that Netflix will be releasing a new "re-imagined" Voltron animated series in 2016, made by DreamWorks Animation, we gather together some Voltron superfans to talk about fan reaction to the announcement and try to figure out what would make the best show that would last and appeal to the most people around the world.
Marc brings in Talley LaFlamme, Tara Scully, and Greg Tyler to have a roundtable discussion about how everyone reacted to the announcement of a new Voltron show. We talk about EVERYTHING. What are the best parts of Voltron that should be present in any Voltron show? What are we looking forward to the most that comes with a new show, like merchandise, toys, apps and video games? What will DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have to do to make this show last?
Here is the announcement that was sent in email for subscribers to Voltron.com:
Today (Jan 5, 2016) our friends at DreamWorks Animation announced an all-new Voltron series coming to Netflix in 2016. This will be the fourth installment of the Lion Force Voltron saga, following Voltron: Defender of the Universe (1984), Voltron: the Third Dimension (1998) and Voltron Force (2011).
We want to thank you, our core fans, for keeping Voltron alive and slaying robeasts for over 30 years, and hope you will join us for the return of the Defender of the Universe. We promise you will not be disappointed!**
We are getting excited for this show! This year will be a fantastic year for Voltron fans! Stay tuned to Let's Voltron Podcast for more Voltron fun!
