This podcast is our COMPLETE coverage of Voltron at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2018. Marc shares everything that happened at SDCC with Greg, who is hearing it for the first time, including interviews with Bex Taylor-Klaus, Jeremy Shada, Rhys Darby, Josh Hamilton, Lauren Montgomery, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Kyle Anderson. Also, we cover the Voltron panel, signings, SDCC exclusives, and we are excited to announce the winner of the Voltron Season 6 Prize Pack, and introduce a new SDCC Voltron Prize Pack and how to enter to win it!
One of the first things we talk about is an announcement made for a Voltron book coming in 2019 by Andrew Farago, who had Original Voltron Director Franklin Cofod on a panel called Totally Awesome: The Greatest Cartoons of the 80's. His Voltron book will be called Voltron: The Ultimate Visual History, published by Insight Editions in 2019. Of course, we will have Andrew on the podcast when that book is released!
Of course, we know you all want to hear about the interviews we had with the Cast and Crew of Voltron Legendary Defender! So, in addition to hearing them on the podcast, you can also WATCH them on our YouTube Channel!

And... as an added special bonus, we have an interview with the Moderator of the Voltron Legendary Defender Panel at SDCC, the Associate Editor at Nerdist, and the Host of a brand new VLD Episode Commentary Podcast called FORM PODCAST - Kyle Anderson - https://youtu.be/3O5NG2EQ58E
We also wanted to mention that Voltron Legendary Defender's Legendary Voice Director Andrea Romano was brought out of retirement to do an episode commentary for Form Podcast, but Marc was also able to interview Andrea, because she was also brought back for the Batman: The Animates Series Panel at SDCC. We were so happy to talk to Andrea Romano again!!
Also, we covered the Voltron Legendary Defender Panel at SDCC and the signings of both the cast and crew at the autograph area AND Tim Hedrick and Mitch Iverson at the Lion Forge Booth for the Voltron Legendary Defender Comics, Vol 3, Issue 1 SDCC Exclusive Variant Cover!
There were also SDCC Voltron Exclusives for:
LEGO Ideas Voltron, which we covered in our last podcast, but can't help talking about AGAIN, because it's so awesome!!!! Don't forget, EVERYONE can get their own LEGO Ideas Voltron on August 1, 2018 at Shop.LEGO.com or at ANY LEGO Store in the world!

Here are some of our pictures from everything we mentioned here:
We were so excited about the announcements for Season 7 being 13 episodes, coming to Netflix on August 10, and that the remaining 13-episode drop will occur before the end of this year, so we are thinking December, but don't quote us! And it is certainly cool that we will have a complete 78-episode Voltron story on Netflix , we will be sad when it is all over, because it is such an amazing series. We want to thank the whole cast and crew of Voltron Legendary Defender at DreamWorks Animation, all the animators at Studio Mir, and all the people at Universal, DreamWorks, Team Click and Netflix who have allowed us to cover everything for Voltron. Thank you!
On our next podcast, we'll be reviewing episodes 2, 3 and 4 of Season 6 of Voltron Legendary Defender with K-Lionheart, who designed Dungeons and Voltron for us when she appeared on the podcast as our Voltron Fan Artist Spotlight.
The next podcast after that, we'll be reviewing episodes 5, 6 and 7 of Season 6 of Voltron Legendary Defender with Donya Abramo, writer for Hypable, and a podcast veteran herself. She recently wrote a post-SDCC article on Hypable that we all love. Please check it out here:
As Always, Thank You for Listening! Let's Voltron!!
