We haven’t heard much lately about the Voltron movie in development, although the last time we wrote about it we were introduced to our new favorite producer name: Dick Suckle. We also said back then that we’d totally watch it if they cast the girl to the right as Voltron. Or just use four real cats taped to a fifth cat.

The second, Voltron: The End by Alex Albrecht, is a serious take on the subject, with Timothy Omundsen (Jericho, Psych) playing Lance, the pilot of the Red Lion.
