The fun thing about Netflix bringing back Voltron is that most of us, no matter how much we claim to love the original, mid-’80s, animated series, probably don’t remember a lot about it other than, “OMG it was so cool when they turned into that giant robot!” So, watching the first trailer for Voltron: Legendary Defender should be the perfect blast of nostalgia for us kids at heart, because it’s basically Netflix and DreamWorks telling us: “Hey, remember the most awesome part of Voltron? Well, here it is all new and improved!” And they’re right, because I’ve watched it 100 times and it’s just goosebumps on top of goosebumps.
Now, in the official trailer for Voltron: Legendary Defender, we get a taste of the new storyline, which is especially cool for those of us who definitely don’t remember anything about the original cartoon without a Google search. Five new heroes have stumbled upon the robotic cat limbs of the “greatest weapon” ever invented, and we’ll get to watch with wide eyes and fresh expectations as they take on the bad guys who want to dominate the universe. And, of course, we can all geek the f*ck out together when Voltron assembles for the first time, because come on… look at this:
Hell yes. Voltron: Legendary Defender assembles on June 10.
