If you were ever a ‘Voltron’ fan when you were a kid, you have something amazing to look forward to this summer. As many are already aware, Netflix and Dreamworks are remaking the classic series ‘Voltron,’ starting with an 11 episode season 1 that will be released on Netflix on June 10. Below, you can check out a sizzle reel of the action shots of the show, which promise a lot of fun, some crazy robots and space battles, and of course, the moment when all of the robots come together to form the mighty Voltron. There’s even more to be excited about as the show is being produced by some of the creative forces behind ‘Avatar: The Las Airbender’ and ‘The Legend of Korra,’ producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, which for me at least, means that the show has some serious talent behind it, and strong hands to keep the comedy, action, and drama on point.
