Voltron is back!
voltron-first-look.jpg?resize=540%2C405


Netflix has brought back Voltron, rebooting the series with an 11 (the first episode is 68 minutes) episode season from Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim De Santos of Legend of Korra.

The voice cast is pretty great!

Jeremy Shada as Lance
Steven Yeun as Keith
Josh Keaton as Shiro
Tyler Labine as Hunk
Taylor Bex-Klaus as Pidge

It's actually really good and extremely well animated and written. I have no nostalgia for Voltron at all and I am loving it to death. Watch it, y'all!

    Shiro very begrudgingly says this as they stack the lions on top of each other in a, failed, attempt try to figure out how to form Voltron

    So I'm on episode 8 of this and I'm still really enjoying it

    The thing I've been most surprised by, besides the general level of quality it has, is how much of a serialized narrative it has. It isn't stand-alone episodic at all, every episode drives the plot forward and ties into the ongoing story, to the point that they often pick up immediately after the end of the last one, sometimes dealing with a new threat that showed up at the end of the previous episode.

    It's some good shit

    Do they ever use the actual theme music from the original series?

    We watched the three episode long opening movie to the series and not hearing it really detracted from the big form volt rob moment in its last moments.

    They do not, sadly. I mean, it makes sense - that music doesn't seem to me like it would really fit with the overall tone/style of the new show - but they don't even really allude to it, which I agree is a little disappointing.

    Show is still a lot of fun, though.

    I think the music is probably this show's lowest point, to be honest. Which is a bummer when all the rest of the sound design is A++. There are some dope ass laser noises in Voltron: Legendary Defender

    Each of the team's weapons are super cool and very fitting for their character
    I was disappointed when Pidge just got a little dagger thing but then it was revealed to also be a sick grappling hook and yeah that makes a lot more sense

    Allura took over as pilot of the Blue Lion pretty early on in the original, when Sven (aka original Shiro) got taken out.

    Also re: Allura, full spoilers
    While she never pilots a lion, it kind of takes away some of the sting when she shoulder checks a robot to death straight through a steel bulkhead

    like it just ain't even a thing, too. Allura is She-Hulk, fuck a bunch of lions.

    I have been kinding watching this in the background and I am kinda ambivalent toward it.

    But since the first episode, I have been betting dollars to donuts that
    Pidge is a girl.
    I guess I'll spoiler that?

    I may have watched that scene more than once. That was amazing.

    I also love Shiro's reaction to it. His expression is just "...what the fuck?!"
