“Ready to form Voltron. Activate interlock. Dynotherms – connected. Infracells – up. Megathrusters are go! All form Voltron! Let’s go Voltron Force!”

Friday, June 10 marks the return of Voltron on Netflix with DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender. Can you guys seriously believe we’re getting new Voltron? I can’t. So much so, that I’ve already written the word “Voltron” four times in one paragraph — a nerdy journalism no-no.

Lucky for all of us, IGN has released a juicy sizzle reel featuring all new footage from the series. Check it out below!

UGH! I can’t wait. The animation looks stellar, and it still retains the classic look of the iconic series while upgrading it with a modern flare. Who could ask for more?

Voltron Legendary Defender was developed for TV by Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender), with a voice cast that includes Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Keith, Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Lance, Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow) as Pidge, Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Shiro (formerly “Sven”), Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) as Hunk, Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) as Princess Allura, and Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) as Coran.
