News: Legend of Korra producers confirmed as showrunners for Netflix’s Voltron

The Netflix update of Voltron has had a couple of intriguing names added to its production team, with geek entertainment site Nerdist having revealed that Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos will be the showrunners for the “mecha guardian of the universe”. Montgomery and Dos Santos were producer and executive producer on Legend of Korra, the force of empowerment for queer women everywhere, in addition to Dos Santos’ work as director on Avatar: The Last Airbender with Montgomery as storyboard artist.

With talent like this in the mix the DreamWorks and Netflix team-up, based on the Toei localisation of Beast King GoLion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, is certainly piquing our interest now. The release of a new teaser visual has revealed the project’s full title as Voltron: Legendary Defender, and Nerdist’s Jessica Chobot will be moderating an official panel for the show at WonderCon on March 25th. Executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick, also of Legend of Korra, will be joining her to talk about the show.
