The DreamWorks and Netflix reimagining of the 1980s animated series Voltron has a full-length trailer now streaming. So, for a more detailed look at what Voltron: Legendary Defender show will have to offer, just watch the video below.
The animated series premieres on Netflix on June 10th, and the streaming service released the show’s first teaser trailer last month. With the Legend of Korra team of executive producers, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, running the show beside writer Tim Hedrick, Voltron: Legendary Defender is animated byKorra’s Studio Mir, bringing the core team back under their old banner. The DreamWorks show’s main characters, with the leading team pictured below as revealed by Nerdist, have been cast as follows:
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
Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) as Hunk
Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) as Princess Allura
Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) as Coran
Neil Kaplan (Transformers: Robots in Disguise) as King Zarkon
The character known as Shiro in this series returns from the first Voltron, in which he was named Sven. He, in turn, was adapted from the character of Takashi Shirogane in King of Beasts GoLion when this show was reinterpreted as Voltron. Shiro and his friends Keith, Lance, Hunk and Pidge set out to defend Arus from King Zarkon’s alien forces, and this series, unlike the original, is priding itself on giving all of its characters backstories and their own individual reasons for taking on the mission.
