Voltron Force Trailer, Series Premiere On June 16


Nickelodeon will air the revamped Voltron series in just a few weeks according to this trailer. And it will be animated by a couple of 15 year olds on New Grounds according to this trailer.

This does not bode well for Nick Toons next Teenage Mutant Ninja Tutle series. But maybe I’m wrong.

Leave a comment and confirm or deny this gut reaction.

Thanks to Beck for the link.

Images of Voltron Force Lions

The Geek News blog over at MTV posted some of the first images of the lions from the new Voltron Force cartoon coming to NickToons later this year. No Yellow Lion to be seen, unfortunately, but all the rest are here. We’ve seen some of these images before in various forms of completeness as teasers on the VoltronOfficial twitter feed. Its nice to see them completed and colored though. Things are definitely shaping up for the series so far.

THQ secures video game license for Voltron

Variety brings us news that THQ has acquired the rights to Voltron for video games. The first game will launch around the same time as the new animated show Voltron Force on NickToons in the Fall of this year. The first entry in the video game series will follow the adventures of the original show from the 80’s Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Mattel will also be launching a brand new toy line based on the new series expected around the same time. I would not be surprised if there was a sub-line dedicated to the original line much like every other 80’s cartoon revival going strong today.

It should be noted that THQ recently also reached an agreement with Mattel itself, to create games based on its own in-house properties including Barbie and Masters of the Universe.

If we had our pick of lions, I’d probably pick to be the Yellow lion to take on Robeasts prior to ganging up and forming Voltron. How about you? Let us know in the comments!

First Look at a New Voltron Movie?

Back a long while ago, I had posted about a live-action Voltron movie supposedly in the works, though it’s been many years since mention has been made of the issue since.

Looks like there’s still hope, though. JoBlow.com has some exclusive photos of the new movie up on their site.

It appears that Atlas Entertainment has taken the reins on the project and is gearing up a pretty impressive pitch. Apparently, they’ve hired the currently hot screenwriting
tag-team of Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. The names may not sound familiar to you, but they might soon. The duo wrote the upcoming CONAN flick, and are currently scribing the DR. STRANGE and UNCHARTED: DRAKE’S FORTUNE adaptations

Color this Voltron fan excited.

Voltron Force toy license and show announced

Voltron Pilots Hunk, Allura, Keith, Pidge and Lance

Hot on the heels of the Thundercats comeback announcements from last week, this week brings us news that Voltron, too, is on its way back to fascinate and entertain children. Variety is reporting that Mattel has been awarded the toy license for Voltron, while Nicktoons will be airing 26 episodes of ‘Voltron Force’, a brand new animated series based on the original series from the 80’s. It will follow the five pilots (I have to assume Keith, Pidge, Hunk, Lance, and Allura) of the robotic lions that combine to form a powerful robot. In addition, this series will also introduce new recruits that will aid the pilots in their struggles to defend the galaxy. The last attempt to revive the Voltron franchise was about 10 years ago with a series that was not nearly as faithful to the series origins as most fans wanted. No word on when the toys will be available.
