Voltron: Legendary Defender is finally coming to Netflix this week, and now we have the first full clip from the reboot of the beloved 80's sci-fi cartoon:

The reboot series, a collaboration between Netflix and Dreamworks, follows teen team members Keith (voiced by The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun), Lance (Jeremy Shada), Hunk (Tyler Labine), Pidge (Arrow's Bex Taylor-Klaus) and Shiro (Josh Keaton) as they are thrown in the middle of an intergalactic conflict and are tasked with saving the world with robotic lions that assemble into Voltron. As we see in the clip, it's not always smooth sailing, and executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos assures fans that there will be just as much character and relationship work as there will be fun robot action:

"The big action stuff, kids will watch that and think it's cool, and we're hoping they can sink their teeth into each one of those individual pilots," he told USA Today. "Everybody can find their favorite character."
