Voltron Returning to TV With New Netflix Series
We all remember Voltron, one of the 1980s absolute best animated series (even if it was just a repackaged and overdubbed version of the Japanese anime, Beast King GoLion). And after years of starts and stops on a franchise resurrection, fans of giant mechanical space lions finally have reason to celebrate: Voltron is coming to Netflix in a brand new series.

The new animated series is part of the streaming service's deal with Dreamworks Animation, who acquired the rights to Voltron back in 2013. The details about the new incarnation are few and far between, but it's expected to debut sometime later this year. Also, and this is purely speculation on our part, but given how millennials who grew up watching Voltron are likely the target audience for its resurrection, don't be too surprised if the new series brings back a lot of the old characters like Pidge, Hunk, and Princess Allura; along with the evil King Zarkon and Prince Lotor. 

This is very exciting news and we can't wait for the new series, so in the meantime, here's are the nostalgia-filled credits from the original, complete with that John Williams-inspired theme song.
