Voltron Returns to Defend the Universe in First Official Netflix Trailer
< >
The 80's classic Voltron is finally coming back to our screens (at least our computer screens) in the form of an upcoming Netflix reboot called Voltron: Legendary Defender. The first full trailer is out, and it makes us even more excited for the return of the flying robot lions:

This trailer looks great, and not just because the voice cast includes The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun, The Killing and Arrow's Bex Taylor-Klaus, and Flight of the Conchords' Rhys Darby. As we found out at the huge unveiling at Voltron's Wonder Con panel (which received a rapturous reception from fans), legendary baddie Zarkon is returning, as well as ancient Voltron protectors Allura and Coran, but will expand the universe so that the team will visit a huge number of planets rather than just one. 

Here's the official synopsis for the series:

Opening quote
Voltron: Legendary Defender centers on five Earth teenagers - Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro - who are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic battle and become the last line of defense for Arus and other planets against an evil alien force led by King Zarkon.
Closing quote

Voltron: Legendary Defender, which is a joint effort from Dreamworks Animation and World Events Productions, will premiere on Netflix on June 10.
