In the wake of the recent announcement of a new Thundercats cartoon, another 80s icon has decided it is time for a revival.
World Event Prods and Classic Media have announced plans to re-launch Voltron through a new animated series set to air on Nicktoons.
Starting next year, Nicktoons will air 26 half-hour episodes of “Voltron Force,” about five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe.
Series will remain faithful to the old show, while introducing new recruits to fight alongside the original characters.
New episodes will be timed to the 25th anniverseries. It’s the first “Voltron” TV project in 10 years, although an iPhone game came out in December.
