Netflix’ popular revival of Voltron continues in the first month of 2017.
If you’ve seen Voltron on Netflix, then you already know what all the hubbub is about. Neatly put though, Voltron is a nearly perfect re-envisioning of the classic cartoon from the ’80s. The animation is spot-on, in a cool retro way, and looks great.
Not that Voltron stops there, since plenty of what made the the classic property so great has made it into the new show. And even the new ideas that’ve been added pretty much all fall right in line with what you’d expect.
I think what I’m saying is that it’s good. And since season one ended on a cliffhanger, fans have been waiting with baited breath to see what’s next. Well, that moment is just a scant few months away.
Season two is set to hit the streaming service all at once this coming January the 20th. It’s already made an impression though. An entire episode from season two was screened at NYCC last week, in front of a gaggle of fans.
After that, actors Jeremy Shada (Lance) and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Pidge) took the stage. They were joined by executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and story editor Tim Hedrick. All of the above teased a little bit more of what fans could expect from the show down the line.
Of what was discussed, there were some highlights. Such as:
- Weird Al will be a guest voice
- Green Lion pilot Pidge might be a hoarder (!)
- Hunk and Lance will get aquatic on a watery world in a submerged episode called The Depths
Not much to go on is it? Ah well, at least its’s something to tide you over till the years turns.
