Voltron Legendary Defender Details are Revealed

OMG my interlocks have been activated and my dynotherms have been connected! Just a short while ago at WonderCon in Los Angeles California, Voltron fans (sadly I was not one of them) got their first look at the art and a teaser trailer and major details of the upcoming Netflix reboot of Voltron: Legendary Defender. And boy oh boy did it not disappoint!!

Here is what we know so far:

Voltron: Legendary Defender is set to debut on Netflix on June 10, 2016, which is a major relief because I thought I was going to have to wait forever to see the awesomeness.

The cast is amazing:

Keith: Steven Yeun (Walking Dead)
Lance: Jeremy Shada (Team America: World Peace)
Pidge: Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow and The Last Witch Hunter)
Shiro:  Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: Animated Series / Arkham Origins Video Game)
Princess Allura: Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect /  Arkham City)
Corran: Rhys Darby (Flight Of The Concords / Modern Family)

All I have to say is wow, Steven Yeun alone makes the cast awesome. Like my fellow contributor here at graphic policy MR. H says, the Walking Dead should be renamed the Walking Glenn because he is so badass. As my suspicions thought, Sven was renamed Shiro, which is ok, after all it is a reboot. Most of what they show in the artwork is pretty close to the original series as far as how the Pilots look, which is awesome, it means they aren’t going to stray too far away from what we already know.

I am just amazed at how awesome this show already looks, I can’t wait until June 10th to see this show. Which really speaks volumes if I am already this excited for it as I was very cautious about how another Voltron show would turn out after the disappointments Voltron: The Third Dimension and Voltron Force were. Let me know how you guys feel. Please feel free to chime in.
