1980s giant robot action hero Voltron is returning thanks to DreamWorks Animation and Netflix in the upcoming Voltron: Legendary Defender. And thanks to The Nerdist, we now know the key production personnel reviving the Defender of the Universe for a new generation.
DC Animated Universe veterans Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos will be the showrunners. Besides working on shows like Justice League and some of the earlier DCAU direct-to-video features, both Montgomery and Dos Santos also worked in various capacities on Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Avatar and Korra writer Tim Hedrick will also be involved.
The series will reveal more of its secrets at a panel during Wondercon in a few weeks. With the talent already revealed, we’ll certainly be there to discover who else joined to the production to form Voltron once more.
