From days of long ago… September 10, 1984, to be precise. That was when Space Explorers Captured (Golion name: Escape from Slave Castle), the very first Voltron: Defender of the Universe episode, aired on US Television.

Now, we are approaching the 30th Anniversary of that premiere. In 2014, World Events Productions (WEP) plans to celebrate this momentous occasion by releasing a slew of wonderful new items for fans.

Voltron 30th Anniversary Preview Panel Interviews at NYCC

As we approach 2014, excitement is building to see what World Events Productions will do to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Voltron was introduced to US TV viewers on September 10, 1984, and the world has never been the same since. The phrase, “Form like Voltron” has been used in the media vernacular to signify a group of people coming together with one common goal that they share. Whether it’s an athletic team, a corporation, event organizers, or people working on a project, Voltron defines unity of purpose in this day and age.

The “Voltron Force” of fans were overflowing the room at New York Comic Con when the Voltron 30th Anniversary Preview Panel kicked off on October 13, 2013. The first 29 fans received a special fan-made print to celebrate the 29th Anniversary of Voltron.

Ladies first, we always say. Our first interview is with Andrea Romano, who is the most hard-working and most beloved casting and voice director in the animation business, period. Everyone wants to work with Andrea because she is simply the best (cue Tina Turner). In this interview, Andrea tells us how she chose Diedrich Bader to be Batman. And we get to find out how Andrea developed into the most gifted voice director we have ever seen.
