Mega thrusters are go! Voltron has long since been an amazingly popular animated franchise, ever since the transforming and merging Team Lion became a fixture of cartoons in the 1980s. Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons recently jumped on that lion-bandwagon, reviving the team once more for the animated series Voltron Force. Now, Atlas Entertainment and World Events Productions (WEP) have bigger ideas for the future, planning a Voltron: Defender of the Universe movie! The iconic figures, based on the original Japanese anime and manga Beast King GoLion and Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV, have only just begun their journey to the silver screen, with a planned hybrid mixture of live action and CG animation – likely not dissimilar from the recent Transformers blockbusters, like Dark of the Moon, that have so captured the imagination of audiences everywhere.
