Just finished the entire series for a second time!  Watched it with the kids who are so starved for episodes that they've started watching the original series that I have on dvd from episode one!  I don't know how much you can discuss upcoming stuff, but I have questions regarding: Lotor, The vehicle force, the gladiator force, and Romelle.

Watched the whole thing in two days; great job!!  I'm a little puzzled by the rearrangement of who flies which lion, but I'm getting used to it.  And I'm weirdly pleased by the fact the space mice are still there!  The story was really good, the animation was great, the characters were fleshed out well, the Castle of Lions looks really cool, I could go on.  Also, nice way to use the original Japanese name for Arus and still have a planet Arus!  I really hope there'll be a second season, and that Lotor will be introduced in it.

Shiro kind of reminds me of Guts from Berserk. He's got a weaponized prosthetic arm, his hair turned partially white from stress, and he's the definitive leader of his group post-amputation.

Update. Watched it. The animation was great, the story was great. You guys knocked it right out of the park. That was the Voltron I have been waiting for since I was a kid. The original still has a special place in my heart, but the story was cobbled together in it, and it pandered a little bit. You version was smart, kept the really cool elements, and updated the look, creating an overall well polished product. Kudos to you and your team.

Lauren you guys did an amazing job.
I sat through and marathon the whole project.
I hope a second season will come out of this.
The voice actors was fantastic.
The animation Breath taking.

 

I actually never watched the original but the changes you made that I do know of I approve of them because they add more complexity to the narrative and its characters. I would like to see you and your team refurbish other projects too like Mighty Max, Inhumanoids or Bravestarr.

 

Admittedly I am envious to not be able to bring such projects to life alongside such talented people.

Also assuming you are reading this thank you for the animated wonder woman film.

It was simply stunning and I for one would like more non-batman related content.

 

Thank you for the gift of entertainment.

Life is to sort viewing garbage so it’s great to have quality content out to be enjoyed.

I look forward to picking up Voltron on DVD.

Some of the changes were ok, not going to reveal anything to spoil it, but this long time fan enjoyed this new series. My only complaint is only 11 episodes per season? Is that a Netflix thing right there?

The first episode is actually the first 3 episodes. So if we were to split them all up it would be 13 episodes in the first season. But dreamworks wanted to package the first 3 as one extra long pilot movie. And we supported that decision. We think it plays better that way.

As painful as it is to watch because of the ear bleeding voice dubbing of the time nothing can truly replace the original. Never got a chance to see Voltron 3D, and I thought Voltron Force was good but not great, so I think regardless of what changes were done we should give this new series a try and a chance to grow.

One thing I do hope they change for season 2 if we GET a season 2, is the formation music. It just isn't the same with out the original formation music. Was not impressed with the bland formation music in Voltron force until the episode "Wade forms the Head" episode when they brought back the original horns version.

A lot of people say that with most 80's cartoons like He-Man, She-Ra, Transformers, The Real Ghostbusters and so on, that those shows were good but not that great. If you are someone who grew up watching those shows, of course you would have a deep nostalgia and affection for those. People who don't tend to look at them for what they are and not thru rose tinted glasses.

I did watched those shows growing up and while i do have an affection and nostalgia for them, i can see where some may not like them. The very corny and basic good vs evil storyline, generic and kiddified characterizations. (No blood, no gore, no realism. I'm looking at you, G.I. Joe!) I tend to look at these shows as products of their time and see the lack of animation technology and the limitations so yes i do prefer the originals in most everything.

Oh, hell yeah! I remember the original back in the 80's when I was a kid. They tried to do some reboots but they never really planned out. This one however I got a real good feeling about... mostly because it's being done by the same animators that did the last airbender, korra, and the boondocks but hey!!
