Voltron is back in a brand new series only on Netflix! A joint project between Dreamworks and Netflix, Voltron: Legendary Defender is a new reboot of the classic show. Headed by Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra alumni are co-executive producers Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos. Rounding up the crew is head writer Tim Hendrick while the animation is provided by Studio Mir!
10,000 years ago, the dreaded Emperor Zarkon fought King Alfor of Altea to steal his ultimate creation: Voltron. Created to defend the universe, Voltron is formed when five robot lions combine. Refusing to hand the Lions over to Zarkon, King Alfor separated them across the far corners of the universe.
10,000 years later, the Lions fall into the hands of five new pilots: Shiro, Keith, Lance, Pidge, and Hunk. Along with Princess Allura and her royal advisor, Coran, they must stop Emperor Zarkon and save the universe.
Meet the Main Characters of Voltron: Legendary Defender.
Shiro: Guardian Spirit of Sky (voiced by Josh Keaton): The pilot of the Black Lion and the defacto leader of the Voltron team, Shiro is a dedicated leader and mentor to the rest of the crew. He has a cybernetic arm that can be used as a weapon. Thoughtful and calm, Shiro is more than ready to lead.
Keith: Guardian Spirit of Fire (voiced by Steven Yeun): The pilot of the Red Lion, Keith is hot-tempered and rash. A lone wolf at heart, he'd rather follow by his own rule even though he often looks up to Shiro. Maybe someday he'll grow from his impulsive nature. Until then, he lends his talents as the team's best pilot.
Lance: Guardian Spirit of Water (voiced by Jeremy Shada): The pilot of the Blue Lion, Lance is a goofy, fun-loving guy. He's your go-to source for terrible jokes and even worse pick-up lines. He may be too cocky for his own good (and too distracted by beautiful women), but sometimes confidence can lead to victory!
Pidge: Guardian Spirit of Forest (voiced by Bex Taylor-Klaus): The pilot of the Green Lion, Pidge is the smart guy of the team. He longs to find out what happened to his missing family. Pidge is a mastery of tech and often finds better comfort through it than other humans.
Hunk: Guardian Spirit of Land (Voiced by Tyler Labine): The pilot of the Yellow Lion, Hunk has a heart of gold and a stomach of iron. When he isn't stuffing his face, he helps out the team with his gifted mechanical skills.
Princess Allura (Voiced by Kimberly Brooks): The last surviving ruler of the Planet Altea, Princess Allura has been in cryogenic sleep for 10,000 years in Arus. She's determined to stop the evil Zarkon and save the universe. Her father, King Alfor, created Voltron, leaving her with a massive burden to bare. Will the new paladins of Voltron succeed or fail under her watch?
Coran (voiced by Rhys Darby): The royal advisor to Allura, Coran is a pompous, but eccentric man. Coran has been entrusted to protect and teach Princess Allura. Thankfully, he has plenty of knowledge to spare.
Voltron: The legendary defender of the universe, Voltron is the brainchild of Allura's father, King Alfor. It is comprised of five robot lions that when combined, forms the powerful mecha. The Galra Empire may not give up, but Voltron remains a symbol of hope to the entire universe!
Emperor Zarkon: (voiced by Neil Kaplan): Emperor Zarkon is the ruthless leader of the Galra Empire. He'll stop at nothing to obtain Voltron and rule the universe!
Commander Sendak: (voiced by Jake Eberle) Emperor Zarkon's first-in-command, Commander Sendak is loyal to the empire and will do anything to gain Voltron and the emperor's respect. He lost his arm in the front lines, but has since replaced it with a robotic appendage armed for battle.
Haggar (voiced by Cree Summer): A powerful witch who works for Emperor Zarkon, Haggar and her druids creates the numerous robeasts that battles Voltron on a daily basis.
