Fans of 80’s cartoons can rejoice! For those old enough to remember the famous mecha team up cartoon Voltron, you are in for a treat. Netflix, the home of some great franchise reboots/continuations for fans of nostalgia, is partnering with DreamWorks Animation, World Events Productions, and Studio Mir to produce new episodes of the franchise now titled Voltron: Legendary Defender.

Netflix just dropped the official trailer for the animated show today:
