DreamWorks Animation's reboot of your favorite after-school cartoon is coming to Netflix. The series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, arrives on the streaming service in June, with an hour-long premiere episode joined by ten additional 22-minute installments. Executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery say their goal was to remake the Voltron show that fans remember, not the actual series that ran from 1984 to 1985. In other words, the original, remade for American audiences by cobbling sequences from the adult-oriented Japanese animated series Beast King GoLion, wasn't exactly quality television programming. Voltron: Legendary Defender arrives on Netflix on June 10.
