Voltron Movie Has Life!

Oh the 80’s cartoon shows that I loved so much. Transformers, G.I. Joe, Thundercats… and oh yes… Voltron!

There has been talk of a Voltron movie for YEARS. Just last year it looked like Fox had everything ready to go and even had a director lined up to do it. That obviously came to nothing at all. Now it appears Voltron may indeed have life again!

The guys over at Worst Previews give us this:

Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven (The Dark Knight), Richard Suckle (The International) and Steve Alexander have acquired the rights to make a live-action feature based on “Voltron,” pushing the project forward after several years in development with the Mark Gordon Company.

So it looks like Fox is out of the picture.

Voltron was a cartoon about 5 giant robotic lions that were each controlled by a human pilot. These lions would defend their home world from invasions. Sometimes, when the opposition was too much for the 5 lions, they were merge together and form one gigantic humaniod formed robot called Voltron. Butt kicking would ensue.

I’m not going to hold my breath that a Voltron movie will actually get made. I’m not sure the original show had a large enough following. But still… if it did get done… man I’d be happy to see those 5 lions kicking some ass and then forming voltron to kick even MORE ass… oh the ass kicking would be in plentiful supply my friends!

Do you have any desire to see a Voltron movie? Were you a fan as a kid or are you indifferent to it?
