SDCC 2018: DreamWorks Debuts VOLTRON LEGENDARY DEFENDER Season 7 Trailer
If you were at the VOLTRON LEGENDARY DEFENDER panel today at SDCC, you lucked out. Not only did they debut the season seven trailer for the hit animated series, attendees got the chance to watch the first episode, titled “A Little Adventure.”
During the panel executive producers, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery told fans that the series will premiere on NETFLIX August 10. Season seven will have 13 all-new episodes.
For those that weren’t at the panel – here are some highlights for you:
- Season 7 Logline: Following Lotor’s defeat, the Paladins are finally able to set a course for Earth. After a long and perilous journey, they discover that their home planet is not how they left it.
- “A Little Adventure” follows Team Voltron as they encounter a small problem on the planet Faunus as they try to recharge their lions.
- DreamWorks and Nerdist announced the launch of an official Voltron commentary podcast called “Form Podcast!”, hosted by Nerdist associate editor Kyle Anderson and featuring showrunners, cast, and crew from the series. Each episode creates a “listen-while-you-watch” commentary track to play alongside each Netflix episode of Voltron Legendary Defender, providing all-new behind-the-scenes conversation about creating the series.
- The first episode featuring executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery is now available from Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id1411659171
- Jeremy Shada surprised fans half way through the panel and was met with a wild reception!
