Up next, a Voltron movie

Up next, a Voltron movie

When I was still busy snacking on Chocolait and Chocolate Pretzels (and that was a long time ago), there was a legend – the legend of Voltron. Who’d forget them lion robots, right? Voltron: Defender of the Universe would definitely be a childhood influence that helped shaped my demented outlook in life. Nice.

Going by the same trend as Transformers, is a movie about five people piloting a quintent of lion shaped robots. IGN reports that if them cars and trucks were worth a movie, why not them space explorers and their huge lions?

Producer Mark Gordon will be bringing the project to life and chances are scriptwriter Justin Marks’ story will be used. But the premise sounds a bit blah. It’s “a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico. The film follows five survivors of an alien attack who must band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth’s invaders. ”

New York and Mexico? What the? Whatever happened to space exploration and space witches? And would that mean no Princess losing her bikini top while swimming? What a travesty of geek justice if that would be the case! For hot-blooded male geeks, nothing beats big robots and nudity.

Nostalgia trip? Watch this:
