At the San Diego Comic-Con, crowds of Voltron fans finally got to hear what they have to look forward to in the upcoming season of Voltron: Legendary Defender on Netflix. The panel started with the announcement the team will be facing off with a new threat in Prince Lotor who will be played by AJ Locasio (Dawn of The Croods). The crowd also got a free signed poster and the new book from Simon & Schuster, “The Rise of Voltron.”
Details about the third season make it sound as if peace isn’t going to come easy for the Paladins of Voltron. With Shiro’s mysterious disappearance, the team is without a pilot for the Black Lion, which means they have lost the ability to form Voltron. With Prince Lotor hot on their heals and seeking revenge for his father Zarkon, Pidge, Hunk, Lance, and Keith will have to pull out all the stop and use everything at their disposal if they have any chance of surviving. Who will be able to pilot the Black Lion? If you are a fan of the original series than you have a pretty good idea of who is perfect for the role.
The third season is set to debut on August 4th. Unfortunately, it will only have seven episodes in it. Luckily, season 4 will not be far behind. It will arrive in October with six additional episodes. It was expressed at the panel this is intended so fans won’t have to wait as long for new episodes to come out. The teaser trailer for season 3 can be found below:
