So the new Voltron Force
cartoon premieres on NickToons on June 16th. Here's the synopsis:
Several years after the final battle between the Voltron Force and
Prince Lotor, a new evil threatens the galaxy, and the universe is once
again in need of its true defender...
The original Voltron Force pilots, Keith, Allura, Lance, Hunk and Pidge,
are joined by three new cadets. With the once-in-a-millennium
opportunity to train alongside their heroes, these junior pilots will
help unlock incredible new powers, discover secret origins, and fight to
earn their role in the legendary Voltron Force!
I worry about the seven year jump, because it implies a continuity that will likely bewilder its intended audience of young kids, and I really worry about the "three new cadets" because adding kids to anything is a horrible idea. I also worry about the new theme song by SwizzBeats, "Let's Voltron," because it makes no sense and is awful and makes me kind of want to throw up (enjoy it here!
). Just sayin', or a song titled "Let's Voltron," it does not make me want to Voltron.
