The 1980s cartoon Voltron is returning with Netflix’s animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender. Produced by DreamWorks Animation, the first 13 22-minute episodes are due out later in the year.

Legendary Defender centers on five Earth teenagers — Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro — who are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic battle and become the last line of defense for Arus and other planets against an evil alien force led by King Zarkon.

“We’re trying to keep as much of that classic feel to it as we can, because ultimately we have huge amounts of nostalgia for (the original) show,” says co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery.

The show works for executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos because it marries “a true sense of epic adventure” with “the campy nature of five lions that become a giant robot.”

The original Voltron series, based on the Japanese anime properties Beast King GoLion and Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV, aired in the US from 1984 to 1985.
