Netflix Announces New Voltron Series, Trollhunters

Netflix Partners With Dreamworks for New Voltron and TrollhuntersNetflix already proved that 2016 is going to be a big year for them with 31 Netflix original series in 2016. Today, we now know what two of the series will be: Voltron and Trollhunters.

Expanding their partnership with DreamWorks Animation, Netflix will launch several new series including a reboot of the classic cartoon Voltron. For anyone who somehow missed out on a real childhood, Voltron was a cartoon from the 80’s that centered around a team of astronauts. If you could not guess it already, their individual vehicles would combine into a giant robot known as Voltron.

If that wasn’t enough good news, Guillermo del Torro will be collaborating with DreamWorks and Netflix in the new series Trollhunters. This series will tell the story of two best friends who discover a fantastical world below their hometown.

Both companies have seen great success already with children’s shows such as The Adventures of Puss in Boots and Dragons: Race to the Edge.

“This agreement adds to the incredible foundation we’ve built together with Netflix over a number of years across both film and television,” said Ann Daly, President of DreamWorks Animation.  “We are proud to work closely with Netflix to continue delivering high-quality programming to audiences around the world.
