Episode Summary

Marc and Greg also review, in it's entirety, the first 3 episodes of the show, which has been made into an uninterrupted mini-movie called “The Rise of Voltron”. WARNING: Spoilers! Do not listen to this review if you want to see the show fresh on Netflix on June 10th.

Episode Notes

We can't emphasize this enough – please be warned in this podcast, we will be reviewing the entire plot of “The Rise of Voltron”. You WILL want to hear our interview with Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos, but PLEASE STOP listening when we start talking about “The Rise of Voltron” that makes up the first 3 episodes of Voltron Legendary Defender, if you don't want to be spoiled.

AFTER you have seen Voltron Legendary Defender on June 10th, at least the first 3 episodes, come back to this podcast and relive "The Rise of Voltron” with us!

We think you will really enjoy hearing from Lauren and Joaquim, talking about the show they've been working on for the last 2 years. There's a lot of exclusive insight, that you won't be able to get anywhere else. We want to thank Lauren, Joaquim, DreamWorks, Netflix, and everyone who helped us set up the interview!

We don't talk about it in the podcast, but there were two other things that happened after we had recorded this podcast. First, the was a Voltron Art Show on June 4th at the Hero Complex Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. Over 40 different artists contributed to this event. Joaquim, Lauren, Josh Keaton (Shiro), Kimberly Brooks (Allura) and Neil Kaplan (Zarkon) dropped by for the opening night.

You can go here (http://hcgart.com/collections/voltron) to order your own pieces of Voltron art, or if you are in the L.A. Area, you can still see the exhibition before it closes on June 19th.

Second, we heard that Sideshow Collectibles is putting the Voltron Maquette on Pre-Order on Thursday, June 9th, the day before Voltron Legendary Defender comes out on Netflix. However, this Voltron is unlike any Voltron you've seen before – at is is the design Will Harbottle and the team at Sideshow envisioned as the Voltron they would want to see in a live-action movie. It's price has still not been published anywhere, and we expect we will all know when it goes on pre-order at http://www.sideshowtoy.com/whats-new/voltron-maquette/ on June 9th.

Go here to see the Voltron Maquette trailer, which shows Voltron in all his glory: http://www.sideshowtoy.com/whats-new/voltron-maquette/

For those of you who wanted to know about the global availability of Voltron Legendary Defender on Netflix, this is the availability news we are getting from the Media site on Netflix.com:

For those of you who live in an area that doesn't have Voltron on Netflix, please make sure you direct your inquiries to the Netflix division that handles your regional area. The more people that cry out for truly global distribution of Voltron, the faster you can get the Defender you love. Just like we are being respectful to all fans by warning them of spoilers about the show in this podcast, please remember that several regions of the world are not able to see this yet when you communicate on social media. Thank you!
