Voltron Movie one step closer to reality

Well, it was bound to happen after the amazing success of the Transformers live action movie. New Regency is nearing a deal with the Mark Gordon Co. to adapt Voltron: Defender of the Universe into a live-action film according to Variety.

If you’re a Voltron fan you’re not going to like this next part…

If the deal closes the plot for the film will be as follows: “a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico. Five ragtag survivors of an alien attack band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth’s invaders.”

Now, anyone even remotely familiar with the property is well aware that this plot has abosultey NOTHING to do with the plot of Voltron – which is the story of 5 space explorers sent to the conquered planet of Aris, join forces with a Princess and find the 5 keys to the Voltron lions that allow them to form the mighty robot to defend the planet from the forces of Zarkon and his robeasts.

If they’re going to completely abandon the core ideas and locations of this movie, should they make it?

Of course, this is still so early in the process that just about everything could change, but expect to see Voltron in a theater sooner rather than later.

How these guys miss the concept of “Star Wars meets Transformers” I’ll never know…
