3 months ago I had decided to watch the origin of Voltron. And I’ve got to say, I was not in the slightest bit disappointed.
Yeah, I do admit that Lion Force (the 1984 version) was extremely cheesy. BUT that is what made it so enjoyable. I have grown to love almost all of the characters within the story.
This show has anything you could possibly imagine:
A gigantic robot that easily wins every possible battle to ever exist…
The stereotypical “Sleeping Beauty”…
The corny romance…
And even that one character with an accent so comedic that you can’t help but laugh hysterically every time you hear it.
You name it, it’s probably in Voltron: Lion Force.
Not looking for any of that? Well, maybe try Voltron: Legendary Defender.
The robot is practically the same.
However there is no weak, cliché princess.
No romance whatsoever.
No mullets. Okay, maybe just one.
And no incomprehensible accents.
With this new update on the show, so many characters and personalities have changed for the better. But unfortunately some fans that admired Voltron back in the 80’s are quite upset about that. Honestly, if nothing was shifted in the 2016 version, then it would end up in complete failure. Especially in such a cinematically-hungry society like today’s.
Nevertheless, some things will always remain oddly similar.
