"Voltron" Movie is Dead, for Now

Posted: June 8th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Voltron" Movie is Dead, for NowSubmit Comment
For the last couple of years, the plan has always been to turn the "Voltron" franchise into a feature film. But now that plan has been scrapped in order to slowly re-introduce the characters through toys and a new animated television series.

Starting next year, Nicktoons will air 26 half-hour episodes of "Voltron Force," about five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe. Series will remain faithful to the old show, while introducing new recruits to fight alongside the original characters.

It's the latest of several properties, including "ThunderCats" and "The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," to scrap plans for an initial film in favor of relaunching the brand through TV and toys.

They keep pushing off this golden egg of a movie but bullsh*t like "killers" and "precious" get made? We need movie police to punch Hollywood in the balls

P.S. the girl from precious is also the Guy from the blind side. (S)he had an unfair advantage at award shows. Shame on him/her.

Again. If you can see this coming, how is it news ?

Let me guess. Next week, you'll say Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb.

Never make this movie. Hollywood has failed with ever other great 80's/90's cartoon/toy and this will be no different.

And I'm sure the new series will be horrible. They'll NEVER stay faithful to the original in this day and age because it's faster and cheaper to do animation the sh*tty way and not the good way as was done during the golden era of this franchise.

I am really scared about Voltron Force....
Really? New characters to help fight along the core cast each week? Really?!?!?!

Why can Hollywood not see that the crap they pump out is just that... crap! Oh that's right because people give their hard earned cash to the crap that then buys producers their fourth AND fifth yachts....

The movie is pretty much already written. Use the first 5-10 episodes of Season 1 and make it grittier.

I can outline a movie version in about 16 points:
Planet Arus has been under attack by Zarkon's empire, including hordes of troops and armadas.
The Galaxy Alliance, bound by a previous "pacifist" treaty, sends a classified 5-man "special ops" team to Arus to secretly help with the insurgency.
En-route they are captured by Zarkon's forces, tortured and branded.
The team manages to escape in a warship, crash land near an old ruined castle as they try to make their way to the castle for refuge and to make contact with Coran, the ambassador of Arus to the Alliance.
Upon arriving at the castle they are greeted by Coran and Princess Allura, who have been sheltering refugees from the surrounding towns. King Alfor was killed many years ago in one of the first attacks on Arus.
Spies get back to Zarkon that the Special Ops team survived the crash and were last seen making their way to the ruined castle so he sends a "special weapon" to Arus to obliterate the ancient castle.
A message is sent out by Zarkon to the people of Arus, a la the new V series and broadcasting on the under bellies of ships, that he has sent a weapon of mass destruction to the castle since they were harboring fugitives. Arus has 3 days to turn them over.
The legend of Voltron is discussed among everyone, yet they confuse Voltron for only symbolizing the 5 Lions.
Coran knows that King Alfor had hid the secret away in case Zarkon got his hands on it. The team searches the castle for clues. The Princess is weeping in the King's crypt when she accidentally triggers a holographic recording of her father, much younger, leaving his newborn daughter a message of hope and revealing the keys to the Lions.
With keys in hand, the team separates and go searching for the Lions individually. After a day of travel for each, they find that their respective Lions have been integrated into the surrounding terrain.
Upon meeting back up at the castle with all 5 Lions, Zarkon reveals that his WMD is a Ro-Beast. It starts off as an average sized bi-pedal creature that is exposed to an agent that causes it to grow very large rapidly.
After a trouncing of all 5 separate Lions, another holographic image of King Alfor appears in the c*ckpits showing them that the 5 are really meant to be ONE in their greatest time of need.
Voltron is formed and is triumphant after an epic battle, but has been taken quite a distance away from the castle.
Enraged, Zarkon opens fire on the ruined castle with everything that the armada has. Voltron scrambles back to the castle, but cannot make it in time. Inside, Coran and the Princess activate an ultimate self defense mechanism as everything is crashing around them. Out of the old castle rises a modern, crystalline/metallic castle with turrets and defenses.
Voltron tears through the armada as the new castle destroys the rest with their armament.
Movie ends with Zarkon retreating from Arus and beckoning for his son to return from his conquests from the other side of the galaxy.

In the sequel, I would have Lotor kill Sven, causing the Princess to take her role as the Blue Lion's pilot. So begins Lotor's obsession with Allura, because he views her as a warrior princess. Mix in a kidnapping plot and more Ro-Beasts and the sequel is done as well!!!

What do you think?
