‘Voltron’ Reboot, Del Toro’s ‘Trollhunters’ Set a Course For Netflix

A reimagining of “Voltron” and a new fantasy series from Guillermo del Toro will debut this year on Netflix as part of an expanded multi-year deal with DreamWorks Animation.

Del Toro’s “Trollhunters” is described as “a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.”

Adapted from a pair of anime series, the hit “Voltron” originally aired in syndication from September 1984 to November 1985, spawning a follow-up series and a seemingly endless parade of merchandise and tie-ins. An animated prequel of sorts, “Voltron Force,” aired in 2011-2012 on Nicktoons.

“Voltron” and “Trollhunters” are only part of the slate of new series being developed through the Netflix-DreamWorks deal.
