As somber music plays, the trailer shows footage of Prince Lotor, the son of the previous antagonist Zarkon, raising his sword to assemble his troops in a space assault on the Paladins. After a lion is knocked out of the air, Lotor quips, "No Black Lion, no Voltron." Before the trailer ends ,we see a glimpse of the Black Lion powering up before unleashing a thunderous growl.
