Today, Netflix sets loose its heroic, teen-pilot mechs upon the world with all 13 episodes of DreamWorks' Voltron: Legendary Defender now available for streaming on its site.  The celebrated resurrection of the original '80s giant robo series has been getting a lion's share of the media attention in recent weeks, with a smashing sizzle reel, clips and trailers galore, and it appears that Mir Studios' (The Legend of Korra) animators have perfectly rendered the vivid retro look we all grew up with.  Ready to form Voltron?  Yes, please!!

Here's the official synopsis:

The Netflix original series DreamWorks’ Voltron: Legendary Defender reimagines one of the most popular fan-favorite shows of all time in this all-new comedic action-packed show from executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) and co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra).

Five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as Voltron.

Check out this roaring pack of eight new images of the paladins and some vicious intergalactic robeasts and tell us if you're going to join up with Voltron this weekend!
