Timed in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the original show and toy line, Voltron Force will premiere on Nicktoons next year with a run of 26 half-hour episodes. A new Mattel toy line will be released for the anniversary as well.
Considering the original series was produced by Mattel with the express purpose of selling its toys, it sounds like they're testing that tried and true 80's formula in the, shit what is this, the teens? The 2010's? It will be interesting to see how it pans out. There are so many more programming options for kids these days than there were in the 80s, it could get left in the dust.
The article mentions the Power Rangers will be getting a reboot on Nickelodeon as well, and last week Rorie reported that Thundercats will be coming to Cartoon Network. Nostalgia overload!
What say you? Do you think a film release would have been better?
