'Voltron' reboot gets a new trailer and release date

Fans of the classic '80s cartoon don't have much longer to wait until "Legendary Defender" shows up on Netflix.

Following the release in March of the first images from Netflix's upcoming "Voltron" reboot, the streaming site on Wednesday launched a new trailer for the show.

The reboot of the classic '80s cartoon "Voltron," titled "Legendary Defender," was announced earlier this year as part of a deal between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation. The new show will consist of 13 22-minute episodes, all of which will be available for streaming June 10.

"Legendary Defender" will focus on five teenagers who are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic war. In March, Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery explained that her team was given complete freedom by DreamWorks to develop the new show. "We're trying to keep as much of that classic feel to it as we can," she said. "Ultimately we have huge amounts of nostalgia for [the original] show."

The original "Voltron" was a Japanese-American co-production that ran for three seasons between 1984 and 1986. The show was created from two Japanese shows -- "Beast King GoLion" and "Armored Fleet Dairugger XV" -- with new dialogue and storylines created for the American market. It proved hugely popular, spawning spinoff shows, comic books and video games.

Comcast recently acquired DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 billion.
