The New Voltron Cartoon on Netflix Is Being Headed Up by Legend of Korra Alums

Voltron #1 cover by Alex Ross.

Netflix’s animated Voltron reboot just took a step in the right directon. Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos have been named as the showrunners for Voltron: Legendary Defender, both known for their work on Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra.

If you’re going to hire two people to run a cartoon, picking folks who worked on two of the best, most beloved series of recent memory is not a bad idea. Dos Santos was a director and producer for both Avatar series, while Montgomery was a producer and storyboard artist for Korra (although she also did storyboard work for the excellent Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes and Young Justice cartoons).


There’s still no other info regarding the show, so it’s still a huge unknown (made up of five, smaller unknowns). But suffice it to say the series looks like it’s in pretty good robot lion jaws hands.
