THIS ONE IS STRICTLY FOR THE DIE-HARDS...
on March 29, 2002
This 2 hour made-for-television "Voltron" movie debuted near the end of Voltron's original run in late 1986 (it even aired on primetime where I lived!). In this sequence, (animated for American audiences) both the Lion and Vehicle Force Voltrons are featured, and they join up to battle King Zarkon and Prince Lotor's "Fleet Of Doom". In my humble opinion, the animation and music from this special (along with the 2nd season of the Lion Force Voltron) does not measure up to the original animation of Golion and Dairugger XV, the anime that the Voltron series was based on.
However, it is very cool to see the casts of both versions of the Voltron series interacting for the first time onscreen. For those who want to discover the magic of the Voltron series for the first time, I highly recommend starting with the original five episodes of the Lion Force Voltron, sometimes available as "Castle Of Lions", or on Amazon you will find at least the four of the first five episodes on "Vol 2: Space Explores Captured" and "Vol. 3: A Ghost & Four Keys".
Thanks for reading!
P.S. I was wondering if any other Amazonians out there would be interested in buying a Voltron Television Soundtrack (like the "Robotech" one) if one were made available...if so, let me know. Thanks much in advance for your time!
