Movies: Voltron Makes the Jump to the Big Screen.
In recent years, while movies based on 1980s toy lines (and their related TV cartoon shows) like Transformers and G.I. Joe were made, another 1980s phenomenon has been struggling to make its way to the big screen: Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Unlike those two franchises, Voltron started not as a toy line, but as a Japanese Anime TV series, which then led to various toys (and comic books too). The concept of Voltron focuses on five young pilots who each control a different massive robot lion, which can then come together to form an even more massive humanoid robot. The news broke this week that Atlas Entertainment (Get Smart, The Brothers Grimm) is working on a big-budget adaptation of Voltron. Rotten Tomatoes.
