The creators and cast of the Netflix original series DreamWorks' Voltron: Legendary Defender offered fans at New York Comic Con an exclusive sneak peek inside the upcoming season in advance of it's October 13 premiere. During the panel, a fan asked Kimberly to choose between Shiro and Lance. She refused to answer on behalf of Princess Allura. But as Kimberly Brooks goes she's Shiro all the way!
Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 3 was set after the success of Zarkon's defeat came at a price: Shiro has vanished. With the ascension of the mysterious Prince Lotor and without a pilot for the black lion, the team must somehow find the strength to keep fighting. But how can they defend the universe without Voltron? Season 3 debuted on Netflix August 4, with this brand new fourth season coming just a few months later. Netflix hasn't announced yet whether or not the show will return for a fifth season yet, but given how the streaming service keeps churning out episodes of this hit series at a rapid pace, it wouldn't be terribly surprising to learn of a Season 5 renewal.
Season 4 kicks off with Shiro back at the Castleship and Keith making a choice that causes a rift between him and Team Voltron. As Allura and team focus on building the Voltron Coalition, Prince Lotor's plans start to take shape. Giving an exclusive look inside the upcoming season, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery, Josh Keaton (voice of Shiro), A.J. Locascio (voice of Prince Lotor), Kimberly Brooks (voice of Allura) and panel moderator EW's Chancellor Agard discussed several teasers shown to the jam-packed audience. Among the clips screened for fans, the cast and crew offered a sneak peek into what Prince Lotor has in store for the paladins this season.
The new clip finds Lotor and his generals flying towards a secret inter-reality gate located on the ruins of Planet Daibazaal. By entering the gate, Lotor hopes to pierce the rift between realities and gather enough Quintessence to satisfy, not only the entire Galra Empire, but his own desires for galactic conquest as well. Have we finally uncovered Lotor's true endgame? Find out what lies beyond the rift in an all-new season of DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, on Netflix October 13! The series centers on five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as Voltron.
Additional clips screened look into the tension between Keith and Shiro struggling to determine who should lead Team Voltron, Pidge furthering her quest to find her family, and Allura and Coran in a serious mixup while trying to satisfy their newly discovered love of milkshakes. DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender season 1, 2, & 3 are currently available on Netflix. Catch season 4 exclusively on Netflix this Friday, October 13th!
