Live Action Voltron Movie Announcement: No Micheal Bay this time!

Alright, I know that a live action adaptation for the Voltron series had been announced before (almost three years ago now), and that it was recently scrapped, despite the vast amount of concept art that was released for it (with that whole Transformers/Michael Bay-esque thing going on with it). But this time, it’s going to be different. It’s real, and it’s happening as I type this post.

World Events Productions (WEP), who brought the original Voltron series to the states, announced at it’s Comic-Con panel on Thursday (partly associated with Nickelodeon’s booth), that Relativity Media, along with Atlus Productions, had optioned to produce a live action adaptation of the Voltron animated series.

And while this announcement is official, many Voltron fans have yet to really celebrate the news, partly due to the fact that Comic-Con is still going, but also out of fear from another cancelation. Given the fickle and money-driven nature of Hollywood, I can’t blame them.

Personally, the only thing that I see as a possible concern is this live-action adaptation of the series crossing into Power Rangers’ territory. And you know what happens when two giant robots run into each other:

Of course, since they’re both on Nickelodeon Networks now, they probably wouldn’t fight each other, too big a risk to job security.

More on this as news comes out.
