Netflix announced in January that it teamed up with Dreamworks Animation to revive the 1980s mecha cartoon, "Voltron," and stream it on its site within the year. Good news for everyone who had been waiting for more information because during the Voltron Panel at the Wondercon 2016 on March 25, the trailer for the revived series was unveiled.

It was not only the trailer that was released but the premiere date as well. The Votlron Panel announced that the first 13 episodes of "VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER," each lasting 22 minutes, will be released on Netflix on June 10! Form VOLTRON (and watch the trailer below)!

"Formed by five robotic lions, the mighty warrior known as Voltron returns after 10,000 years to protect the universe from evil," the premise reads.

Most of the people involved in the revival grew up with Voltron, even the voice actors, so you can imagine how careful the production was with getting Votlron right. They also dreamed up something bigger for the legendary mecha warrior, as confirmed by its executive producer, Joaquim Dos Santos.

Dos Santos also said the audience will get a more in-depth look at the pilots because they all have an important back story.

Fans of the original franchise, remember evil King Zarkon? Well, since Voltron is back, he will also make a comeback and he has not been idle in the past 10,000 years while Princess Allura was asleep.

Josh Keaton (Shiro), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Pidge), Tyler Labine (Hunk), Jeremy Shada (Lance) and Steven Yeun (Keith) voice the five pilots and Kimberly Brooks voices Princess Allura.

What's probably the best thing about the updated version of the show is that it will focus on making the characters more realistic. Specifically, some episodes will put Voltron in a very sticky situation that will have the viewers on the edge of their seats wondering if they will survive for another fight. The pilots will also have to change their tactics every now and then.

"Not everything is solved by Voltron alone. Sometimes they need to beat something just as the lions. Sometimes they just do it as themselves fighting as men," Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery reveals.

Ok, Netflix, we're ready.
