Does anybody remember the old anime with the 5 huge robot lions that combine to form the gigantic robot/mecha VOLTRON - Defender of the Universe? Well, rumor is that "they" ( i dunno who 'they' actually are ) are going to jump on the giant robot/mecha express bandwagon and make a VOLTRON Movie - trying to follow in the sucess of the Transformers film franchise. Anybody else out there have any more info on this? What do you guys think of a Voltron movie? Will it be as sucessful as the Transformers? Let me know what you think... oh yeah, this is my 1st forum topic, so be cool, OK?

Old news.

It's going to fail.

Mark Gordon is the director or producer, perhaps both. He does a shit ton of television, a few movies (B-Class movies at that) and i really don't think he's going to do a good job on it.

Mark helped with Street Fighter, and we all know how big of a fucking failure that was. He also produced 10,000 B.C. which was horrible. Also, the company that is backing this film, New Regency fails in epic proportions as well. Overall, i'm sad to say that America will fuck us over on this one guys.

woah, i feel a little anger in your response...but i DO agree with you, if the movie does come out, it will probably flop...i just hope it doesnt turn out looking like Power Rangers or something...

Yes, there is anger there. Even though i'm young, I watched a lot of 80's cartoons. He-man, transformers, voltron, astro boy, etc. (Side note: He-Man is coming out, same retarded producer) And i just hate how they half-ass these movies and think it's good. They don't do these amazing cartoons justice, and it pisses me off. Astro Boy the movie looks exceptional though.

i agree they need to pull some ideas out of their own asses and leave the the sucessful cartoon/anime alone cuz we all know they will just bring disaster

Good luck getting any of those retards to come up with their own original plot or storyline. Honestly, i don't mind it if someone redoes an amazing cartoon, that's a good thing! But if you're going to do it, do it right at least. Like dragonball.. don't hire some retarded mother fucker to write a brand new storyline totally off of the original. Especially when the writer for the movie hasn't even written shit for movies. It just angers me that they don't do any of these films justice except for Transformers (Which imo, they did an amazing job on)

I agree with you guys- I hate what they did to DBZ and SF Legend of Chun Li. There has been a surge of anime-to-film lately, which is a good thing. but quality-wise those films are lacking. so if there IS definitely going to be a Voltron movie, how do you guys think it will turn out? Are they going to over exaggerate the mecha like Bay did in Transformers? How would it look visually? Im curious to find out... (off topic: Lakers just won!!!)
