Weve had: The original anime cartoon and defender of the universe, "Voltron" ran briefly from 1984 to 1985. There were lions, then cars in a later iteration, that all formed a giant, helpful robot warrior. We got: The TV show "Voltron Force" took flight in 2011, but not much excitement followed. We want: A movie ... with robot lions! Trucks are overrated, and minivans have terrible acceleration. Yes, "Transformers" and even "Power Rangers" have planted their flags with machines that change around, but Voltron predates them, is more outer space-based and should have its say.
