These days there’s no shortage of 80’s fans and those of us who grew up then have never forgotten our roots. As numerous properties from that decade (read: the most awesomest era ever) have become feature length films, others still are a long way off. Transformers, TMNT, G.I Joe are but a few that have leapt to the silver screen, to varied results mind you, but their films didn’t come out of nowhere. Those same franchises have been chugging along and staying fresh in fans’ minds via comics, toy and various cartoon shows all these years.
Voltron and Thundercats, two highly beloved series, have had their films stuck in development hell for too long and as such, one fan has decided he’s tired of waiting for the studios to get their stuff together. This video below is only a fan film but similar to the pretty sweet and ambitious TMNT fan made short ‘Fight the Foot’, this shows lots of promise and it’s a pretty awesome premise. Enjoy…
When a man regains consciousness in a Voltron battle lion after an “accident” he has to decide does he live a few more minutes or try to tell the world what happened… the end is only the beginning.
Great idea to start things off with Voltron and the Galaxy in trouble. But let me ask you: Whaddya think? Can you see a film taking off after this? Anyone else tired of waiting for a Voltron film??
