"Behold, the dawn of a new age of warfare."
Netflix has released the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 5, and I'm pretty sure fans of the series are going to like what they see. There have been a lot of twists and turns in this series and that's going to continue as the Voltron Force is trying to figure out if their new ally, Prince Lotor, can be trusted or not. At the same time, they are trying to retake the galaxy from the Galra Empire.
Shocked by Prince Lotor coming to their rescue in the fight against the evil witch Haggar at the end of season four, the Paladins struggle with whether or not they can really trust him. Though suspicious, Team Voltron is able to liberate more rebels with the aid of Lotor’s intel. Just as things start to look hopeful, Zarkon strikes, resulting in a shocking chain of events.
Entertainment Weekly had a chance to talk to showrunners Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery about the new alliance between the Paladins and Prince Lotor, saying:
"I think it’s fair to say that we find them kind of questioning whether an alliance is even a possibility. Who really wants to go full in and trust the Galra? There’s so much on the line if you make the wrong decision. So [the Paladins] are very hesitant.
"They’re playing it carefully, and I think it’s about as much of an olive branch as we could’ve gotten from two teams on totally opposite ends of the field there."
I've enjoyed this series! It's been a fun and adventurous ride and I'm excited about watching this latest season.
