There’s been talk of a live action Voltron movie ever since Transformers hit theaters back in 2007. It reinvigorated the franchise, broke a few box office records, and launched a couple careers (Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox), so it’s only natural that the folks behind Voltron would want to do the same. Over at JoBlo, they’ve posted some concept art that displays the new design of the heroes and surprisingly they don’t look bad. Take a look…
Atlas Entertainment is behind the Voltron revamp and they’ve hired screenwriters Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to pen the story for the film. The duo previously worked on the upcoming Conan reboot and they’re currently developing the Dr. Strange and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune adaptations.
After looking at these photos we can clearly see that they’re toning down the cornball factor and amping up the primal core of the characters. There’s always been a rivalry between Transformers and Voltron, but after Revenge of the Fallen, and our lack of interest in the upcoming sequel, Voltron might have a real shot.
What do you think of the concept art for Voltron? Do you think the movie could be better than Transformers?
