By the end of January, Netflix fans will have a brand-new season of Voltron: Legendary Defender to binge. Last month, fans learned the animated series would make a comeback with Season 2 on January 20th, and its trailer left fans thrilled. The footage showed the Voltron Force touch base with the new season’s main baddie Emperor Zarkon, and the dangerous clip had fans worried over fan-favorite characters like Shiro and Keith. Now, a brand-new clip from the new season of Voltron has been released, and it is far more lighthearted than any footage fans have seen to date.
In the clip, fans find Allura and Coran stuck in a runaway spacecraft that is in the clutches of a gaping wormhole. The Altean princess and her retainer run into problem after problem. The ship won’t accept coordinates, the wormhole’s gravity cannot be overtaken, and Coran finds himself aging backwards as they grow closer to the anomaly.
You can check out the description of Voltron clip below:
“Allura and Coran are stuck in a compromised wormhole that is causing Coran to rapidly age backwards! His moodswings and lack of focus are among the many obstacles she faces while they are trapped! Find out if they escape before he completely disappears in an all-new season of DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender.”
Speaking with ComicBook.com at New York Comic Con, Voltron writer Tim Hendrick said the new season would explore the show's characters the franchise’s. He also mentioned the show would see the Voltron Force travel through the galaxy and encounter brand-new lifeforms.
