This week, I talk to Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos, the producers of Voltron: Legendary Defender, as well as, Bex Taylor-Klaus and Tyler Labine, the voices of Pidge and Hunk, about the recently released Season 3 of the hit Netflix Original. And if you are a fan of voice acting, Bex & Tyler have some great things to say about that too!
Without spoilers, let me say that Season 3 was so amazing! The characters were really explored more in this season, in regards to what makes them tick and the motives behind what they do. We also had some light shined on the lives of the original Paladins and their relationships, notably King Alfor, Haggar, and Zarkon. The season was only 7 episodes (ughhhh) but it’s worth it because Season 4 releases in October!
Let me know how you feel about Season 3 in the comments!

If you haven't finished Voltron Legendary Defender Season 3 on Netflix, now's the time to remedy that particular oversight. If you're caught up but have questions, then this chat with showrunners Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery is just the thing you need. We talked about the current season's seven-episode order and how it plays into their storytelling plans, how the introduction of Prince Lotor has set the Paladins off balance, and the decision to tell the origin story of the Mighty Voltron. Before we jump into the interview, here's a reminder that it'… »

With Season 3 of Voltron Legendary Defender now on Netflix, the rebooted series of the 80s anime classic continues to get better and better. Fans have a wealth of information to take in despite the season's relatively short, seven-episode run thanks in part to the show's balance between honoring existing source material and striving forward into the unknown with original storytelling. A tip of the cap to showrunners Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery for that; keep an eye out for my interview with both executive producers early next week. By the end of Season 2 (that'… »

Warner Home Entertainment is commemorating Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary leading up to the June 2 release of Patty Jenkins’ feature film. Joining in on the fun is this week’s rerelease of 2009’s animated film, directed by Lauren Montgomery.
This new edition, out as a Combo Pack with Bu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD, comes with just one new extra (the old ones remain): What Makes a Wonder Woman with a nice assortment of people chatting about her cultural significance, including Jenkins, Montgomery, Phil Jimenez, William Moulton Marston biographer Jill Lepore, and a few others for good measure.
Here’s our original review, which remains unchanged:
The DC Universe series of animated features got off to a rocky start with the Superman vs. Doomsday offering but has gotten steadily better. New Frontier was pretty amazing and now they offer up Wonder Woman, which may be the closest we get to »

Home Entertainment honors the world’s greatest female super hero with the release of Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.
Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.
Moving on to the official synopsis, »

Without a doubt, one of the strongest debuts for an animated series, last year, was Dreamworks Animations and World Event Production’s Voltron: Legendary Defenders! Animated by Studio Mir, and spearheaded by Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend Of Korra fame, the first season of the nostalgia-heavy robot lion-themed animated adventure made its debut via...

Voltron Season 2 is coming and it’s looking to be just as good as season 1. Check out the all new trailer.
So the first season of Voltron was not disappointing. I had high hopes for this show and I must say they were surpassed after my epic binge watch of the series. Well Season 2 is set to debut January 20th and I can say that is all my tv will be tuned to that day. Admittedly the first season ended bleakly with the team separated, Alura captured, the that revelation that Zarkon was indeed the paladin for the Black Lion before Shiro. Dreamworks executive producers Joaquim De Santos and Lauren Montgomery in an interview with Entertainment Weekly say to look for more character development as the team is separated and having to find it other across an expansive galaxy.
Now this is where this incarnation of Voltron is going to separate itself from others. »
