Trivia

The show was canceled by Ted Koplar, president of the Voltron rights owner World Events Productions, despite the fact that Voltron was the top syndicated show on the market for boys ages 13 to 21 years old. The success of the new Voltron series brought CGI animation studio Netter Digital, technical accolades for their innovative production pipeline integrating motion-capture with LightWave software. This allowed for the pace of TV animation to be profitable in 3D, the first profitable 3D-animated TV series made. On the heels of Voltron's success, new animation business deals came into Netter in 1999 from Sony TV Animation, Lego, and the U.K. The success was short-lived. Netter Digital failed to capitalize on the success of Voltron due to internal management issues over the cancellation of Crusade (1999), the spin-off series of Babylon 5 (1994) for which Netter Digital had been created to support. Netter Digital closed their doors in 2001 after management could not settle their differences between focusing on animation production vs. launching more live-action shows. See more »

Goofs

The original series showed Arus as located in the Dinubian (or Diamond) Galaxy in the Far Universe while Earth was in the Near Universe (with the Vehicle Voltron defenses). Here, Arus and Earth are incorrectly claimed to be in the same, unnamed galaxy; its Azure, Cerulean, Crimson, and Coral Quadrants that were the Dinubian Galaxy's are referred to when effecting either planet.

User Reviews

Less than successful
27 June 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Voltron 3D is probably all right for the under ten set and the die-hard fans of the old 80s series, but it's really pretty mediocre. The storylines and dialogue are more reminiscent of Power Rangers, and none of the characters are particularly interesting.

Netter Digital is primarily a special effects house, and it shows. The character animation is awful, especially facial movement. There are some blatant mistakes in terms of design and imaging, that I thought people stopped making five years ago. The space battles and explosions, however, are top notch.

There are some great computer animated series out there. This is not one of them.
