First up today, we’re happy to bring you an exclusive clip from the new season of DreamWorks Animation’s Voltron Legendary Defender! Season 5 of the Netflix show just arrived this past Friday, so if you haven’t watched it yet, avoid this clip since it’s rather spoilery. We’ll bump it a little further down on this post to give you a chance to escape by also telling you that Season 6 of Voltron is set to arrive on Netflix this summer on June 15th!
We’re expecting the battle between the rebellion and the empire to continue in this, presumably, 7-episode season, and as you can tell from the clip below, things are never going to be the same after this epic duel.
Check it out below and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments after getting caught up on the rest of the week’s animation news!
