15. Voltron: Legendary Defender

Released on: 2016
Directed by: Joaquim Dos Santos
Starring: Cree Summer, Steven Yeun, Tyler Labine

In the 1980s, Voltron was seen as a cousin to Transformers. It wasn’t as wide-spread, or as popular, as Transformers, but it also wasn’t the same concept. Now that we’re many years removed from all of the excess of the 1980s, it’s easy to appreciate Voltron — and, more specifically, this reboot — for what it is.

In this show, five lions mechas, powered by Paladins, come together to form the monstrous Voltron set to defend the universe against the forces of the evil Galra empire, who have enslaved humans for thousands of years. Season two of this show will premiere on Netflix in January 2017.
