Do you remember the cartoon series Denver the Last Dinosaur? This was a show that I used to watch when I was younger, about a group of teenagers that found a dinosaur egg that hatched, and the dinosaur that came from it became their friend and they had many adventures with him. The show was highly acclaimed as being a very educational series as well.
World Events Productions, the company that holds the rights to this and Voltron, as well as created this series is currently at work on a new series as well as a potential film version. They’re doing the same with Voltron, with Voltron: Panthera Force (now under the production title: Voltron Force) premiering this fall, and a live-action movie in active development. It should have come as no surprise that they would also be interested in exploring a rejuvenation of another one of their properties. Especially considering that the original series was recommended by the National Education Association for its engaging, non-violent storylines.
