    Probably promotional support for the live action film. Not sure when that's being released, but it's common for movies like that (Riddick, Val Helsing) to get animated movies to support the movie and mythos. I was kind of hoping the TF's would get an animated movie set in the Movieverse too. Oh well.

    Of all the 80's giant robot properties that needed a decent reboot, Voltron tops my list.

    Classics-style Voltron would rock.

    The Live Action movie is kind of in limbo. The producers have said they hope Transformers does well that the studios will move forward and fast track the movie into production.

    I hope its cool. Voltron was always my favorite cartoon/toy as a child and watching the series on DVD hasn't been too kind to my memories.

    No, no it wouldn't. The classic design is horrifically outdated. It's about as bad as G1. They have to give it an updated look sometime. At least I know the live action movie will do that.

    this thing can go to hell.

    the animation they released a while back of it was pathetic. that shit wouldnt be acceptible at any point in time, certainly not 2007.

    LOL - This was supose to be a new TV series, but now it's direct to DVD.

    As for a Voltron live action movie riding the coat tails of a (possible) hit Transformers movie... there's much better material out there.

    Evangelion
    Bubblegum Crisis
    GaoGaiGar
    Macross
    Gunbuster (one or two)
    FLCL
    Full Metal Panic
    Machine Robo
    Gravion
    Gundam
    Medarot
    Patlabor
    Nadesico
    Rahxephon
    Big O
    Ghost in the Shell
    Appleseed
    Dangaioh
    Eureka Seven
    God Mazinger
    Gad Guard
    Zoids
    Vandread
    Godanner
    Burst Angel
    Sakura Wars
    Zone of Enders
    Megazone 23
    IGPX
    Dai-Guard
    Dancougar
    Kiddy Grade
    Overman King Gainer


    .... then maybe Voltron.

    well we know that Eva is in the concept/early production phases of the movie

    they're probably waiting on TFs before the big old green light is lit as well


    id love to see a Gundam movie. but only if its done right. none of this kiddy weird crap. something like 0083 or 08th MS team. something good. :p

    And would have to be changed drastically. If a Big O movie was too much like the Anime, it would crash and burn at the box office.

    Right because there is a huge base audiance already in place for all of those titles in US. Hollywood is dying to sink a bunch of cash into those projects. :drunk

    Actually, there is a pretty decent market for several of those. I think what he's saying though is that they'd make better films than Voltron would. In most of those cases I'd agree. I very much doubt the more over-the-top stuff like GaoGaiGar would translate well to live action though.
