It was only a matter of time before this project was finally greenlit after the success of TRANSFORMERS. That time has finally come, says Variety. 20th Century Fox under their subsidiary, New Regency, has agreed to VOLTRON: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE getting adapted to the big screen under executive producer Mark Gordon who has been developing the project. The producer has hinted that his adaptation will be a post-apocalyptic tale of survival set in New York City and Mexico.

VOLTRON is a sword wielding super robot assembled and disassembled by 5 Galaxy Alliance pilots  who control vehicles shaped like lions. They combine together to make a massive robot that does battle against an evil menace.
