Animated mech porn

Shows like House of Cards and Daredevil might get all of the attention, but Netflix's impressive push into original programming is on all fronts — including children's shows. One of the most highly-anticipated is the Voltron revival from Dreamworks Animation, and this weekend we're getting our very first look at the new show.

The 59-second spot focuses on the assembly of the dynotherms into the titular Defender of the Universe, which should bring back memories to fans of the original ‘80s animated show. It's pretty much mech porn so far, but no one is complaining.

Netflix's revival is officially called Voltron: Legendary Defender, and it's just one of several shows that are part of the streaming service's partnership with Dreamworks Animation. There's also a new show called Trollhunters from Guillermo del Toro, and the deal encompasses global distribution for Dinotrux and The Adventures of Puss in Boots as well.
