As Netflix expands its suite of original programming it's going to the nostalgia well once again. The good news here is that instead of another sitcom spinoff like Fuller House, we're getting Voltron: Legendary Defender. Today at Wondercon 2016 its partner Dreamworks Animation showed off a teaser trailer and some artwork ​to confirm everything still looks familiar to children of the 80s.

The first 13 episodes are slated to arrive June 10th, with what executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos told USA Today will be a mix of "epic adventure" and "the campy nature of five lions that become a giant robot." Its cast includes Tyler Labine, Josh Keaton, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Kimberly Brooks, Rhys Darby and The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun -- but we're pretty sure you stopped reading at "giant robot."
