The television series known as Voltron Force is an engaging epic that follows an aspiring, but sometimes rather impulsive, young cadet named Daniel and his friends, Vince and Larmina, as they become stronger in their attempt to become high-class space pilots. Their quest is fueled by their undying interest in the robotic force known as Voltron. Voltron itself is a secret squad containing five members that were thought to have been broken up after the Sky Marshall's brigade corrupted their Mechanical Lions formerly used to defeat anyone who threatened the galaxy. Keith, Lance, Princess Alura, Pidge, and Hunk each show a unique set of skills used against the corrupt Sky Marshal Wade and recently revived evil ruler Lotor. Daniel and Vince are recruited by the underground Voltron alliance and thrown into a secret world they thought had ceased to exist. After meeting the crew, they meet up with a former pilot, Princess Alura, and her niece, Larmina. This trio would become the turning tide in the war, preventing Lotor's reign over the entire universe. Voltron Force was created by World Events Productions, an American-based animation distributing company with the help of director John Dulaney. Dulaney personally sought out World Events Productions as soon as he got word that they were attempting to make a recreation of the 1980 series Voltron: Defenders of the Universe. They explained that reintroducing the pilots of the robotic sabers was what their show was all about. They wanted the modern youth of today to experience the crew and their heroic adventures on earth and in space. Voltron Force was first aired in 2011 on Nickelodeon. The series contained twenty-eight episodes ending in a cliff hanger involving the main character, Daniel, and although a second series has been talked about, nothing has yet been confirmed. Each episode was approximately 23 minutes long, filling a 30-minute time slot.
