Voltron: The Third Dimension is an American computer-animated television series, done in the same animation style as Beast Wars: Transformers and Reboot. It departed from the original Lion Voltron's animated look, as well as some character changes, such as the physical appearance of Prince Lotor (now voiced by Tim Curry, taking over the role originally voiced by Lennie Weinrib).[2] It served as a sequel to the Lion Voltron series, set three years after the end of that program, and among the tools used to bridge the gap was an official starmap as designed by writer Shannon Muir, and finalized in partnership with World Events Productions. The show was animated by Mike Young Productions.[3] The show won a 1999 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing - Special Class Rick Hinson (supervising sound editor), Elizabeth Hinson.[4] Legal issues occurred when WEP tried to make a new series.[5] Neil Ross, Michael Bell and B.J. Ward reprised their roles as Keith, Lance and Princess Allura for the series.

Plot[edit]

Evil threatens the safety of the galaxy. The maniacal Prince Lotor escaped from his prison in deep space. He formed a secret alliance with the mysterious Witch Haggar to destroy all that is good. With Lotor's escape, the heroic Voltron Force realized that they were needed once more. With the aid of their robot lions, the space explorers must once again form the mighty robot known as Voltron to protect the universe from Lotor and Haggar's forces of Doom. The Galaxy Alliance, under the leadership of Amalgamus and the reformed King Zarkon, have called the Voltron Force and their lions together again.
