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). It served as a sequel to the Lion Force Voltron series, set five years after the end of the series (ignoring events from episodes 53 to 72), 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 Netter Digital Entertainment, inc. and Mike Young Productions.
The show won a 1999 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing - Special Class Rick Hinson (supervising sound editor), Elizabeth Hinson. Legal issues occurred when WEP tried to make a new series. Neil Ross, Michael Bell and B.J. Ward reprised their roles as Keith, Lance and Princess Allura for the series.
With antagonist Prince Lotor's escape from prison, the heroic Voltron Force re-assemble against him; but must contend simultaneously with the various monsters and war-ships sent by Lotor (at times, captained by him) and with opposition on their own side, represented by the artificial intelligence "Amalgamus": a sophisticated computer who objects periodically to the Voltron Force's methods.
