Coming at you for a special event from Monday through Thursday of this week,  ANIMATED INSIGHTS BY SHANNON MUIR takes you inside Shannon’s latest reflections on her passion for animation as a medium, and other animated insights about life. To catch up on all posts, check out the Animated Insights portion of the website! This week, Shannon talks about VOLTRON: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE, celebrating its 35th anniversary this month.

Later this month, 35 years ago, VOLTRON: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE appeared on televisions around the globe and became an international sensation and an icon that has endured all that time, including three other animated series based on the property.

In anticipation of the 35th anniversary, I recently got the chance to reunite with my friends Marc Morrell and Greg Tyler for a LET’S VOLTRON podcast marking their return to reviewing episodes of the original series. This will be followed by a 35th anniversary podcast, so keep your ears out for it!

Join me tomorrow for another ANIMATED INSIGHTS special!
