Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

There's a massive market these days in kids' television that plays on parents' nostalgic feelings. Heck, the Hub network is constructed almost solely around nostalgia and kids, from Jem and the Holograms reruns to new series based on Pound Puppies, Transformers, and Strawberry Shortcake.

Voltron Force only seems to exist to sell Voltron toys to wistful parents who remember their own weekday afternoons spent longing for five robot lions that miraculously combined to create one spectacular robot. There are occasionally clever moments in the storytelling and dialogue of Voltron Force, but most of it might as well have been drawn from the template of countless other half-hour "advertainment" series for large toy lines from major manufacturers like Mattel and Hasbro. The computer graphics effectively showcase the classic designs of Voltron and his component parts, but beyond the visceral thrills of watching giant robots beat each other up, there's little to recommend here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
