Voltron: Defender of the Universe - 'Legend' or 'Saga'? We've Got Title Info, Box Art and a Date!

Whatever it ends up being called, this collection of the 7 first Lion Force episodes will arrive on August 16th

Posted by David Lambert
Last week we brought you the details about how World Events Productions (WEP) is teaming up with Classic Media in a new DVD deal, the first title being a single-disc release of the first 7 "Lion Force" episodes listed at the time as Voltron: Defender of the Universe - The Legend Begins. This $12.99 SRP disc, meant to bring the beginnings of the original show to young fans of the upcoming new Nicktoons series Voltron Force (it premieres next month), is now up for pre-order at we've also got the scoop on package art for this title. Except the title's not the title, because instead of "Legend" the box image we received, and the Amazon listing, both say "Saga." As in Voltron: Defender of the Universe - The Saga Begins.

We checked in with WEP, and were told that "Saga" is an early name, and the packaging image we received from our retailer contacts is an early picture, and that neither name nor box art have been finalized and signed off yet. In the end, it will probably be "legend," and there's a good chance that the art you see below will be used, just with the proper title. IF there's a change, however, we'll certainly bring that to you just as soon as we possibly can. In the meantime, have a look...for now, anyway. And feel free to place your pre-order at Amazon, which is currently taking advance purchases for just $8.99 after discount...a nice enough price that fans who already own these episodes might want to spring for the new disc just to get the brand new extras we reported on last time! We also have a specific street date now for the release: August 16th. Let's go Voltron force!
