Dreamworks began streaming a new trailer on Tuesday for the third season of Dreamworks Voltron Legendary Defender. The trailer showcases the third season's story and introduces the antagonist Prince Lotor, voiced by A.J. Locascio.

In the wake of Zarkon's defeat and Shiro's disappearance, the paladins struggle to move forward with no one able to pilot the black lion or the ability to form Voltron. The team must quickly devise a plan as the ascension of Prince Lotor and his generals pulls the team into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse that tests their unity and abilities more than ever before.
The fourth season is set to premiere in October of this year.
