“World Class! I trust Mark Reyes will pull this off because he did an amazing job with Encantadia. This will be setting the next level of visual effects in the Philippines,” a netizen commented.

In a previous interview, the director of the project Mark Reyes V confirmed that GMA Network has partnered with TOEI and Telesuccess. The network also engaged the services of Riot Inc. Post Production along with GMA Post Video graphics team in handling the CGI and live-action elements of the series.

The director also reveals the reason behind the materialization of this project, “It has been a 7-year journey for me to make Voltes V a reality. This is a passion project from someone who is a true fan. Someone who grew up believing in the overall theme of Voltes V which is family, love, and fighting for good. And without GMA, this would still remain a pipe dream.”
