After Princess Allura has a nightmare featuring her deceased mother, she follows a white lion into the Arusian forests, believing it to be the reincarnation of her father, unaware she is being lead into a trap by Haggar. Keith, Lance, Pidge and Hunk rush out to rescue the princess before she comes to harm.

  • In the script, the writers jokingly note in the close-up shot of white lion's mouth roaring as he approaches a tied-up Lance that due to the lack of tonsils in the lion's mouth he “must've had tonsillectomy”.

  • The Robeast's vocal noises before diving into the water to save Haggar is translated in the script as: “Gotta save Haggar!”

When Voltron was dubbed from Golion, the series suffered a number of edits, mostly to remove material that was considered objectionable or inappropriate for Voltron. However, some of the deleted material was intended to be featured in the series only to wind up on the cutting room floor anyway. This section details what deleted material was intended to be featured in "Secret Of The White Lion". Also detailed here are lines of dialogue that was scripted (and likely recorded) but not present in the episode.

  • Deleted from Allura's nightmare was a short sequence where she finds Keith, Lance, Pidge, Hunk, Coran and Nanny laying dead on the ground. The scene as presented in the script (which takes place right after she falls to the ground):

    Several deleted shots from the sequence:

*Angle at Keith & group --

*-- camera pans group*

*Reacting to what she's seen o.s.*

Some lines of dialogue were originally scripted differently. This section details the noteworthy differences.

  • In the close-up shot of Allura's face right before Lance opens fire on the white lion, the Princess was originally scripted to yell toward the lion “Help him, father!” instead of gasping.

  • Haggar's line “Yes, my pet, my magic has worked like a charm!” was originally scripted as: “Yes, tabby, my magic has worked like a charm!”

  • Haggar's line “Well, you'll soon come running into my trap!” was originally scripted as: “Well, you'll come running into my trap very soon!”
