Lauren Montgomery is an executive producer, director, and storyboard artist for Voltron: Legendary Defender. She has done previous work as a storyboard artist and a director for animated series such as Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
Montgomery was a producer on Legend of Korra, a storyboard artist on Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as a director for DC Animated movies, like Green Lantern.
- Montgomery's list of "must haves" for the series included that Pidge must be a girl and that there must be an episode with mermaids. The movie The Little Mermaid was one of her biggest inspirations as a child to becoming an artist.
- Montgomery describes meeting "Weird Al" Yankovic when he was cast to voice Blumfump as one of the best days of her life, as he is one of her childhood heroes and she had been asking for him to be cast in many things previously.
- Montgomery wanted Allura as a Paladin since the beginning of series production, and wanted the Paladins to adhere to the mis-match of suit colors and Lion colors seen in Defender of the Universe. Seeing different incarnations of the characters where their outfits matched their Lions is something that always bothered her because she grew up as a fan of the original Voltron show, so she chose for Legendary Defender to allow the mis-match to be portrayed as a natural progression.
- Montogomery's favorite things about Season Three are the introduction of Allura in pink Paladin armor and the introduction of Lotor's generals.
