When Netflix began releasing She-Ra again in 2018, it appeared inevitable that they’d embody He-Man in some kind or one other. Because it turned out, She-Ra and the Princesses of Energy was unbelievable sufficient – and gathered a fanbase large sufficient – that it wanted no help from the likes of its authentic co-brand. On the identical time, Netflix determined it needed to go forward and create one other present based mostly on the unique toy line, this time actually selecting up the place the unique 1980’s TV present (based mostly on the toys) left off.
Netflix’s personal “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” present is an “epic story” that “pickes up the place the 80’s sequence left off and brings the ability of Grayskull again to the world.” Very like the unique TV present, this present will deal with a universe that’s very toy-friendly.
As famous by Film Critic Sean Chandler, it’s simple for an outdated He-Man fan to observe the trailer and say “I’ve obtained that toy” – for instance: Bashasaurus! This fully absurd car seems for only a second within the trailer, however all the things about it – dimension, form, and even shade – are clearly meant to match the unique toy.
The discharge of this present matches up with Mattel re-releasing sizeable quantities of He-Man toys in shops, each in barely modernized kind and in retro styling. He-Man toys had been at all times made to bash – and the bashing shall proceed!
We gained’t know for sure if the present is nice till we see it – but when the voice solid is any indication, that is going to be a masterpiece.

And as if it weren’t exceedingly apparent, proper out the gate, Skeletor is voiced by Mark Hamill.
The present is produced by Kevin Smith. Typically, when Smith is answerable for a manufacturing, there’s a reasonably first rate probability we’re going to see both Smith himself or Jason Mewes as a part of the solid. On this case, we’re getting Jason Mewes solid as essentially the most smelly character of the bunch: Stinkor. We’re additionally getting Kevin Smith’s daughter (Harley Quinn Smith) because the voice of Ileena.
This manufacturing will likely be launched in “components” fairly than abruptly. Whereas Netflix has historically launched episodic TV reveals a complete season at a time, they seem to have realized the worth of releasing one episode at a time from Disney. “Half 1” of Masters of the Universe: Revelation will likely be launched on Netflix on July 23, 2021.
