Transmissions: Netflix Brings Back He-Man in the New Series- Masters of the Universe: Revelation…the Power Returns This July!

There isn’t anyone who grew up in the 80’s that doesn’t know He-Man. I am sure that a good number of them, myself included, who can recite the opening monologue. Now He-Man is about to get a 21st century upgrade from film maker and über nerd, Kevin Smith for Netflix.



An Introductory Q&A with Kevin Smith (Showrunner/EP)

Kevin Smith on growing up with MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE:

I watched all of the TV series growing up, it was everywhere in the ‘80s. These characters started off as toys and ended up becoming part of the global pop culture fabric. So much of this show has been possible because of the love and affection for this world at every level of production and the fandom surrounding this franchise. A big reason we got such top tier voice talent is because people genuinely want to be a part of this world. So many of us were touched by these stories and these characters early in our lives and were so happy to come back to Eternia. But even if you’ve never watched a single episode of the show or don’t know this universe at all, you can jump right into the story. It’s a really classic, universal action-adventure epic about growth, discovery, magic, and power. This series explores destiny in a fresh way. There’s a lot of reconciling with secrets, betrayal, trust, acceptance, love, and ultimately, loss.


Kevin Smith on what fans can expect from the new series:

Narratively our show is set up as the next episode in the legacy ‘80s animated series that aired from 1983-1985. This is a continuation of that story. We’re playing with the original mythology and characters, and revisiting and digging deeper into some of the unresolved storylines. Visually we also made the conscious decision to lean into the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE line of toys for inspiration as well. Mattel owns this entire vast library of that artwork, so right away we wanted the show to open with classic pieces of that artwork. Mattel has been committed to this look since they first started as a toy line in the ’80s, and now we’re leaning into it and honoring it.
