Netflix has presented the final trailer of his long-awaited new adaptation in the form of an animated series of the Mattel franchise Masters of the Universe, all this to the rhythm of the famous eighties song ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ by Bonnie Tyler. A) Yes, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, the sequel to the original animated series from the 1980s, follows the adventures of He-Man, Skeletor and company through a new vision of Eternia from the director, screenwriter and actor Kevin Smith. Its premiere is scheduled for July 23, 2021.
Premiere on Netflix on July 23, 2021
Thus, the series will offer fans a first batch of five episodes in which Teela will embark on a new adventure to try to find out who has stolen the Sword of Power and thus prevent the end of Eternia and the entire universe. And the trailer cannot make its intention clearer, which is none other than to maintain the very personal style of the original series while respecting the character designs and its world, although enhancing its staging with a high level of animation.
Kevin Smith is the main responsible for the return of Masters of the Universe together with the animation studio Powerhouse Animated Studios, who already worked on the Netflix series Castlevania. All this with a cast of voices in their original version more than striking with Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Chris Wood as He-Man, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Alicia Silverstone like Queen Marlena, Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man, Lena Headey como Evil-Lyn, Alan Oppenheimer (the original Skeletor) as Moss Man, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms y Griffin Newman como Orco.
“I watched the entire TV series growing up, it was everywhere in the 80s. These characters started out as toys and ended up becoming part of popular culture international. Much of this series has been made possible by the love and affection for this world of the production team and the franchise fandom. If we have had a first-rate cast of voices, it is because they wanted to be part of this world. Many of us were touched by those stories and characters early in our lives, and we are so happy to return to Eternia. The series explores destiny in a refreshing way. Talk about reconciliation and about secrets, betrayal, trust, acceptance, love and lastly, loss”Says Kevin Smith about his new series.
