Netflix has shared the first look at Kevin Smith’s upcoming Masters of the Universe sequel series Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
We finally have our first look at He-Man and Battle Cat, Skeletor, Teela, Sorceress, Beast Man, and more!
The show was originally described as being the style of an anime, but these character designs are thankfully much closer to the originals that I expected. (Orko looks like he’s been given a big upgrade) You don’t have to question who is who in these first images:
Officially described as:
“The war for Eternia culminates in MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION, an innovative and action-packed animated series that picks up where the iconic characters left off decades ago. After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe.”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation will pick up where the original 80s series ended and will be split into two parts. The first episode of Revelation begins “in lockstep with the old show,” Smith mentions. Then, about halfway through, “things take a shift which allows all the characters to go through these periods of growth.” Executive producer Rob David mentions a “cataclysmic event that would shake it up.”
The voice cast includes Chris Wood as He-Man, Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Griffin Newman as Orco, Stephen Root as Cringer, Diedrich Bader as King Randor and Trap Jaw, Tiffany Smith as Andra, Henry Rollins as Tri-Klops, Susan Eisenberg as Sorceress, Jason Mewes as Stinkor, Phil LaMarr as He-Ro, Tony Todd as Scare Glow, Cree Summer as Priestess, Kevin Michael Richardson as Beast Man, Harley Quinn Smith as Ileena, and original Skeletor voice actor Alan Oppenheimer taking on the role of Moss Man
Produced by Mattel Television with Kevin Smith as showrunner, animated by Powerhouse Animation Masters of the Universe: Revelation will hit Netflix on July 23!
