Masters of the Universe | Kevin Smith Is Bringing The Power Of Grayskull Back From The 80’s

Published

“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix”

Masters of the Universe will be arriving sooner than we thought. But not in the form of the recently announced live-action version starring Noah Centineo. But instead, will come in the form of a Netflix anime series titled, ‘Masters of the Universe: Revelation.’ The series will be a continuation of the 1980’s cartoon, and will focus on “Unresolved storylines” from the show. Kevin Smith is set to executive produce the series, and surprised fans with his announcement at the annual “Power-Con convention.” Here’s what Smith had to say about his upcoming project:

The new series, titled “Masters of the Universe: Revelation,” will take place in the Mattel toy inspired world and will focus on some of the unresolved storylines of the classic ‘80s show. Smith will serve as showrunner and executive producer.

“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe,” Smith said. “In ‘Revelation,’ we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”

Rob David, the vice president of Mattel had this to add about the upcoming series:

‘Masters of the Universe’ has been a cultural phenomenon for generations, inspiring fans to discover their own power within. Fans of this franchise have been waiting for the continuation of these characters, and Kevin Smith, as a ‘Masters’ superfan himself, is the perfect champion and partner to expand the canon through a dynamic animated series on Netflix.”
