Masters of the Universe: Revelation (Netflix, July 23) - Official Teaser Trailer


Recommended Posts

When I heard the announcement earlier, it put such a big smile on my face! Massive fan of the cartoons, even the movie has a slight sweet spot over time. Amazing voice talent and potential with the writing team involved. Totally down for ALL of this!

yeah I think some of my childhood woke up there. Although the Cartoon Network version was pretty great as well From like 10 years back

 

I just hope it’s unabashedly for kids. I get really tired of children’s properties being “matured up.” It could go either way from that trailer.

It's already more mature looking by a mile in terms of violence, but then again the 2012 TMNT show was "for kids" and it has some of the most fucked up imagery I've ever seen in a kids show (that wasn't from Japan).

I'm not sure if Kevin Smith is writing, directing, or just producing, but this show is a direct sequel to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe from 1983-85.

I need to see if the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is available for streaming anywhere. I remember watching it as a kid, but don't remember the plot details. I wish they were doing a sequel / continuation of the 2002 show instead.

I recall in the Netflix series “the Toys That Made Us” they said the comic or original story to go out with the toys were much darker than the cartoon show that was made later to sell the toys. 
 

so maybe this could be seen as “going back to the source material”. ;)

Yeah I feel like I have to rewatch that when this comes out to get the full story properly.

There was no overarching narrative - the series was entirely episodic.

 

"Skeletor wants to conquer Castle Grayskull because that will turn him into a Master of the Universe.  The end."

 

That's the entirety of the plot.

Watch the "Power of Greyskull" documentary on Netflix. The original comics they did that came with toys were all different :lol: They HAD no story when they came up with action figures. The entire lore that we've come to know was created by the cartoon.

 

 

 

This is a GREAT documentary and perfect to get you ready for the new series.

I believe (from that show) that when they first were designing the toys they were for the Conan movie... then when they actually saw the movie they realized it was way too hard R to use it to sell toys.  

 

The best bit is how they came up with battle cat.  Literally they ran out of money so they reused a tiger toy from another line - and since it was too big for the he-man characters they just threw a saddle on it.
