Hope you haven’t thrown away your He-Man figures. New Jersey director and executive producer Kevin Smith has announced that he will bring the popular Masters of the Universe animated series back to Netflix as a series.
According to Smith, the Netflix series will pick up where it left off in the ’80s with He-Man in conflict with his nemesis Skeletor!
In what I think was a brilliant marketing stunt, Mattel, the toy maker who made the He-Man figures, is also co-producing the series by loaning more merchandise for the famous series.
Smith, who is from the Highlands, New Jersey, is not only an avid He-Man, he takes his role as the show’s new curator very seriously and with great care. He wants to provide the integrity behind the He-Man nickname.
Masters of the Universe: Revelation premieres on Netflix on July 23, which is the first of five parts.
The voice actors involved in the production of He-Man are Chris Wood who plays He-Man, Mark Hammil for Skeletor, Sarah Michelle Gellar for Teela and Alicia Silverstone for Queen Marlena. It’s a great group of talented actors.
As you saw Kevin Smith announce in the video above, the musical score will be performed by composer Bear McCreary of The Walking Dead and Battlestar Galactica.
This is a great opportunity to share your favorite animated series with your kids. Enjoy Masters of the Universe: Revelation on July 23!
