Following on from the previously announced “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” from Kevin Smith, Netflix and Mattel Television have announced a new He-Man reboot series that will “reimagine the Masters of the Universe classic tale with all-new storylines and a fresh take on the iconic characters”. The new “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” series is being produced by Mattel Television with Adam Bonnett (“Descendants”), Christopher Keenan (“Batman Beyond”), and Rob David (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) serving as executive producers. Animation for the series will come from House of Cool and Trollhunters’ CGCG.
On the planet of Eternia, a young lost prince discovers the powers of Grayskull and transforms into He-Man, Master of the Universe! The classic battle between He-Man and evil Skeletor rages to new heights as both hero and villain forge new and mighty teams. A new generation of heroes fighting for the fate of us all. In the end, who will become MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE?
A new line of toys will hit the shelves in Autumn (Fall) of 2020 so we are making an assumption that the new series will launch around that time. For a potted history of the original 80s He-Man series and toys then check out “The Toys That Made Us” on Netflix globally.
