While at Anaheim, California's Power-Con on Sunday, Jay & Silent Bob creator Kevin Smith revealed that he will be bringing He-Man back to life at Netflix. Masters of the Universe: Revelation is set to continue the unresolved storylines of the 1980s classic Mattel toy era cartoon, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
"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," said Smith. "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!"
Kevin Smith is onboard as executive producer and showrunner of Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Writers include Eric Carrasco (Supergirl), Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen), Diya Mishra (Magic the Gathering) and Marc Bernardin (Alphas).
While we all wait for the Master of the Universe reboot to get out of what seems to be development hell over at Sony, new He-Man storylines will no doubt be welcomed with open arms by legions of fans. In 2018, Netflix brought She-Ra and the Princesses of Power back to life in a more kid-friendly adaptation of the classic He-Man spin-off. Now ramping up to its third season, Netflix is officially doubling down on its dedication to the creatures of Eternia. Masters of the Universe: Revelation will add to Netflix's growing slate of anime adaptations which currently include Castlevania, Devilman Crybaby, Aggretsuko and Ultraman.
