The first look at Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation series for Netflix has been revealed.
Although She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has been a hit among audiences on Netflix recently, it’s been a while since audiences have seen a brand new version of Masters of the Universe on their screens. And it may be some time before the live-action arrives in theaters too, since the project recently lost Noah Centineo as the titular hero. But fan-favorite director Kevin Smith has been working away on a brand new animated sequel series to the original 1983 program, with Masters of the Universe: Revelation set to arrive on Netflix in just a few months time. But the first stills from the series have finally arrived online, and it looks pretty impressive.
The new look at Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation comes from Entertainment Weekly, and although it keeps distinct character designs from the original series it’s been given a slick, modern revamp. Smith explained to the publication that Revelation won’t just focus on fights between He-Man and archenemy Skeletor, but will dive into much deeper themes.
“We get to see them engage not just in clashing swords, but in far deeper conversations than we’ve ever seen them before,” he explains. “It’s not just simply like these two dudes [He-Man and Skeletor] have been trying to beat each other up for decades. We get to tell stories of abuse. We get to kind of tell stories of isolation, grief. We use these characters as long as they’ve been around — and most people consider them toys or action figures — to tell insanely human stories set in a very inhuman world.”
