Breath was held..
Shock and awe was felt at POWER CON in Anaheim.. JAY AND SILENT BOB creator himself Kevin Smith appeared to drop a bombshell on fans gathered.. and Masters all over the Universe rejoiced..
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE is coming back for a limited series to ‘revolve’ some storylines.. 30 years since the show broke into the pop culture universe of 80s kids, and with SHE-RA already reappearing n the streaming service, this new news is causing similar excitement..
Smith will serve as the executive producer and showrunner ofMasters of the Universe: Revelation, a limited series which focuses on the unresolved storylines of the classic series, picking up many of the characters’ journeys where they left off decades ago.
This from the press release:
“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. “InRevelation, 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!”
Meanwhile, excitement is building over the potential (we say potential because of the number of past chances HE-MAN was going to be a movie) HE-MAN movie..
And this news of an upcoming comic from DC COMICS called HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE..
We can thank in part nostalgia. It’s been good lately. Good for memories of the 80s. And good for business for the UNIVERSE..
