Masters of the Universe Revelation Updates: The Netflix original “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” will be launched by the streaming provider in July. Rumor has it that He-Man hasn’t been around for long.

“Masters of the Universe: Revelation” is a reboot of the animated series “He-Man” from the 1980s. The Netflix Original will be released on July 23, 2021 by the streaming giant and is the sequel to the original series. In “Revelation” there should be the final fight between He-Man and Skeletor – or at least between him and the Masters of the Universe. Rumor has it that He-Man has not been around for long in his own reboot. “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” without He-Man – would that be possible?

Masters of the Universe: Revelation – Will the He-Man Remake be on TV?

The original series “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”, which was published in Germany under the title “He-Man – In the Valley of Power”, was broadcast in 1983 and 1984 by Syndication. “The New Adventures of He-Man” was shown in 1990. From 2002 to 2004 “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” followed as a new edition of the original series. The series aired on Cartoon Network in the United States. In Germany, she could be seen on RTL Zwei. Netflix has been planning a new edition of the series since 2019.

The He-Man reboot “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” will not be shown on TV in this country. Since it is a Netflix original, it is available to customers of the service for free.

Where is streaming Masters of the Universe: Revelation?

Since “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” is a Netflix series, it can only be seen there. Amazon Prime, Disney +, and other streaming services will not show the new He-man edition.

The Reboot: Plot

Even in the reboot, Prince Adams as He-Man defends his kingdom against Skeletor and his troops. Producer and comic book writer Kevin Smith told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s not just that these two guys [He-Man and Skeletor] have been trying to beat each other up for decades. We’re going to tell stories of isolation and grief.”

Smith also said, “We’ve been using these characters for as long as they exist – and most people think they’re toys or action figures – to tell insanely human stories set in a very inhuman world.”

Now there are indications that Prince Adam alias He-Man in “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” may not survive long. In contrast to the original series or the 2002 reboot of “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”, He-Man’s name is missing from the title “Masters of the Universe: Revelation”.

Instead of Teela, captain of the royal guard of Eternos, the Master of the Universe is supposed to lead the battle against Skeletor. Teela trained and protected the young Prince Adam without knowing his identity as a He-Man. Prince Adam and with it He-Man’s death would be a dramatic introduction to the Netflix original. However, whether this will really happen remains to be seen until the start of the series in July.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation: Who is the action hero He-Man?

Masters of the Universe Netflix Release Date

He-Man is an alter ego of Prince Adam, son of King Randor and Queen Marlena. He lives in the kingdom of Eternia and defends it against Skeletor and his troops. It is based on the character of the same name in the action figure series Masters of the Universe, which was distributed worldwide by Mattel in the 1980s.

Sorceress, the sorceress of Grayskull Castle, gave Adam the ability to transform into He-Man. To complete the transformation, he holds his sword in the air and shouts: “By the power of Grayskull, I have the power!” He-Man can also communicate telepathically with the sorceress.

He-Man can swim faster than anyone and is very strong. In the intro sequence of the 80s cartoon series, he is referred to as the “strongest man in the universe”.

In the comic “Princess of Power” He-Man gets a sister named Adora / She-Ra. He rescues her from the clutches of the Horde and helps her in the rebellion.

She-Ra also received an animated film series with 93 episodes in 1985 and 1986 with “She-Ra: Princess of Power / She-Ra – Princess of Power”. With ” She-Ra and the rebel princesses ” a new edition of the series is available since 2018 on Netflix.

The name of He-Man’s Tiger is Cringer. He is Prince Adam’s fearful, green pet. Whenever Adam transforms into He-Man, he transforms Cringer into the fearless and armored Battle Cat. This serves He-Man both as a mount and a combat companion.

 Characters, Figures, and Synchronization

The following characters and figures appear in the remake of He-Man: Orko, Andra, Teela, Roboto, Evil-Lyn, and Skeletor.

In the English original, the series has top-class speakers. We hear Mark Hamill (“Star Wars“) as Skeletor, Lena Headey from ” Game of Thrones ” as Evil-Lyn, Sarah Michelle Gellar (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as Teela, “Clueless” star Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, “Batman” spokesman Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man and the original voice of Skeletor, Alan Oppenheimer, in the role of Moss Man.

Revelation: Production

Producer and screenwriter Kevin Smith (“Jay and Silent Bob” from 2019) is responsible for the reboot on Netflix. Masters of the Universe: Revelation screenwriters Marc Bernardin, Eric Carrasco, Diya Mishra, and Tim Sheridan. Executive Produces are Mattel Televisions Frederic Soulie, Adam Bonnett, Christopher Keenan, and Rob David. In 1987 a real-life feature film was shot with the title “Masters of the Universe”. The main role was played by Dolph Lundgren.

In the spirit of ” She-Ra and the rebel princesses “, Kevin Smith could now also give “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” a feminist twist by promoting Teela to protagonist. You will probably not find out until July 23, 2021, whether the reboot is also about female power.
