No, you're not seeing double. On one part of the streaming landscape we call Netflix, we have Kevin Smith's excellent animated epic series Masters of the Universe: Revelation. This is that other "He-Man" series that Netflix has heading viewers' way, with the CG-animated He-Man and the Masters of the Universe ready to hit streaming screens in a big way on September 16. But one thing that the two projects do have in common? Both projects are taking what fans thought they knew about the MOTU-verse and offering fascinating new takes that make each series feel as if they matter and are relevant to modern audiences- as you're about to see in the following trailer, but we're kicking things off with some preview images:
With He-Man and the Masters of the Universe set to be unleashed on September 16, here's a look at the official trailer (followed by a look at the official series overview) where He-Man and his powerful friends learn what it means to be a hero while battling the evil forces of Skeletor and his minions:
On Eternia, the first planet of creation, a demonic tyrant rises: Skeletor! With dark armies at his command, Skeletor is on the march, hell-bent on capturing Eternia's kingdoms, and its ultimate prize – Castle Grayskull, the ancient fortress of mystery said to contain the greatest power in the universe. It's up to He-Man and his brave squad of rookie heroes to stop Skeletor and restore the peace. Both sides come armed with enchanted Power Weapons – transforming them into Masters of the Primal Powers of the Universe. It's Master vs. Dark Master, He-Man vs. Skeletor – fighting for control of Eternia, Castle Grayskull, and the fate of us all. In the end, who will become MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE?
