Well, it would appear a whole lot of you are liking what you're hearing so far. On Monday, Kevin Smith announced that Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) had been tapped as the composer of Mattel Television and Netflix's animated sequel series Masters of the Universe: Revelation. But that wasn't all, as the streaming service's social media accounts also shared a look-listen of Smith previewing a sample of McCreary's work. And it wasn't just any sample, as fans were treated to how the transformation scene is starting to sound as Chris Wood's (Supergirl, The Vampire Diaries) Prince Adam transforms into He-Man (you can check it out here). And based on the feedback we've received on our end, it sounds like you approve (and that's not even close to the final product).
Now we're hearing from McCreary, reacting to the preview by throwing a ton of appreciation Kevin and the creative team's way for giving him the opportunity to "write the score of my dreams." In a follow-up tweet, McCreary reminds us that what we heard was just an initial mock-up (damn!) and that the final version "is killer":

Yes, that audio is just a demo / sketch I sent to @ThatKevinSmith to see if he liked the concept. This video clip actually marks one of the first times I've ever publicly released a mock-up. The final, with live orch, choir and band, is killer! 🤓🎶 #MastersoftheUniverse #MOTU https://t.co/KscsVholm0
