Looks like Netflix and Mattel Television are producing another original animated adventure series based on He-Man currently dubbed He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
Deadline reports the CG series will be a companion for Kevin Smith’s 2D anime series Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
The logline goes like this:
“On the planet of Eternia, a young lost prince discovers the powers of Grayskull and transforms into He-Man, Master of the Universe! The classic battle between He-Man and evil Skeletor rages to new heights as both hero and villain forge new and mighty teams. A new generation of heroes fighting for the fate of us all. In the end, who will become Master of the Universe?“
Fred Soulie, Mattel’s Senior Vice President of Content Distribution/Business Development says: “The series will “strive for a contemporary appeal that also satisfies longtime fans of the sword-and-sorcery exploits of characters such as Extendar, Man-At-Arms, Battle Cat and Roboto.“
He adds: “Masters of the Universe is one of the most iconic global franchises of all time, with a 30-year history and a passionate fan base. The entire team at Mattel is excited to introduce the world of He-Man to a new generation and, together with the talented team at Netflix, to reimagine the classic characters in a way that appeals to kids and families today, while also resonating with the fans who grew up with them.”
Mattel Television produces the series which is developed for TV by Rob David.
Jeff Matsuda (TMNT) and Susan Corbin (Voltron) will also produce while Adam Bonnett (Descendants), Christopher Keenan (Batman Beyond), and Rob David (Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) are serving as executive producers.
Bryan Q Miller (Arrow, Smallville, Sleepy Hollow) will serve as the show’s story editor while House of Cool and CGCG (Trollhunters) will provide animation services.
