Release date and how to watch
'Masters of the Universe: Revelation' Part One debuts on Netflix on July 23. The streaming site will drop all five episodes at one go.
The official synopsis reads: "The war for Eternia culminates in 'Masters of the Universe: Revelation,' an innovative and action-packed animated series that picks up where the iconic characters left off decades ago. After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe."
Along with previously announced cast - Prince Adam/ He-Man (Chris Wood), Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Skeletor (Mark Hamill), Lena Headey (Evil-Lyn), Alicia Silverstone (Queen Marlena), Henry Rollins (Tri-Klops), Steven Root (Battle Cat), Griffin Newman (Orko), Justin Long (Roboto), and Jason Mewes (Stinkor) - the creators have revealed three additions to the cast - Dennis Haysbert (King Grayskull), Adam Gifford (Vikor), and Jay Tavare (Wundar).
"We’re playing with the original mythology and characters, and revisiting and digging deeper into some of the unresolved storylines. Visually we also made the conscious decision to lean into the Masters of the Universe line of toys for inspiration as well," Smith had said and added that the series is such that those who have not watched the OG series can jump right into the story.
Along with the five-part series, Netflix will also debut 'Revelations: The Master of the Universe Revelation Aftershow'. It stars Smith and Rob David, Vice President, Content Creative, Mattel Television.
The official trailer digs deeper into the problems of Eternia and how the band of heroes must reunite to save the universe one last time. In less than 12 hours the clip has clocked over a million views and 43K plus comments on YouTube.
