As I’ve been extremely vocal about the new Snake Eyes movie and how excited I am for it, changes and all, it’s time to talk about another creation that’s tapping into my inner child. I’m talking of course of the new Netflix animated series Masters of the Universe Revelation from Kevin Smith no less. This newest lol debuted a few days ago but I’ve been on vacation so if you haven’t seen it yet, by all means watch it and if you have seen it, watch it again!
The new series looks more adult oriented and while I’m sure there’ll be differences between this one and the original 80’s cartoon, I’m still on board. Once again let me stress that I’m a colossal fanboy but one that doesn’t go overboard and can accept change in the source material if it’s done right.
Well, we have a new trailer for the series which hits the right action notes like the first teaser but now focuses a little more on the plot. The plot centers on Eternia the first planet on all of creation and it is dying and losing its magic. Unfortunately if Eternia goes, so does the rest of the universe.
The cast is all-star as it includes Prince Adam (Chris Wood), Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar), and the one and only Mark Hamill as Skeletor. Other voice talents include Dennis Haysbert (King Grayskull), Adam Gifford (Vikor), and Jay Tavare (Wundar). Lena Headey (Evil-Lyn), AliciaSilverstone (Queen Marlena), Henry Rollins (Tri-Klops), Steven Root (Battle Cat), Griffin Newman (Orko), Justin Long (Roboto), and Jason Mewes (Stinkor).This is a pretty stacked voice cast to serve up the nostalgic fantasy adventure.
Check out the new trailer below which features Prince Adam transforming into He-Man! By all means, be sure to check out the after 25 minute after show Revelations: The Master of the Universe Revelation Aftershow, that’ll debut after every episode hosted by Kevin Smith and featuring appearances from the cast.
The five episode 1st season of Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part One debuts on Netflix on July 23. Peek at the new trailer below!
