He-Man is getting the short end of the stick.
Netflix has released the trailer for the new CGI He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series, which doesn’t look much better than the recent Kevin Smith disaster of a show.
Similar to the Kevin Smith “Revelations” series, this series seems to focus more on a female character more than He-Man, and instead of “I have the power!” it’s “We have the power!”
It blows my mind that Mattel greenlit this stuff while trying to sell more toys and I feel bad for today’s youth that their cartoons are utter garbage.
We also see this CGI series is produced by Rob David who was behind the Smith series and the DC comics that are a joke. Makes sense.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe premiers on Netflix on Sept. 16.
The CG animated series will reimagine the Masters of the Universe classic tale with all-new storylines and a fresh take on the iconic characters.
This marks the second collaboration between Netflix and Mattel Television, joining the previously announced 2D anime series Masters of the Universe: Revelation with Kevin Smith.
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?
The series is being produced by Mattel Television with Adam Bonnett (Descendants), Christopher Keenan (Justice League, Batman Beyond), and Rob David (Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) serving as executive producers. The series was developed for television by Rob David.
Emmy-winning producer and designer Jeff Matsuda (The Batman, TMNT) and Susan Corbin (Voltron) will also produce.
Bryan Q. Miller (Arrow, Smallville, Sleepy Hollow) will serve as story editor on the series.
Animation services are being provided by House of Cool and CGCG (Trollhunters).
