He-Man and Skeletor aren’t the only ones facing off against each other, they’re also fans of the ’80s series with scattered standards.
Recent Animation Series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, whose first season contains five seasons – out of 10 in total – can now be watched on Netflix. It is based on the 80s series and begins with the unresolved stories from the original production i.e. the confrontation of He-Man and Skeletor for Eternia, to once again begin what could be the final battle between the two.
Creator is Kevin Smith (chasing amy, 1997). Narratively, our series was planned to be the next episode of the legendary 80s animated series that aired between 1983 and 1985. It is a continuation of that story. We will play with the original legends and characters, revisit the plots that remain to be resolved.“.
One of the unfinished themes from the original series that lingered in the minds of the ’80s is precisely the last meeting between He-Man and Skeletor. Smith said, “We can see them participating Not only in swordsmanshipBut in much deeper conversations than we’ve seen before. It’s not like these two guys have been trying to hit each other for decades.”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation It began in late 2019, when Smith announced at the then-annual Power-Con that he would be writing the series along with Eric Carrasco, Tim Sheridan, Dia Mishra and co-host of Fatman BeyondMark Bernardan.
At the time, Smith revealed that the current anime remake wouldn’t be far from the original, giving reassurance to fans who were eager to know at least a sketch of this remake. But when you watch it on Netflix, it leaves some nostalgia as the characters have more modern and modern features, which collide with memories of He-Man, Orco, Teela, Duncan, and even Cringer himself, the green tiger in Blond Prince Adam.
The reactions of followers on Google varied: “It’s such a shame that what Kevin Smith has just done with such a great story and a great hero so many of us have grown up with that we’d rather see again after so many years. In this series, He-Man is a weakling with no presence or character, leaving Prince Adam so much worse, without being He’s anything special because he’s a Greyskull sword bearer. The series is really bad and from what I saw in Chapter 5 it’s only going to get worse with more than ‘show From Tila’s Revenge or “Tila’s Revenge”. I’m so sick of them taking the classic stories that made our generation the best for fun and having fun, that they end up making the history mess they want. They change the role of each character…”.
Another fan of the series said, “I really liked it, it respects the essence of the characters and the ambiance of the last year, and gives it a modern touch without changing at all. Excellent that I save the stories of the secondary characters as seen in the vignettes of the stories that came with the dolls.”
In a tweet in August 2020, Smith explained that the updated version, by Powerhouse Animation, It’s a totally different and alluring experience. He praised the history and art of the show. Among the novelties that this new version of Masters of the Universe: Revelation Characters like Scare Glow and He-Ro, from Mattel Games, who never appeared in the original animated series, as well as Lieutenant Andra, who appeared in Star Marvel comics, have been added.
It was broadcast from 1983 to 1985And Under the title He is man and master of the universe (in Latin America). she was Produced by Filmation and based on the Mattel Masters of The Universe collection of games. It had 180 episodes. The original plot was the battle between He-Man and the villain Skeletor, on the planet Eternia. The first must prevent the second from conquering the mysterious castle of Castle Grayskull and will do so thanks to their abilities and powers as well as the help of a series of characters.
On Netflix, the story isn’t far off, after a disastrous battle between He-Man and Skeletor, aimless Eternia and the distraction of Grayskull’s guards.
