The war for Eternia culminates in Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part 1
Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation has officially revealed first-look images and an official release date getting fans old and new, excited for the upcoming animated series. Kevin Smith who is the series showrunner and executive producer also sat down with Netflix in order to discuss what fans can expect from Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part 1:
Narratively our show is set up as the next episode in the legacy ‘80s animated series that aired from 1983-1985. This is a continuation of that story. 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. Mattel owns this entire vast library of that artwork, so right away we wanted the show to open with classic pieces of that artwork. Mattel has been committed to this look since they first started as a toy line in the ’80s, and now we’re leaning into it and honoring it.Source: Netflix
