Last week, Netflix dropped the hotly anticipated He-Man sequel Masters of the Universe: Revelation, but is it worth the hype?
For the uninitiated youngins, He-Man was a big thing in the 80s and now he’s returned in a brand new series, ready to bring old and new fans together.
Set on the planet Eternia, Prince Adam (Chris Wood), the son of the ruling family of the realm, uses the Sword of Power for transform into the chiselled He-Man to defend his kingdom. These threats come mainly from his arch nemesis Skeletor (Mark Hamill), Evil-Lyn (Lena Headey), Beast Man (Kevin Michael Richardson) and the vile legions of Snake Mountain. It’s in this battle that Eternia becomes fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull scattered, so it’s up to Adam’s sister Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar) to go on a quest to bring them together again and prevent the end of the universe.
Going beyond the Netflix synopsis would spoil all the fun and surprises that Kevin Smith and the team have in store for fans. But rest assured that this isn’t just a He-Man vs. Skeletor story, it’s one of deception and its many forms.
Featuring an all-star cast, Masters of the Universe: Revelations is perfect for fans young and old, and there’s more on the way, so settle in and take a trip of Eternia.
Masters of the Universe: Revelations is now streaming on Netflix.
