Netflix & Mattel to Return to Grayskull With New Animated Series

Netflix and Mattel Television are producing He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, an original CG animated adventure series that will reimagine the popular Reagan Era toy-based franchise with a fresh take on its fantasy heroes.

The CG animation undertaking will be a brand companion for Netflix’s previously announced Mattel partnership on the 2D anime series Masters of the Universe: Revelation from filmmaker Kevin Smith

The logline: “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?”

Mattel’s reboot of the classic Masters of the Universe franchise also includes a comic book series by DC Comics, an upcoming feature film, and a reimagining of the 1980s toyline that hits retail shelves in Fall 2020.

And — AND — a new poster!
