‘MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE’ ANIME SERIES COMING FROM KEVIN SMITH AND NETFLIX





I can’t say that I usually have much interest in what Kevin Smith [the person who thinks there should be even more superhero movies] says or does these days, but this could be interesting. Alongside Sony’s new live-action Masters Of The Universe that stars Noah Centineo as He-Man, the role previously inhabited by Dolph Lundgren, there will now also be an anime series from Netflix and Kevin Smith that will serve as a sequel to the original 1983 – 1985 animated series and promises to focus on some of its unresolved story lines. It will be called Masters of the Universe: Revelation, with Smith as serving as showrunner on the series and co-executive producer.

Smith had this to say about the project at Power-Con:

“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe. In ‘Revelation,’ we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”

This is all very well, but what I want to know is….what’s happening with that proposed Thundercats movie? We haven’t heard anything more about it for ages!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
