“Behold… the Lord of Destruction!” Netflix has released an official trailer for their animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, directed by Kevin Smith. We’ve been waiting a long time for the live-action movie, which may or may not ever be released, but until then – check out this fresh anime update on the classic fantasy story. The war for Eternia begins again in what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor. After decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia to its glory. Will the Guardians of Grayskull save Eternia and the fate of the entire Universe? Featuring the voices of Chris Wood as He-Man, Dennis Haysbert as Grayskull, Mark Hamill as Skeletor (oh hell yes!), plus Sarah Michelle Gellar, Adam Gifford, Jay Tavare, Diedrich Bader, Liam Cunningham, Lena Headey, Phil LaMarr, Jason Mewes, and Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man. This looks like a good time; flashy stoner animation and gnarly fantasy action. The end is only the beginning. Check out the first look footage below.
