Smith (Clerks) previously stated, “Our series is set up as the next installment in the heritage ’80s cartoon series that ran from 1983-1985.” “This is the next chapter in that narrative. We’re revisiting and delving further into some of the unsolved tales, as well as toying with the original mythos and characters. Visually, we took the intentional decision to draw influence from the Masters of the Universe line of toys. Growing up, I watched every single TV show since it was so popular in the 1980s.
These characters began as toys and have now been ingrained in the fabric of worldwide pop culture. The passion and care for this universe at every level of production, as well as the fans around this series, has made so much of this show possible. People truly want to be a part of this universe, which is one of the reasons we have such top-tier voice talent. So many of us were moved by these stories and characters as children, and we were thrilled to return to Eternia. You can get
into the plot even if you’ve never seen a single episode of the series or are unfamiliar with the world. It’s a timeless action-adventure epic about personal growth, discovery, magic, and power. This series takes a unique approach to fate. There’s a lot of reconciling to be done with secrets, betrayal, trust, acceptance, love, and loss.”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation series premieres on July 23 on Netflix.
