Kevin Smith, the popular Hollywood film maker is going to serve as a show runner and executive producer for an upcoming series He-Man anime.
By the power of Greyskull, the filmmaker Kevin Smith is soon going to bring the new He-Man anime series to Netflix. Titled as “Masters of the Universe: Revelation”, the series will be focusing on the unresolved storylines of the 1980s and will be starting up from where they left off the journeys of most of the characters decades ago.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, Smith will be serving as the show runner and the executive producer for the series described as “a wholly original story set in the epic world of Mattel’s over 35-year-old global He-Man toy franchise”.
Talking on the same, Smith said, “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 telling an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! This is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid.”
The limited series is going to be produced by Mattel Television, along with Rob David, VP at Mattel TV and author of “He-Man: The Eternity War” attached to executive production.
Eric Carrasco, Tim Sheridan, Diya Mishra and Marc Bernardin have been taken on board as the writers, with animation by Powerhouse Animation.
The series is expected to be a show stopper for all the He-Man fans!
