Kevin Smith's version is spiritually close to the original 80s. Mainly the revival you expect-including almost indispensable toys. Master of the Universe: Apocalypse is now scheduled to premiere on July 23. It will provide a new look, retain the style of the 1980s shows, and provide a more "grounded and authentic" beauty. This is actually the series you saw in your mind when you were a kid.

Smith also wasn't kidding when he talked about Revelation picking up where the original series left off, although it won't just be a simple continuation. It starts with a climactic fight that leaves the Guardians of Grayskull scattered to the winds, and the creators are promising that characters like He-Man, Teela and Orko will change over time. The show has grown up a bit over the years, in other words.

The cast is unsurprisingly well-known. Supergirl's Chris Wood plays He-Man. You can also expect Buffy's Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Game of Thrones' Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, and Mark Hamill as Skeletor. And yes, the producers managed to rope in an original voice actor. Alan Oppenheimer, who voicedSkeletor and other characters in the first series, is coming back as Moss Man.

Netflix's Mattel

Mattel's action figures, due on June 15th, also reflect that mix of old and new. The basic designs in the Masterverse collection will be more than a little familiar if you played with the original toys as a kid, but they'll both match the updated visuals and sport much more advanced 30-point articulation. While pricing wasn't available as we wrote this, there will be a "core assortment" of seven-inch figures that includes He-Man, Skeletor, Moss Man and Evil-Lyn. A nine-inch Skelegod promises to be intimidating, and a 14-inch Ultimate Battle Cat turns into Cringer when you remove the armor.

It is unclear whether "Revelation" will be popular. However, She-Ra has done a good job for Netflix, and there is a factor between respecting originality and participating talent. Matching action figures may also help. Although Netflix has had action dolls before, they are usually in response to popular shows rather than making their debut with it.
