He-Man, Skeletor, and all the other well-known characters from the classic animated series from the 80s are back in the second part of the first season of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, for which Netflix released the official trailer today.
Animated show, described as a sequel of the classic animated series that was airing from 1983 to 1985, debuted last July with the first five episodes, and the first season will conclude on November 23 with another five episodes.
Although the movie is described as a sequel, it can also be described as a reimagining of the franchise to get it closer to the new generation of potential fans who know little or nothing about He-Man, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Teela, and all the other classic characters.
When the show premiered last July, it received generally favorable reviews according to Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, but fans weren’t so much thrilled considering it holds only a 5.1 rating on IMDb and only 39% of the audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Starring Chris Wood as He-Man and Mark Hamill as Skeletor, all-new five episodes will premiere on Netflix on November 23. Until then, you can check the official trailer down below:
