By the Power of Grayskull! Netflix, Mattel Team for ‘He-Man’ Anime

During a panel at Power-Con earlier this week, director Kevin Smith announced a new Netflix anime series based on Mattel’s “He-Man” character.

Titled “Masters of the Universe: Revelation,” the new streaming show will be a direct continuation of the original ‘80s series. Smith will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Mattel Television taking on production duties, and Powerhouse Animation penning the series.

“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,” says Smith, according to


. “In ‘Revelation,’ we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor. Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame; this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”

Since debuting in the 1980s, “He-Man” has seen a pop-culture revival in recent years.

Mattel recently leveraged the character for

commercials in the U.K.

and is working on a live-action reboot of “He-Man” for a theatrical release.
