Netflix has dropped an official teaser for its upcoming animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation. While the minute-long promo video doesn’t give away any major plot details, it does send the message that the new series is going to be packed with action and magic.
The teaser finds Skeletor (Mark Hamill) attempting to take over Castle Grayskull once again. But Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar) isn’t making it easy for him, saying: “Time after time you try to take this castle, but you will never succeed.”
The video then shows quick snippets of action scenes from the series, including Man-At-Arms (Lian Cunningham) punching Trap Jaw (Diedrich Bader); Teela and Evil-Lyn (Lena Headey) having a faceoff; and Skeletor and He-Man (Chris Wood) fighting for their lives in yet another showdown.
Set to Bonnie Tyler’s hit song Holding Out for a Hero, the teaser also features several supporting characters appearing in the series. These include Scare Glow (Tony Todd), Beast Man (Kevin Michael Richardson), Mer-Man (Kevin Conroy), Cringer (Stephen Root), Roboto (Justin Long), Tri-Klops (Henry Rollins), and Orko (Griffin Newman), among many others.
Developed by Kevin Smith and produced by Powerhouse Animation Studios, Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a sequel to the 1983–1985 Filmation series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
“After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered,” reads the official synopsis. “And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe.”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation is set to be released in two parts, with the five-episode Part 1 set to debut on Netflix on July 23rd. An aftershow will also premiere on the same day, with Smith, executive producer Rob David, and voice actress Tiffany Smith all confirmed to appear as guests.
As announced last April, Mattel and Dark Horse Comics are also releasing a four-edition Masters of the Universe: Revelation comic to go with the series. The first edition is set to drop on July 7th.
