The new Netflix collection Masters of the Universe: Revelation isn’t simply one other reboot of a beloved franchise from again in the day. In truth, it’s not a reboot in any respect! MOTU: Revelation is the actually uncommon SEQUEL collection to an ‘80s animated series. Yes, that’s proper, we aren’t getting He-Man rebooted but once more (remember that time He-Man went into space?) however as an alternative a full-on sequel to the authentic 130-episode Filmation TV collection.
With that in thoughts, how a lot about the authentic He-Man collection is required to get pleasure from MOTU: Revelation? Is this one thing extra casual followers can get pleasure from or do you should be a hardcore He-Man fan? Can a brand new fan leap in right here?
What you should know from the leap is that MOTU: Revelation was made particularly with He-Man followers in thoughts. In truth there may by no means have been a brand new model of a basic property that was made with followers in thoughts fairly this a lot. MOTU: Revelation assumes you already know fairly a bit about He-Man. The present offers a really fast reintroduction to the idea (He-Man being a secret id, only some others know the secret, Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, Skeletor) however after that you simply’re by yourself. This is episode 131 of He-Man for all MOTU: Revelation is worried. If you’re even considerably conscious of He-Man via popular culture although you’ll principally know all of this or have the ability to determine it out fairly rapidly. But is that each one you want? Well, that is the place it will get difficult.
MOTU: Revelation is for followers and that doesn’t simply imply, “what a casual person thinks He-Man was.” This is a present that closely depends on mining the very deep lore of the authentic He-Man. Yes, for as foolish as the authentic He-Man collection may very well be it had a staggering quantity of lore. Much of the plot of MOTU: Revelation hinges on this lore to the level some new viewers could also be turned off.
