By the power of Grayskull! Super7, the group behind M.U.S.C.L.E. and Super Shogun have gone into the cartoon business. They have produced the first episode of the original He-Man And The Masters of The Universe series in 30 years and have set for it to release at San Diego Comic Con on July 20th at 10:00pm PST.
The episode, The Curse of the Three Terrors, looks to be made in with more modern animation but still retains the feel of the original series. The studio also got Skeletor’s original voice actor, Alan Oppenheimer, the veteran behind such beloved characters as Vanity Smurf from the Smurfs and the Rockbitter from The Neverending Story to reprise his role. This production looks to be filled with a lot of nostalgic gold for people who enjoy classic cartoons.
There have been two previous attempts to reboot the franchise. The first was The New Adventures of He-Man in 1990 which is often forgotten by fans. The second, bore the same title (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) and was well received by fans and thought to be cancelled too soon. This new episode is placed in the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon from 1983. and is intended to be watched as if three decades haven’t passed since the last episode aired.
The trailer for the new episode can be seen below. Will this be the first of many new episodes of Super7? Will the The Curse of the Three Terrors steal the show at SDCC? Will this be the gateway for a new breed of He-Man fans? Tune to Monkeys Fighting Robots for all these answers and more.
