McG’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ Hits Theaters On December 19th, 2019
By the Power of Grayskull! Sony finally announced that ‘Masters of the Universe‘ will be released on December 19th, 2019. The road to the reboot of the He-Man franchise has been long but the path is finally clear. While the film will have competition with both ‘Wicked‘ and live-action Disney film being released that weekend, it could do very well if marketed properly. McG, director of ‘We Are Marshall‘ and ‘Charlie’s Angels‘, recently spoke about plans for this franchise and the future seems very bright.
McG had this to say to ComingSoon.net:
“I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost. We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment. That it’s both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero’s journey. It’s the genesis of He-Man, it’s the becoming of He-Man. We want it to be clicking on all cylinders in that regard. We’re not going to stop until we get it right.”
When it comes to building a cinematic universe, Marvel seems to be the template for studios. Everyone wants to build their own shared film universe and it’s very hit or miss. But this news from McG could also lead to a She-Ra film so count me in! And maybe we’ll finally get to see this Battle Cat.
‘Masters of the Universe‘ will follow Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. He-Man becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by the villainous Skeletor.
What do you think of the upcoming reboot of this 80’s franchised based on a Mattel toy?
