Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part 1 turned out to be surprisingly controversial, with showrunner Kevin Smith admitting that every one the negativity about it on-line was “heartbreaking”. The just-released Part 2 appears to have gone down quite a bit higher, nevertheless. With a stronger concentrate on Prince Adam and Skeletor, it delivered way more of what viewers have been hoping for. And it additionally teased much more fan-pleasing developments to return within the second season.
Spoilers for Part 2 incoming… Having escaped Castle Grayskull, Skeletor (Mark Hamill) sought out his former minions who had defected to a cybernetic being referred to as Motherboard. Skeletor taunted the Motherboard effigy which reached out its tendrils and started changing him into its cyborg slave. As the method accomplished, Motherboard displayed a hologram of a well-recognized face: Hordak, the nemesis of Prince Adam’s twin sister She-Ra/Princess Adora.
So, clearly Hordak and his Evil Horde will likely be making themselves identified in season 2, however does this imply that She-Ra herself will quickly comply with them from Etheria to Eternia? When requested this query in an interview with Den of Geek, Kevin Smith admitted that the rights points have but to be sorted out, however he will surely like to make this household reunion a actuality.
“The only thing that I’ve been told over and over again is the properties are owned by two different companies,” Smith says. “Masters of the Universe is owned by Mattel. The She-Ra figures are owned by Mattel but (animated) She-Ra is owned by DreamWorks.”
Despite these main roadblocks to a crossover, Smith went on to emphasize that “everyone from Mattel to Netflix would love for it to happen.” He went on to tease that, in a dream world, He-Man and She-Ra would come collectively for a Revelation Christmas particular.
“At the very best case scenario we get it done in time for a Christmas special [next year or later]. That would be amazing.”
If this festive one-off did come to move, it might presumably be a contemporary re-do of the traditional ’80s He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special. A sequel to this corny cartoon Christmas particular achieved within the type of the mature Revelation sounds wild so fingers crossed Mattel and DreamWorks are capable of get collectively to make all of it work out.
In the meantime, do not forget that DreamWorks is at the moment creating a live-action She-Ra series, which isn’t related to Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power animation, for Amazon. The first 10 episodes of Masters of the Universe: Revelation can be found on Netflix now.
