Masters of the Universe movie on Netflix

Mattel Films and Netflix are producing a new live-action Masters of the Universe movie starring Kyle Allen (West Side Story) as He-Man. Mattel Films was previously developing a reboot with Sony Pictures.

Read the official synopsis:

"In Masters of the Universe, an orphan named Adam discovers he is a prince destined to be the savior of a faraway land and must quickly learn of his power and the importance of saving his true home from an evil force."

Mattel's Masters of the Universe was a monster hit in the 1980s, spawning an animated series and a live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren as the heroic He-Man and Frank Langella as his nemesis, Skeletor. Whilst the film bombed at the box office, it became a cult favourite on home video.

Netflix has become the home of all things Masters of the Universe beginning with She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. This was followed by Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a continuation of the original classic series, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Both animated series have toy lines (affiliate link).

“Masters of the Universe is an iconic property that shaped the imaginations of an entire generation of kids with the message of becoming the best version of yourself,” says Robbie Brenner, executive producer of Mattel Films. “With our partners at Netflix, we look forward to showing audiences that anything can happen in Eternia. We are continuing to unlock this global franchise in new ways, and we can’t wait to see Kyle battle it out with Skeletor in this epic live-action saga.”
