“Masters of the Universe: Revelation” – Kevin Smith, Netflix to Continue Original Animated Series

Director and “Uber-Geek” Kevin Smith is ready to take fans back to Eternia – and Netflix is joining them to make it happen. At Sunday’s PowerCon, Smith announced that he was spearheading a new “Masters of the Universe” animated series for the streamer: Masters of the Universe: Revelation.

Two things that make this announcement even more exciting: Powerhouse (Castlevania) will be behind the series, and it will not be a reboot or a reimagining. Smith’s series will continue the storylines from the original cartoon.
