The primary clip from Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe sequence (as at all times, to not be confused with Kevin Smith’s latest sequence Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which is middle-aged nerd-targeted) has arrived! It appears advantageous! It additionally appears like many, many different fashionable children’ cartoons! Which can also be advantageous!
Critically, in case you’re up in your latest CG-animated children cartoons, reminiscent of Lego Ninjago, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous, and so forth., He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is clearly going for his or her tone and elegance. Based mostly on the clip, I’d say it has totally succeeded.
Now, whether or not you assume He-Man and Battle Cat’s try and run squarely in the midst of the pack with all these different sequence is nice or unhealthy, you need to admit two issues: 1) these exhibits are profitable as a result of they’re what children need in 2021, and aping them is a brilliant transfer for a franchise dreamed up 40 years in the past; and a pair of) it completely doesn’t matter what you consider the sequence except you’re an eight-year-old, wherein case you most likely shouldn’t be studying io9. We use cusswords typically.
Ahem. Watching this clip, it has dawned on me that I don’t know who a few of these characters are. Prince Adam and Evil-Lyn are apparent, in fact, however the others? I assume the lady with the white hair is Teela, provided that within the first trailer she will get a psychic message from the Sorceress (longtime followers know of their connection) and she or he’s seen holding a workers that appears not not like the weapon that got here with the unique Teela motion determine again in 1982. As for the inexperienced unhealthy man with Evil-Lyn, I don’t know. He’s clearly some form of snake man, which might lead me to imagine he’s one of many Snake Males, besides none of these characters are listed on IMDB. There are two names that look like newly created for the sequence, R’Qazz and Normal Dolos, that I undoubtedly have no idea, so it’s presumably one in all them.
All in all, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe appears like a superbly advantageous factor to let your children binge, and it might intrigue them sufficient to need to know extra in regards to the authentic He-Man. Then you’ll be able to present them the Nineteen Eighties He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon, and listen to them beg you to show it off as a result of it’s so poorly animating and insultingly silly, even for eight-year-olds.
Which is ok!
