After a revelatory debut over the summer, Netflix has revealed the date for the return of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Kevin Smith’s groundbreaking reinvention of the He-Man mythos! When we last left the show, the balance of power on Eternia was forever transformed. Spoilers after the jump.
To show Smith and the writers were not messing around, Part One of MOTU: Revelations proved that the creative team was unafraid to take risks with this modern interpretation of the classic ’80s cartoon. After a journey in which former rivals joined forces to bring magic back to the world, the series’ shocking cliffhanger allowed Skeletor to do something he was unable to do for four decades: kill He-Man and claim the Power Sword for himself!
Well, the promotional material for Part Two is leaning heavily into that story development. Check out the key art for Part Two below:
With the Power of Grayskull behind him, Skeletor is now Skelegod and all of Eternia is threatened by his return. But if He-Man is dead, who’s the axe-wielding blonde in the bottom corner of the poster? Fortunately, Mattel is not bound by spoilers — which was true for Part One when they revealed a Skelegod figure ahead of the series’ debut — and we know how He-Man makes his return from the dead.
As part of the continuing Masterverse line, Mattel revealed a special two-pack of Savage He-Man and Orko (who also perished in Part One) that will release some time in 2022.
Here’s the official synopsis for Part Two: The war for Eternia continues in the second part of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an innovative and action-packed animated series that picks up where the iconic characters left off. With Skeletor now wielding the Sword of Power, the weary heroes of Eternia must band together to fight back against the forces of evil in a thrilling and epic conclusion to the two-part series.
Part two of Masters of the Universe: Revelation starts streaming on Netflix on November 23.
