He-Man and Battle Cat not only got new designs, but new voices as well with Chris Wood taking on Adam and Stephen Root is the voice behind Cringer. If you wanted to check it out for yourself, Masters of the Universe: Revelation‘s first five episodes are now streaming on Netflix. ComicBook.com’s Evan Valentine reviewed the series (which you can find here). Stating the following about its debut:
“Smith and company really dive headfirst into the history of Eternia with this new series, exploring a lot of territories that are sure to satiate die-hard fans while also helping to bring in new viewers…At its heart, Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a love letter to the world of Eternia from Kevin Smith and crew, and it’s one that’s most assuredly worth reading.”
