Watch: Trailer for Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
James R | On 21, Aug 2021
Netflix is bringing back He-Man for a second time this September for a new animated series – and a trailer gives us a first look at the more traditional show in action.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe sees He-Man and his powerful friends learn what it means to be a hero while battling the evil forces of Skeletor and his minions. On Eternia, the first planet of creation, a demonic tyrant rises: Skeletor! With dark armies at his command, Skeletor is on the march, hell-bent on capturing Eternia’s kingdoms, and its ultimate prize – Castle Grayskull, the ancient fortress of mystery said to contain the greatest power in the universe. It’s up to He-Man and his brave squad of rookie heroes to stop Skeletor and restore the peace. Both sides come armed with enchanted Power Weapons – transforming them into Masters of the Primal Powers of the Universe. It’s Master vs. Dark Master, He-Man vs. Skeletor – fighting for control of Eternia, Castle Grayskull, and the fate of us all. In the end, who will become Master of the Universe?
Find out on 16th September, when the reboot arrives – with a much more family-friendly approach than Netflix’s recent He-Man series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.

Set on the planet of Eternia, it sees a young lost prince discover the powers of Grayskull and transform into He-Man, Master of the Universe! The classic battle between He-Man and evil Skeletor will rage to new heights as both hero and villain forge new and mighty teams. A new generation of heroes fighting for the fate of us all. In the end, who will become Master of the Universe?
“Masters of the Universe is one of the most iconic global franchises of all time, with a 30-year history and a passionate fan base. The entire team at Mattel is excited to introduce the world of He-Man to a new generation and, together with the talented team at Netflix, to reimagine the classic characters in a way that appeals to kids and families today, while also resonating with the fans who grew up with them,” says Fred Soulie, Senior Vice President of Content Distribution and Business Development, Mattel.
