In Revelation, we pick up right where the classic era left off telling an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! ... This is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!," Smith said in a statement.
The golden yet limited series is produced by Mattel Television, with Rob David, at Mattel TV and author of 'He-Man: The Eternity War,' working as an executive producer of the series.
Eric Carrasco, Tim Sheridan, Diya Mishra, and Marc Bernardin are penning the script, with animation being handled by Powerhouse Animation.
