When Masters of the Universe: Revelation premiered on Netflix again in 2021, it turned out to be…really not half unhealthy. As a substitute of being a simple dip into the nostalgia nicely prefer it initially gave the impression of, the present was a fun, if flawed, return to the canon of the 1983 series that had grown with its viewers and brought some fascinating swings. And naturally, it wasn’t actually the top a lot because it was a brand new starting, which goes to proceed with the sequel sequence, Masters of the Universe: Revolution.
The Lady Who Would Be Photon
Netflix and showrunner Kevin Smith have been pretty mum on Revolution ever for the reason that follow-up’s announcement final 12 months. However the streamer introduced a brand new solid addition within the type of Meg Foster, who performed Evil-Lyn within the 1987 Masters film starring Dolph Lundgren. She’s readily available to voice the function of Motherboard within the upcoming present, and described within the press launch as “a formidable drive towards the Masters, targeted on plunging Eternia into imminent darkness.” Revelation ended with a tease of the character’s existence, and it appears she’ll be one of many main antagonists of the brand new present. As Hordak’s emissary, the evil AI (nicely, evil-er AI) will use her powers to “manipulate Skeletor and the individuals of Eternia as she goals to ensnare the planet, and Grayskull, as a prize for Hordak.”
In that very same press launch, Foster (lately seen in Hellblazers and There’s No Such Factor as Vampires) known as her unique flip as Evil-Lyn “one in all my most cherished roles. I’m each thrilled and honored to return again into the fold to embody an excellent, all-new villainous character that provides colour to the colourful storytelling that Kevin Smith and Mattel have dropped at life for followers world wide.”
The express point out of Hordak by title is certainly going to lift some eyebrows for previous head followers of the sequence. He’s one of many foremost villains of the MOTU franchise alongside Skeletor (whom he hates), and extra lately popped up as the primary baddie of Netflix’s unconnected She-Ra & the Princesses of Power cartoon from a number of years in the past. She-Ra’s unique 1985 sequence was itself a by-product to the 1983 He-Man cartoon, which Smith’s two Netflix exhibits additionally are, so there’s some fascinating flags being planted right here for the way forward for these MOTU exhibits. If Revolution is being cut up into a number of elements like its predecessor was, possibly a kind of halves will finish with a tease of a revamped Adora.
Masters of the Universe: Revolution is at the moment anticipated to launch on Netflix in 2024.
