    MOTU 1987 Movie Blu-ray coming!

    From Jim Bowers:
    Pat Miller, the master colorist at Warner Bros., has begun mastering Masters of the Universe tonight for Blu-ray. He told me that the film is in bad shape and the opticals need a lot of work. I know the movie is a guilty pleasure for some of you, so soon you will have another 80s Cannon film to enjoy!

    I have already seen the movie in HD broadcast. I wonder where it was mastered from because it looked decent.

    I love this film now - but lack of resemblance to Filmation gave my ten year old self a petted lip at the Glasgow cinema in 1987 in which I viewed it.

    It needs this treatment and the fact that it is being restored by a master is fitting. This could have been a rushed out film - and maybe the lack of time spent on stop motion or creature effects is a regret - but Goddard and the production crew enjoyed making it. Christina Pickles and Courtney Cox recall it with fondness and it captures a truly eighties zeitgeist. Star Wars, Back To The Future, Brat Pack, Scifi-horror/monster movies (if toned down) are all present and correct and if Tarantino/Rodriguez ever did an eighties blockbuster homage in the way they celebrated 70s trash Grindhouse, their production should look like this.

    Great news! Does anyone know how long it usually takes to finish such a job? Any ideas when the bluray could be released?

    So do you think the Toy Masters people and Goddard will be able to provide the featurettes they were talking about doing? I wonder if Goddard is involved...

    It sounds like they are remastering it, so I would assume so.

    The Toy Masters documentary looks great, it would be a crime not to included it. I can't imagine that WB would do a Blu-ray without extra's like extended scenes and directory commentary.

    How awesome would it be if Mattel got the toy rights in conjunction with the release of the Blu-ray. One can hope.

    I was asked to leave this off the main page for now. I guessing the plans for the DVD haven't been finalized, so I'm guessing we need to wait for an official announcement before putting it on the main page.

    I did ask the Toy Masters guys if they or Goddard's material might be incorporated into such a release. They said:

    Hopefully it can be actually confirmed soon.
    The news-bit from Jim Bowers was really exciting thing to hear, but for all we know whole thing might be scrapped.

    That could certainly help with DVD sales. I could even see the film being sold on Mattycollector as part of the deal with them.

    I really want to see a special edition of this film. I also wouldn't mind seeing a few of the old FX get fixed, such as the He-Man minature (model) flying on the hoverboard, which looked awful even in 87. I still remember the audience laughing at that first shot of the model. That was a bad optical that could be easily fixed for a special edition.
