this would be a really cool idea. just not sure if they would want to take the time.
I was reading recently about how Netflix has been taking certain shows and reviving them which made me think of a few shows that Cartoon Network seems to randomly kill off for the sake of it (MOTU, Thundercats, Young Justice). I couldn't help, but wonder if some form of revival on Netflix or somewhere similar could be possible (I think even Amazon are producing programmes stuff these days).
Though I know it's been some time I do feel that many of us have hung onto the idea of seeing some form of season 3 of 200X (even if it were just the plot ideas folded into a new canon). Even if a full season three isn't a possible, I think that a dvd movie or two through them that wraps the 200X story up could be possible. There were some very interesting prospects we never got to see unfold like Teela learning her mother was the Sorceress and so on.
I know it's a long shot, but it's an idea. What do you guys thinks?
I'd back this 110%
Meh, I'm pretty much done with Netflix. They give raising their prices, removing content, and... oh god, my post is turning out negative on this too.
I definitely would welcome a new He-Man cartoon, but I'd rather it be direct to video movies like DC does over someone like Netflix doing it.
As for a continuation of the 2002 series, honestly, at this point, I'd rather they just started over from scratch and do something similar, but with different ideas. I wouldn't mind a full blown Classics series, as it would follow a lot of the back bone of the 2002 series, but it has more than enough new ideas in it that it would not feel like a rehash of it. Or even a Tales of Eternia series where each episode features a different He-Man throughout the ages. Have the first one be on Oo-Lar and an adaptation of the original mini-comic. Have the second one be about King Grayskull. A third episode on Vikor. And so forth.
Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
I would LOVE this!!!! Any way to get more MOTU media is great in my book!!! I heard a rumor that Arresting Development was being revived in this way.....funny stuff!!! One can hope
Most likely not going to happen, but it would be awesome if it did. The 200X cartoons have a great story, great action, great continuity, and make good use of all the characters they introduce. Far superior to the Filmation series when you factor out nostalgia.
A series based on the new DC comics would be even better, I think the new DC comics are brilliant.
The power of Grayskull compels you!

Nah, I want a new cartoon. There was a lot I really liked about the 200X cartoon, but it wasn't classic or the ideal incarnation as far as I was concerned. I want a NEW vision which is heavily influenced by the original and 200X show, but combines them into something greater - kind of like the MOTUC figure series does....
An entirely new, animated show based on the MOTUC storyline that spans the time of Vikor all the way to Primus and the Space Mutants and back to Eternia again.
Warner Bros. Animation Studio does the animation for all of DC's Animated Movies, and since DC has been releasing a MOTU comic, why not a new animated series?
(Hope springs eternal!)
**Staunch FILMation Subscription supporter!!! **** NEEDS a New Adventures Subscription!!!**
MOTUC NEEDS more TROLLANS !!!
As for 200X, it's gone, I never liked it, don't want to see it come back. If anything would be wrapped up or a movie, I'd like to see Classics Media put out a couple Filmation based episodes to fill in gaps and give a fitting end to that era, but I'd settle for a new Filmation story based or something resembling the Filmation canon, but could go in a different direction. Hell I'd like to see a Season 4 continuation, or a new 5 for Transformers G1....today, both a G1 Transformers and a Filmation styled He-Man would be awesome to watch, no animation restrictions or anything.
But a Filmation based prequel or sequel to the 80's cartoon would be cool, but not the crap ass kiddy animation of say the new Voltron, something like Thundercats was recently....that would be cool.
Recent....Sea Hawk & Geldor
Wanted....Grizzlor, Modulok, Glimmer, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
Needed....Dragstor,Two Bad & Attack Trak
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
I think a Filmation wrap up is another good proposition. Though it it came down to a choice between a Filmation wrap up or a 200X one then the 200X would win hands down. I just can't watch Filmation as an adult. It's just too childish. To me the storytelling and animation of the 200X show is more appealing. Though I'd happily go for a new iteration and a new spin on motu stories (if it was aimed at a wider audience and not just at young kids like Filmation or like current shows like Ultimate Spider-man).
I wish they would do both, Their are so many characters that were never used like: Extendar, Dragstor, Rotar and Blast-Attak.
I would prefer a brand new cartoon come out as opposed to a continuation of the MYP or any other previous He-Man/She-Ra show.
I would really like to see the series return, though I would prefer a Classics type cartoon. Now if we were to get both, that would be something!
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!
Most Wanted MOTU Classics:
*MotU ~ Ninjor/Rio Blast *PoP ~ Angella/Mermista *200X ~ Roboto/Calix *Filmation ~ Teela Na/Lord Masque
*Play-Sets ~ Snake Mountain/Fright Zone *Vehicles ~ Roton/Land Shark *Beasts ~ Night Stalker/Stridor
I would be fine with a 200X revival but I think I would prefer a new cartoon based more on the MOTUC bios with the looks based on the MOTUC figures.

I would love to see it happen, but there just isn't a compelling reason for a company to do it.
Shows that have been revived (Arrested Development, Family Guy, Futurama, etc) were selling millions of units of DVDs. In other words they were making massive amounts of money on old content.
No one is going to revive a show that at its peak sold 10s of thousands of DVDs.
And if we do get new animated content, I would just about guarantee it will be an all-new show. Its going to be something that starts from scratch, does not require continuity from a 10 or 30 year old show and is going to be in conjunction with a new line of toys and merchandise to help support it.
By comparison, Arrested Development is probably easier to bring back since in simplified terms it's as simple as getting the sets and actors back, pointing a camera at them, and shooting.
Even if the MYP show had DVD sales close to or on par with those other shows, producing more episodes or a new series for Netflix would probably fall outside of their budget.
Maybe. But I doubt the cost of animation is more than the salaries of the AD cast.
