    I just really enjoyed that as a kid...especially having Hordak and Skeletor interact. And I think it would pull in fans of the new She-Ra, younger people who have no connection to original MOTU.

    I had someone really excited by my Skeletor t-shirt who was half my age and it was only because of the Netflix She-Ra.

    Oh, me too, don't get me wrong. I mean if they don't change the plot much, Netflix's She-Ra isn't THAT She-Ra, she's a completely different person with no connection to the OG He-Man, so it wouldn't make sense.

    Well, I'm hyped for both of these new shows, even though I'm suspecting one will be better than the other. Also I'm glad they're continuing the trend of releasing a new all out reboot every 20 years.

    Fair enough! I just really like the new She-Ra, as different as it is...I think it's well done and would love to have a shared universe with all the MOTU characters.

    But of course we don't know what they're planning with this second series and it might not fit or make sense.

    Anyways. More MOTU...more toys and stuff! I'm in regardless.

    I'm really happy about a fresh take on the brand (and also that it co-exists with MOTU Revelations)

    I really wonder if Mattel plans to produce toys for this new cartoon... i think so

    If it is a success they should do it!

    I can't imagine that they produce "new vintage Toys for adults" and spend money for a kids show whitout toys...

    What do you guys think?

    To make it clear I'm talking about the Colour shading, not neciserily the aesthetic in general.

    Right, in terms of the teaser images themselves. I'll be honest; I'm not a fan of the stylised look. I think this style lends itself more to 2D animation than 3D. It kind of reminds me somewhat of something Genndy Tartakovsky would come up with if he handled MOTU. Still, I'll reserve full judgment until we see more.
    Gennedy doing He-Man would be something you know.

    Its weird coz She-Ra was in Eternity War so why can't there be more She-Ra in comics and in TV series or a movie?

    The news of two "MOTU" TV series on Netflix is definitely surprising, and the reason there would need to be two of them is something I got to thinking about.

    On these message boards and on Roast Gooble, the idea has been floated that one of the two series is aimed at younger audiences, while the other is aimed at the older generation. Possibly so, but here's another thought.

    Kevin Smith's "Revelation" is being touted as a show that is a direct sequel of the 1980s cartoon, picking up where that one left off. For those of us who remember Filmation's show and have even re-watched it in recent years, we'll have no trouble following the "Revelation" series, recognizing references and story threads.

    But not everyone will get those references or know the original show in detail. Kids definitely, but also a good chunk of the older demo.

    So I'm thinking that, possibly, the "He-Man & the MOTU" series is going to be there to assist in that regard. That is, before Netflix drops Season One of "Revelation," they want this other show to familiarize viewers with the players and the world. I imagine "Revelation" is going to be filled with twists and turns and upsets of the status quo, but none of those will really mean much to viewers unacquainted with the status quo of He-Man's world in the first place.

    We've seen indications that "Revelation" will have a 26-episode Season One. How many episodes will "He-Man & the MOTU" have? That hasn't been revealed yet -- there's a possibility that this is only going to be a limited mini-series, just long enough to do its job of putting the pieces on the board explicitly for "Revelation" to start playing with those pieces.

    If the above is right, then it's not so much that the two MOTU shows are aimed at different age groups, but rather that both shows are for all ages, and one just happens to serve in a supporting role as prologue to the other one, and as a refresher-course for audiences of the MOTU basics.

    One might ask, why the different animation styles? Not difficult to imagine Netflix simply wanting the two shows to visually be set apart from each other. Even in a single story like a movie, there is precedent for a "flashback" scene to be given a look and feel that is distinct, such as in stop-motion animation in an otherwise live-action story (for instance, 2015's "Krampus"). It's still the same continuous story and still aimed at the same audience.

    Has anything like the above occurred to anyone else?

    The recently announced series is definitely being aimed at a younger audience.

    There's no way they will produce so many episodes just for 1 season. It looks like an entire series episode order, for now at least.

    IMO, its very simple what's going in. This new show has been labelled as a "reboot". So there you have it. It will clearly be aimed at a new generation of potential fans. Whereas Revelation is a sort of loose sequel to the Filmation series aimed at a more adult audience (although I wouldn't expect loads of blood and guts and curse words). The official MOTU Twitter account has confirmed that neither series has anything to do with the other one.

    OK, good to know. I stay off Twitter and so never got to see that confirmation. Thanks!

    @Chris85, here is my source for saying that there are indications that Revelation has 26 episodes ordered for Season One.

    Though that article also says "3D".

    Which is why I was thinking maybe they meant this new show...



    Though where was it said that "Revelation" (not RevelationS) is a limited series?

    I mainly remember Kevin Smith on podcasts telling that they only had one season order, and
    that's why he couldn't comment about second season. And he hoped to first get this one done...

    It was not said anywhere so far as I know. The other day I postulated that one of the two shows could be meant by the network to be a limited series that set up the other show. Now I've been informed that's not the case.

    I was speaking to someone who helped work on the project and they were telling me it should have a similar tone to the tmnt series by nick which as a turtles fan is the best version right mix of action and humor and the ability to appeal to children and adults. But I also heard the series is a year or two away from being on the streaming service.

    Do you mean the 2012 CGI series? That would be good news! I really liked that series!

    1 or 2 years away? Maybee! But if Mattel says „Stay tuned“ and shows a picture of Skeletor and (part) of He-man...!? I hope we will see it sooner

    Yeah I meant that exact TMNT series! It’s such a great balance of humor and action. The Dream Beaver episode is so good Robert Englund and Bill Moseley both do cameos and they make a Texas chainsaw massacre 3 reference in the general store scene. Stuff for kids and adults.

    I agree it seemed like that was a long time to wait especially with them posting ads.

    Yes, I'm aware of this article. My point is Netflix is not releasing so many episodes per season. We'll be super lucky if they release 13 episodes. I can see them releasing less.

    I believe it is supposed to be six episodes or fewer.

    It would make more sense that the kids show got the 26 episode order given the animation studio when working with DreamWorks regularly put out 26 to 52 episodes per show whereas the animation company for Revelation put out short episode seasons for Castlevania with long breaks and contract renewals.

    Voltron, 3Below, and Dragon Prince have/had short 7-9 episode seasons with breaks and were/are geared toward kids. They're all fantastic too and I prefer any of them over Castlevania or the new She-Ra.

    Voltron had a 78 episode order right off the bat. 3Below had a 26 episode order (Trollhunters 52, not sure on Wizards, so one could argue even more if we include all Tales of Arcadia). My point was episode orders. What they split out and call "seasons" is arbitrary.
