Couple Fun Cartoons Coming Up

As is usually the case, the world of entertainment continues to churn out new shows for us to absorb and enjoy. It’s just the way the wheel turns. And we got a couple of fun trailers for said entertainments this week!

Like Star Wars: Visions, which looks like the good people at Star Wars hired a bunch of anime pros and told them to go nuts.

This looks gorgeous! A wonderful blend of Star Wars and anime and looks like it’s going to explore all sorts of corners of the Star Wars universe. Sounds great to me! I look forward to this one going really wild. Star Wars: Visions is coming to Disney+ on Sept. 22.

Next up, we’re getting an even newer He-Man cartoon!

Apparently, Masters of the Universe: Revelation wasn’t enough for Netflix and they had this whole other He-Man cartoon in the works as well. This one is CGI and seems more geared towards younger audiences.

Looks pretty OK to me. I’m still waiting for something to do with He-Man what was done with She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Perhaps He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will finally be it! Even though it’s still not just a straight forward He-Man revival cartoon, which is what I’m pretty sure most fans want. Oh well.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe arrives on Netflix on Sept. 16.

So, Masters of the Universe: Revelation Looks Great!

I missed posting the first trailer when it came out a couple weeks ago, but thankfully we’ve got a new trailer for Masters of the Universe: Revelation so I now have an excuse to post them both! Behold the epic fantasy of the latest He-Man cartoon relaunch!

It looks great! It looks action-packed and dripping in lore and mythology. It looks like people took some real time and effort to plot out and plan how to bring back He-Man with some oomph. That sounds good to me.

I was a big He-Man fan when I was a kid. It was definitely part of my 80s childhood rotation of Ninja Turtles/G.I. Joe/Transformers and more. So I’m all in favor of this cartoon. I’m still a little disappointed that He-Man never had a guest appearance on She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, but time will heal that wound.

If Masters of the Universe: Revelation has even a fraction of the storytelling prowess of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power then we are in for a good time!

He-Man returns, on Netflix, on July 23.

Those Maniacs! They Blew It Up! My She-Ra Dreams Are Dead!

God damn you all to Hell! Kevin Smith has announced that he’s going to showrun a Netflix revival of the original Masters of the Universe cartoon from the 1980s. Not a reboot, but a continuation of wherever that original He-Man cartoon left off. Ridiculous.

It’s going to be called Masters of the Universe: Revelation.

HeMan Revelation 01

First of all, what a dumb name. Could you be any more generic? Did someone not like Masters of the Universe: Vengeance?

Second of all, who really cares or remembers how the original 1980s cartoon left off? I watched that cartoon as lovingly as I watched all the other 80s cartoons and I don’t care one lick! I know that original Masters of the Universe fans still exist, but come oooon. Are those few people really so passionate as to catch Netflix’s attention? So much so that it has to be a continuation and not a reboot?

Third of all, I’m just really salty that this garbage is probably going to supersede He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cast joining the amazing She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cartoon. I just did a List of Six about this, people! That’s supposed to be part of the She-Ra endgame!

Grumble grumble.
