Netflix held some kind of event on Saturday where they showed off a bunch of new trailers for their upcoming and returning shows. Sounds neat! I’m as much a fan of Netflix shows as the next person. And I wanted to share the best two, in my opinion. Or the most exciting two.
First up is the first look at the Sandman adaptation. Neil Gaiman’s magnum opus has never before been adapted. And it looks pretty cool so far.
Next up is the second season of The Witcher.
I’m a huge fan of the Witcher games and never read the books, so the show is a bit early in Geralt’s timeline for me. But the first season was fun and everybody seemed to like it, so this second season appears to have a better budget maybe? Here’s hoping this Witcher show takes off and we get a whole series worth of content!
Sandman is coming sometime next year, and The Witcher returns on Dec. 17.
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.
I was among that big group of everybody who very much enjoyed The Witcher TV show on Netflix last fall…or two falls ago? Who can tell at this point. Anyway, season two is coming later this year, but Netflix has also decided to expand the brand a bit and we’re going to get a prequel cartoon in two weeks.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is going to tell the story of Vesemir, the Witcher who trains Geralt.
Looks pretty awesome. Done in an anime-style, similar to the recent (and amazing) Castlevania show on Netflix. If this is even half as good as Castlevania, Nightmare of the Wolf should be pretty awesome! And then we’ll be properly introduced to Vesemir before he shows up in season two of the live action show.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf arrives on Netflix on Aug. 23.
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.
I’m always on the lookout for new cartoons to enjoy. BoJack Horseman, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and She-Ra and the Princess of Power are over. I’ve got to move on. And I’m moving directly into Centaurworld, possibly the weirdest, wildest new show we’re going to get this year.
That looks spectacular. It looks insane and weird and creative and hopefully perfect. The creator said she based the show off her own experiences in college, coming in as someone focused on her studies who randomly joined a musical theater club and had her life changed forever. That sounds neat! And it definitely looks reflected in that trailer. I can’t wait to see what this show is all about.
Centaurworld arrives on Netflix on July 30.
