e still remember the 80's cartoon "He-Man, The Strongest Man in the Universe," the show created by Mattel in 1982. This was introduced after the success of "Star Wars" action figures. Director Kevin Smith is teaming up with Netflix to remake the 80's hit. He is coming up with "Masters of the Universe: Revelation."

Smith revealed details about his new project in the Power-Con convention in California this weekend. "This is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!," he said.

The original series showed the powerful man of the universe, He-Man, in a constant war with the wizard Skeletor on the planet Eternia. Smith said, "I'm Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull but also their entire Universe."

According to the BBC. the new storyline is set right after where the former ends. The new "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" will show the effect of the battle between the two original conflicting characters. The Netflix show will use Japanese anime-style animation for the new series.

NME reported that the Vice President of Mattel TV, Rob David added: "Fans of this franchise have been waiting for the continuation of these characters, and Kevin Smith, as a Masters superfan himself, is the perfect champion and partner to expand the canon through a dynamic animated series on Netflix."

"He-Man" was made into a film in 1987. The film included stars like Frank Langella and a pre-Friends Courteney Cox, but the film was a big flop as it couldn't recover the $22m budget. Nevertheless, the film has attained cult status among some of its fans and became very popular.

The Netflix series not only promises to continue from where it ended, but it also promises better animation with a touch of Netflix spice. The premier date for the upcoming series has not been revealed yet.
