IGN has the news that Prince Adam and his out-of-the-closest alter ego ( I keed!) and friends return for more adventures in Eternia.

Everything old is new again.






From the article....

... the new series begins with "Skeletor having won a major victory and rewriting the world of Eternia where he now rules from Castle Grayskull and the Masters have no memory of their former glory" and chronicles Adam's ascent to becoming the world's champion He-Man. The series will debut in July, celebrating the franchise's 30th anniversary.

I really do like the characters, but I hope to see something new and creative and brave with the story. Otherwise it feels like the cartoon reboot did from 2002. (Has it been 10 years already?!)

Word! Granted, I saw like, one episode of the 2002 one, but it seemed a lot better. Smoother story, better animation, THE SECRET IDENTITY THING...


It's too bad it didn't last long enough to do She-Ra.

She-Ra had been planned for the 3rd season. But it was canceled after season 2.

Oh what might have been...

And Hordak too. I would have loved to see them do Hordak.

I think they were planning on bringing in the entire Etheria crew....the Horde, Hordak, Cat-Ra, Shadow Weaver, Glimmer, Bow, Castaspella, Angella, and all that lot at some point. Might have had the potentional to spin off into a new She-Ra series alongside the He-Man one.

Like I said when I think of what might have been...

Yeah, as it was, the show had the most WTH ending ever.

Zodak shows up and hypnotizes King Hiss into EATING HIS OWN HEAD.

Not only does it turn the whole blood knight/ineffectual loner trope on its head (Where the revenge obsessed loner normally fails or makes things worse, Zodak actually managed to kill the big bad all by himself, or at least crippled him.) But.... MADE HIM EAT HIS OWN HEAD.
