He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is getting a 21st century revival. The animated superhero show, which spawned a cult following during its early ’80s run, will air with a new episode “The Curse of The Three Terrors” at San Diego’s Comic Con thanks to the Super7 team.
The original He-Man & the Masters of the Universe cartoon premiered in 1983 and aired until 1985, when a spinoff titled She-Ra: Princess of Power took its place; it was canceled in 1986 after two seasons. He-Man was set on the magical planet of Eternia, which He-Man must protect from the evil Skeletor.
Cartoon Network tried to revive the property in 2002 when it remade the series for television. It was developed by He-Man creator Michael Halperin and brought back several of the original series writers, but featured an all-new voice cast.
