Last Updated on July 30, 2021

The "story trailer" for Netflix's upcoming animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation wasn't supposed to be released online until later this week, but due to a scheduling mix-up and some leaks, it was released early and you can check it out in the embed above! The show serves as a direct follow-up to the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series from the '80s, and this trailer gives some more information on what the MOTU characters will be dealing with when we catch up with them after all these decades.

The show has the following synopsis: 

The war for Eternia culminates in MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION, an innovative and action-packed animated series that picks up where the iconic characters left off decades ago. After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe.

The voice cast includes Chris Wood as Prince Adam/He-Man, Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Griffin Newman as Orko, Stephen Root as Cringer, Henry Rollins as Tri-Klops, Tony Todd as Scare Glow, Justin Long as Roboto, Jason Mewes as Stinkor, Phil LaMarr as He-Ro, Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, Diedrich Bader as King Randor/Trap Jaw, Tiffany Smith as Andra, Susan Eisenberg as Sorceress, Cree Summer as Priestess, Kevin Michael Richardson as Beast Man, Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man, Harley Quinn Smith as Ileena, and original Skeletor Alan Oppenheimer as Moss Man.

Kevin Smith serves as showrunner on Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and Netflix has also released a "trailer breakdown" video in which Smith discusses the moments and characters the trailer shows us. You can see that video below.

This season of Revelation consists of ten episodes, and the first five episodes will be available to watch on Netflix as of July 23rd.
