Did You Know?

Trivia

Prince Adam's narrative during the opening titles is a variation on the opening monologue from the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983). In both cases, it's meant to explain the Adam/He-Man relationship, but here Adam is interrupted. The unfinished portion from the original is: "Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, 'By the power of Grayskull!'" See more »

Crazy Credits

Unlike the Filmation series, in which the cast list was listed without corresponding characters, in this series the characters are identified by voice actor. However, the spelling of many of the character names is very inconsistent, not only compared to previously established way of writing them, but even from one episode to another. And sometimes, characters and voice actors are listed who were not in the episode in question. See more »

Alternate Versions

Moral segments were recorded and animated for the end of every episode, but not shown during the original US broadcast run. They were all included on the DVD release. See more »

A Vast Improvement on The Original
30 April 2003 | by Ken-120See all my reviews

I used to watch the original He-Man series, but eventually I grew out of it after realizing just how poorly budgeted and written it was, albeit with with notable exceptional episodes.

However, this series is a perfect example of the best kind of remake. The producers obviously examined the original series thoroughly and set out to play up the best elements of the series and rectify the weaknesses. As a result, the series boasts vastly superior animation that avoids the constant cycles and other crudities of Filmation's work. There is also wonderful writing with stories that are so well paced that each episode has the feel of a feature film with the amount of content they manage to pack in. The characters are formed with intricate detail and it allows for a truly compelling viewing experience.

It is a pleasure to see a remake finally be everything that it should be.
