Just so we're all on one side in terms of important information, there are currently no plans for Netflix's She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to somehow involve He-Man's Prince Adam in his story. But that does not mean that He-Man will not come back in style.
Kevin Smith, announced at Power-Con and followed by an official Netflix press release, announced he was executive producing. Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a new animated series specifically designed to track a number of the unresolved storylines of the original series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe .
Netflix described it as "Limited Series" and "Anime Series" in contrast to Noelle Stevenson's She-Ra and will include character designs by Powerhouse Animation.

"In Revelation we're right where the classic era left off and tell an epic tale of the possibly final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metallic character designs that Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame. This is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid! "
Along the way there is also a big-screen He-Man project with Noah Centineo. No streaming date has been published for Masters of the Universe: Revelation . We bring you more as we know it.
