In an alternate introduction scene for Teela, Teela is actually held captive in the dungeons of Snake Mountain, but she escapes and helps several imprisoned resistance fighters outside. This scene was not filmed, but was used in novelizations and was mentioned in the official movie and poster magazine. See more »

After the closing credits have ended, Skeletor's head, sans cowl, pops up from the waters of the pit he was thrown in, and says "I'll be back!". See more »
It's better than Transformers, better than Blade Runner, better than Backdraft.
Dolph Lundgren IS He-Man. There are lots of lasers blasting guys that look like Stormtroopers sort of.
Frank Langella IS Skeletor. He always gives a great performance and this is his best, better than Frost/Nixon, where he played one of those guys.
The girl who plays Teela IS Teela. Her outfit is awesome, and she is gorgeous. I would marry her, but I'm not really ready to commit at this point in my life.
That little dude IS Gwildor. He made me believe that a small dwarf could make a thing that creates portals to other worlds.
Special effects are awesome, no Battle-Cat but I heard it's cause they had a big cat but he ate an extra and whatever they had to fire him. The cat, not the extra, he died of blood loss from massive head trauma cause the cat ate part of his face.
Great movie. Dolph Lundgren rules now and forever. You should also check The Punisher, which is the greatest film ever made.
