Did You Know?

Trivia

Many plot points from the original He-Man series have been continued here, including the fact that Man-at-Arms is Teela's adoptive father and that her unknown birth mother is none other than the Sorceress. 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

The first three episodes ("The Beginning: Part 1", "The Beginning: Part 2" and "The Beginning: Part 3") originally aired as one ninety-minute TV movie on August 16 before they were broken down into three thirty-minute episodes which began airing on August 30. No material was cut from the thirty-minute versions and the ninety-minute version didn't feature the opening title sequence. See more »

He-Man still has the power...
20 January 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I grew up on the 1980's cartoon with "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" and I enjoy essentially everything about this franchise. So when they decided to rekindle the franchise in 2002, after having left off with "New Adventures of He-Man", I was more than excited.

And the two seasons that managed to be made in 2002 and 2003 were living up to my expectations and then some. They had managed to capture the magic and essence of the 1980's animated series to the very heart of it all, but they had also managed to evolve the franchise. This evolution took the new animated series in a more mature direction, without it becoming unsuitable for the younger viewers still.

While the animation and drawing style deviates from the original series, then it is still quite enjoyable. And it was refreshing to see the changes made to the character designs and the Eternia universe as a whole.

The episodes are enjoyable to watch and the story is a nicely told story that progress well throughout the course of the episodes. There is a good continuation throughout the entire series.

If you enjoyed the 1980's animated series of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe", then you will most definitely also enjoy the 2002 revival of the franchise. It was just a shame that the series didn't continue for more than two seasons.

And the best part about this 2002 series, like the original 1980's series, is that it can be watched again and again. And it is more than well-deserving a place in the collection of any fan of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe".
