Netflix has revealed the first teaser trailer for Kevin Smith’s upcoming animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which serves as continuation of Filmation’s classic 80s series He-Man and Masters of the Universe. The video provides us our first preview at the updated version of some beloved characters including He-Man and Skeletor as the power of Grayskull returns back to the world. The first part of the series is scheduled to make its debut on Friday, July 23 with the first five episodes.
