The 'Masters of the Universe' Netflix series is in production
Kevin Smith has given an update on progress of his upcoming He-Man anime series with Netflix.
After teasing the new series upon its confirmation in August by saying it “pick[s] up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor,” Smith has taken a new fan Q&A as an opportunity to spill more details on the upcoming series.
“When will you see it? Probably not for a while,” Smith said in the video. “Don’t count on at least for six months but I’ve seen stuff and it’s amazing.”
He also said that frequent collaborator Jason Mewes – aka Jay – looks set for a part in the show too, saying: “He ain’t gonna be Orco, I’ll tell you that right now. But I can get him in there somewhere. He seems like a Stinkor to me.”
Last year, Smith told fans that he’d suffered a “massive heart attack” while filming an episode of his reality TV show Comic Book Men but reassured fans that he was recovering well.
