It looks like the gush of 1980s nostalgia which has brought us the return of G.I. JOE and THE TRANSFORMERS has now washed up another blast from the past. HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.
The Cartoon Network has announced a new version of the sword and sorcery, toy-friendly show will hit their airwaves August 16 with a 90 minute movie which tells the original story setting up the HE universe and MAN's place in it.
According to press materials put out by the network, "Eternia is a land of myth, sorcery and advanced technology where epic heroes accomplish remarkable deeds, strange creatures roam the land, and malevolent enemies wreak havoc. Deep within Castle Grayskull lies the repository of universal knowledge hidden long ago by the Elders of Eternia. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defend Castle Grayskull and all of Eternia from the tyrannical Skeletor and his Evil Warriors."
