The 80s were an absolute goldmine for amazing cartoons. Thundercats, Transformers, and DuckTales were just a few of the gems we were lucky enough to grow up with. Along with those classics, we also had the incomparable He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The show only ran from 1983-1985, but it had a massive impact on kids who grew up in the 80s. It was also a show so perfect that when Cartoon Network tried to reboot it in 2002 it just couldn’t achieve the same success of the original. Now, for the first time since 1985, 80s kids will be able to relive their childhood with a brand new episode.
On July 13, Super7 announced that the episode, titled The Curse of the Three Terrors, will premier at San Diego Comic Con on July 20th in a free public screening. For those of you nowhere near San Diego, fear not, the episode will be available for download on both iTunes and Google Play starting August 1st. At this point it’s not clear whether this will just be a one-off episode or a first step towards a new series, but the trailer Super7 released looks so perfect that MOTU fans are bound to be begging for more. Check out the nostalgia-inducing trailer below.
From the sounds of it, original Skeletor voice actor Alan Oppenheimer has returned to his iconic role, which can only bode well for reboot-weary 80s kids. While there’s no sign of He-Man in this brief preview, it definitely looks like Skeletor is up to no good. August 1st just can’t come soon enough, but in the meantime, you can always compare the new trailer to the original opening.
