Kevin Smith geeking out and tearing up doesn't do much for me, but the music sounds great.

Wouldn't it have been better to show a teaser trailer or at least a new promotional poster with the characters?, this video with Smith reacting just doesn't provoke me anything.

Since we dont even know when its going to premiere and I am guessing probably not till the end of the year its hard to say. I agree there isnt much here in this clip to get excited about, but I see this more of a hey dont forget this is coming kind of thing and also allows Smith to show how passionate he is for the project. At this point I would say its this or nothing, so I would say its better than nothing.

In an effort to tease his upcoming Masters Of The Universe: Revelation animated series coming to Netflix later this year, he has posted this reaction video were we see him watching a clip from the new show.We as the viewing audience dont get to see the actual clip, only hear it play on Smiths PC as he reacts to it.The clip is said to feature the transformation process of when Prince Adam lifts up his sword to transform himself into He-Man and Cringer into Battle Cat.Mostly what you hear in the clip is music playing, but we do get to hear the update version of Prince Adam say By The Power Of Grayskyll.Both He-Man and Prince Adam are voiced by Chris Wood (Supergirl, The Vampire Diaries) in this new series which is said to be a continuation of the original Filmation series.

Crazy that we'll be getting two different MOTU shows. Cant' wait.

Candyman as Scare Glow and Batman Kevin Conroy as Merman. Plus Mark Hamil,Looks like an Allstar cast. They said a continuation of the original show. They even have the original Skeletor as Moss Man.I hope it the final product turns outgreat.
