The upcoming Netflix series Masters of the Universe: Revelation recently had its first trailer debut during Geeked Week, and the upcoming show is full of nostalgia and muscle-men punching each other.

The first He-Man trailer is a montage of action sequences, and anyone who grew up watching the original show will feel immediate nostalgia for the new version--while the animation is a lot slicker, it still looks exactly like a He-Man cartoon. All the familiar characters--from He-Man, Teela, and Orko to Skeletor and Evil-Lyn--are in there, as is He-Man's famous catchphrase--"I have the power!" Check the trailer out below:

The showrunner on Masters of the Universe: Revelation is Kevin Smith, and the cast includes Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Chris Wood as He-Man, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, and Stephen Root as Cringer. The first five episodes will be released on July 23, with more to follow later in the year.

The official plot synopsis reads: "After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it’s up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe."

Also released on Netflix on July 23 is the Masters of the Universe: Revelation Aftershow, in which the cast and crew will talk about making the series. The 25 minute special will include appearances from Hamill, Wood, Gellar, and Headey.

The Masters of the Universe: Revelation trailer was revealed as part of Netflix's Geeked Week virtual event. Other announcements have included the full trailer for the Fear Street movie trilogy, the release date for Locke & Key Season 2, an announcement of new Stranger Things casting and a prequel podcast, the episode titles for Umbrella Academy Season 3, and the news that its live-action Cowboy Bebop adaptation will debut this fall.
