He-Man Voice Actor Yuri Lowenthal Shares What He Hopes To See From Netflix’s Live-Action Masters Of The Universe Reboot

If you’re a fan of the Masters of the Universe franchise, then a Netflix subscription is a must-have these days. Along with both the kid-friendly He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Kevin Smith’s more mature Masters of the Universe: Revelation shows being available to watch on the service (with the storyline from the latter continuing in the near future with Masters of the Universe: Revolution), Netflix is now home to the upcoming live-action Masters of the Universe reboot movie that was previously housed at Sony. We’re still in the dark on what this particular adaptation will specifically deliver to audiences, but Yuri Lowenthal, who voices Prince Adam/He-Man in Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, has shared with CinemaBlend what he hopes to see from the upcoming movie.

Although my recent conversation with Yuri Lowenthal primarily focused on his forthcoming turn as Mon-El in the animated, direct-to-video DC movie Legion of Super-Heroes, in addition to hearing his reaction on Insomniac’s Spider-Man appearing in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (since he voices that iteration of the Web-Slinger), given the time he’s been spending as He-Man lately, I wanted to get the voice actor’s thoughts on the live-action Masters of the Universe reboot. Lowenthal expressed his desire to see the Netflix movie’s tone handled properly with the following sentiments:

It is amazing that they’ve really doubled down on He-Man. They have the Kevin Smith series coming out pretty much concurrently with our series, and then they’ve got this live-action one. I’m most curious to see… because it’s not our first He-Man and the Masters of the Universe film, [there’s] Dolph Lundgren’s, which we’ve seen, and I think because of what the original cartoon was, that is a really tough transition to live-action. You have to walk a fine line and you almost either have to go full-out camp with it, or you have to get really dark with it and sort of erase some of the comedy. If they could, I would love for them to find that magical in-between, because I think it’s there, and I’m just curious to see how they achieve it. I certainly don’t know the answer to those questions, but I’m definitely going to be sitting on my couch watching to see who solves it.
