Masters of the Universe is a timeless franchise that has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world since its inception with an animated series and toy line in the 1980s, then evolving into comics and a live-action film in 1987.

In recent years, the reboot of the franchise has generated a lot of speculation regarding the directors and actors involved. Initially, the project was in the works at Netflix, but budget issues led to its move to Amazon. The Lost City's Adam and Aaron Nee were originally attached to the project, with Kyle Allen, known for his work on West Side Story and Rosaline, taking on the lead role of He-Man.

Director Aaron Nee shared the importance of treating source material with care during an interview with ScreenRant: “This is a huge movie, but it feels like it's our baby. We're having the kind of closeness and affection that we would have for an independent project."
