He-Man To Return In First New ‘Masters Of The Universe’ Episode In 30 Years At Comic-Con [SDCC 2016]
It's not unusual for San Diego Comic-Con to debut a new episode of a fan-favorite cartoon --- in fact, it'd be downright shocking if there wasn't at least one premiere screening over in the Indigo Ballroom all weekend. When the fan-favorite cartoon in question had its last new episode in 1984, however, that's a little more notable.
And that's exactly what's happening this year. On Wednesday, Super7 --- the folks behind the eponymous magazine and books about Japnese toys who are also responsible for reintroducing the world to Ultimate M.U.S.C.L.E. figures at last year's Comic-Con --- is debuting a brand-new episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe this Wednesday, almost 32 years after the last one.
The episode is called "The Curse of the Three Terrors," and as you can tell from the teaser above, it features Skeletor and Beast-Man. One assumes that it'll also include He-Man, but since the trailer focuses on the bad guys, we don't actually know that for sure. It's entirely possible that it might just be Skeletor and Beast-Man hanging out together for 22 minutes and, I guess, cursing a lot, in which case it would easily be the single best episode of MOTU ever produced.
If you're interested in seeing it for yourself, "The Curse of the Three Terrors" will make its debut on Wednesday, shown outdoors in the parking lot at the corner of 8th Ave and G in downtown San Diego.
And if you want more of Super7's MOTU stuff, the company is also bringing back the same "Skeletor's Lair" pop-up store that it had last year, and this time it will be selling a portfolio of Mark Taylor's original concept art for the toy line.
