He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was one of the biggest things to come out of the 80s, and it would make sense that Hollywood would try a jab at making a live-action film. After years of development hell, news has come out that the movie could finally start shooting in July.

This comes from Production Weekly on Twitter:

We don't know much about the story for the film, but it's said that the movie will be playing up the lore a bit. For one, it's said that they would be changing the relationship between He-Man and Skeletor. Instead of Skeletor being He-Man's uncle, they're making him his brother.

Of course, take that with a grain of salt. Unless something solid has been announced, all we can really do is guess.

For now, the success of a He-Man movie is still hard to tell. 2017's Power Rangers attempted to reinvigorate the franchise, but so far, the film has turned out a tad forgettable. If they want to reintroduce He-Man, I think they should really go all out with the film with dazzling set design and solid writing.

If it's any consolation, Netflix's She-Ra and the Princesses of Power was a huge hit, and there's a bunch of kids out there who have some newfound knowledge on the lore of Eternia. Maybe the movie can ride on the hype by the time it comes out.

No release date has been set for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
