Kevin Smith wants all 10 episodes of Netflix’s Masters Of The Universe: Revelation to be released at the same time to counter the controversy.
Kevin Smith says he wants all 10 episodes of Masters of the Universe: Revelation were released at the same time. Smith created and wrote the new series, which follows the events and characters of the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe ’80s series. The animated miniseries released the first half of the show in July, with the second five episodes debuting last week.
Masters of the Universe: Revelation features the vocal talents of Mark Hamill, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Chris Wood, Tiffany Smith, Lena Headey and Liam Cunningham. Smith wrote the majority of the writing for the series, which builds on the mythology presented with the original series and takes it in new and unexpected directions. The first half of the show took greater risks, seemingly killing fan favorites and creating bad direction while overturning expectations, a move that shocked many fans.
In an interview with thrill, Smith reflects on receiving the first half of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, saying he wants all ten episodes released at the same time, as that would likely have eliminated some of the criticism that now seems premature given the way things have turned out in the second half of the series. Smith was “frustrated” by the negative reception, noting how the first five episodes definitely left things in a place where they “broken all toys” and the public had no idea how they would be fixed in the second half. With much of the criticism resolved in the second half, Smith wants all ten episodes released initially. While some may not return based on their feelings during the first half, Smith is hopeful that those viewers eventually return to see how things work out. Here is his full quote:
âBut it left us in this position where we broke all the toys, and they didn’t know they were fixed in the next five. So instead we had to take a lot of heat. Some cats literally thought. that we killed Orko. In retrospect, I wish all ten had increased because then that would have undone all of that. I’m not saying freeing the ten would have done everyone love this. I’m sure there would still be people who would say, “I don’t like that. It’s not for me.” Some will not come back. But maybe years later someone will tell them, “No, it sticks to the landing.” The best you can hope for is that they end up giving it a boost. “
In addition to Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Netflix also has another MOTU show currently airing on its platform. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is a new CGI take on the classic ’80s cartoon, which is aimed more at a younger audience, while Revelation plays for the adult audience who grew up with the old cartoon. Live action Masters of the Universe the film was made in 1987 starring Dolph Lundgren, and a new adaptation has been in the works for years but continues to be stuck in developmental hell with little movement towards production lately.
Smith is right to wish that the ten episodes of Masters of the Universe: Revelation had aired all at once, although it was unfair for viewers to prejudge the outcome based on the first five episodes. Ultimately, the first half of the series left things in a place that turned expectations upside down, and it was impossible to predict where things were going to go from there. While the second half ultimately turned out to be a more satisfying conclusion to the saga, viewers who were initially turned off are unlikely to return, which puts a stain on an otherwise well-crafted series. As Smith states, there will always be those who don’t care about the series, regardless of when the episodes are released, but it’s far better to be judged on the whole series, rather than the first half. only.
