He Man And The Masters Of The Universe

Sony Pictures Sets Masters Of The Universe For Release In 2019

Sony Pictures gives The Babysitter director McG‘s upcoming fantasy film Masters of the Universe an official release date of December 18th, 2019.

The announcement comes alongside the news that Sony has also picked a release date for another big release, Angry Birds 2. The animated sequel will hit theaters on September 20th, 2019, a couple months before Masters makes its debut. Additionally, the studio has also set its planned animated Spider-Man film for release on December 14th, 2019, just days before the He-Man movie premieres.

Based on the Mattel toy line and the beloved 1980’s cartoon series of the same name, the movie will revolve around Prince Adam’s efforts to save Eternia from destruction. Blessed with the power to transform into the mighty He-Man, Adam will have to rise to the occasion and defeat the wicked Skeletor before peace returns to the land.

Superherohype, the source of this story, shares the following information about the franchise:

Originally launched as a popular Mattel toy line in 1982, “Masters of the Universe” spawned several animated series (including the female-driven spinoff cartoon series, “She-Ra: Princess of Power”) along with a 1987 live-action film. Directed by Gary Goddard, the first Masters of the Universe movie stars Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Frank Langella as Skeletor and, in one of her very first big screen roles, a young Courteney Cox as Julie Winston, a teenage character created specifically for the film.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
