“And where did that power get you?”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a continuation of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983). The new series premiered on July 23rd 2021 and was written by Kevin Smith. Part 2 released on November 23rd 2021 on Netflix. The show stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lena Headey, Chris Wood, and Mark Hamill. There are five episodes in part 2 that run for approximately 25-28 minutes each.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation part 2 doesn’t hold anything back as it continues a familiar plot while creating something new and relevant in the process. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Necessary character arcs are explored.
I thought that part 2 did an excellent job with this. Each character went through an important journey of self-discovery and we even got to learn more about their past, which helped me connect to them even more. It wasn’t just about them defeating the great evil. It was about them embracing who they are, realizing that they still have time to make an impact on their own terms.
The humor continued.
There was a lot going on in these episodes, but I appreciated that the dry humor was still present because it really elevated the series and kept it truly fun and entertaining. Mark Hamill was fantastic as always and I was so beyond impressed with Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn. It’s like she was made for this role!
Reveals worth the wait!
There were some really great reveals and twists in part 2. I was so excited for some of them and they really emerged with perfect timing to keep us fully invested. Even though this is technically a series, it felt like a movie and I loved every second of it!
A lot jam-packed into part 2…
This isn’t necessarily a con, but maybe we could have benefited from six episodes to give enough time to everything. I didn’t really mind it because the pacing was done really well and it felt like a movie, but there was a lot going on and a lot to paying attention to.
So am I in or out?
Part 2 blew part 1 out of the water and then some! I could not stop watching this show and I had to watch all five episodes in one sitting. It was that good!
