Netflix has released the first trailer for Kevin Smith’s ‘Masters Of The Universe: Revelation‘ series, which premieres this July on the streaming service.
The new series will focus on the unresolved storylines of the classic ’80s era, picking up many of the characters’ journeys where they left off decades ago.
