Mattel’s two new Masters of the Universe series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, will premiere this year.
The first is a fan-driven anime show that will pick up the storyline from the ’80s series. The second is an animated adventure series that will introduce a new audience to the franchise.
The latest take on the classic Thomas & Friends franchise, Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go, will premiere this fall in vibrant, 2D animation.
There is a pair of new Barbie specials as well: Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday and Barbie Princess Adventure.
“Our mandate is to engage consumers through timely and compelling episodic television content and television movies based on our iconic franchises,” says Fred Soulie, senior VP and general manager of Mattel Television.
“We have a treasure trove of brands that offers numerous opportunities to create great television,” adds Soulie.
