“Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe“
Here are some relatively Spoiler-Free thoughts about the Documentary: Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe covers the development of the original toys, the mini-comics, the animated TV series and the 1987 Live Action film. Going in, I thought I knew everything there was to know about this franchise, but I was actually pleased to have learned a ton of new details and trivia about the He-Man franchise. It was delightful to see the Artists and designers talk about the development of the original Toy line as well as the Mini-Comic that began to flesh out the story line. The segment on the development of the Filmation animated series featured some impressive behind the scenes information as well as insight on the voice actors and animation directors. It was also interesting to learn that there had been incredible diversity behind the scenes, in terms of the artists and directors involved in creating the series.
I’m a big fan of She-Ra, so the segment on the development of She-Ra was definitely a highlight. No shade to He-Man, but I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks that She-Ra’s show was at times more thought provoking! I think perhaps the strong point of the documentary is the segment focused on the 1987 Masters of the Universe live action movie, where we are treated to very humbling and honest reflections from Actors Frank Langella and Dolph Lundgren, who go into detail about their experience on the production and also the critical reaction to the finished product.
