        The previous attempt (with Dolph Lundgren) was great! It was your typical 80's sci-fi film. I really loved it!

        I'll go see the new one when it comes out.

          I'm wondering who is going to play Skeletor, and what the premise of the movie will be.

            Yeah, the 1987 He-Man was alright relatively speaking (I think the worst movie that came out that year was Superman IV).

            I remember watching it when I was like 10, and my stepdad spoofed the movie the whole time. Made it kind of funny, actually.

              I hears Nicholas Cage was going to be Skeletor but he wants to do "Ghost rider" it should be better than the original one.

              Here's my cast for a He-Man film.

              Teela = Talisa Soto
              Orko = Rip Taylor
              Man-at-arms = Tom Selleck
              Battlecat = Frank Welker
              Evil Lyn = Grace Jones
              Triclops = James Marsden

                I do have to say one thing for the first He-man movie.And that is the special effects they used to make Skeletor was not half bad considering the time.When I heard about the movie I just knew Skeletor would look chessy but I was very happy with what I saw.

                  He-Man may have been my favorite cartoon ever as a kid. However I am nervous about this movie.

                    Some time ago at a friend's house I saw the opening clip to a newer He-Man cartoon. The animation and voice actors were different, but the opening was the same right up until the middle of Prince Adam's speech (somewhere around, "And this is Cringer, my fearless friend.";). Then Skeletor attacks, rudely interupting the speech. I couldn't stay to see what the cartoon was because we were leaving. Was this the opening to "The New Adventures of He-Man" cartoon from the 80's, when he got sent to the future to fight Flogg? Or is there a NEW New Adventures of He-Man?

                    I would like to see a He-Man movie, as long as it's better than the old one. I didn't feel that movie had much to do with the series -- it happens on Earth instead of Eternia, few of the main characters were present (where was Orko?), and none of the cool side-characters even made an appearance. I guess the lack of characters makes sense if the story happens on Earth, but I always thought the He-Man cartoon took place in the future. His mother was an Earth astronaut, right? But at the time of the movie we weren't anywhere close to having the technology for one of our astronauts to make a long space trip, even accidentally.

                        In regards to Orko he wasn't in the 80's movie. There was a new character in his place who didn't go down well with the fans.

                          That was the 2002 He-Man series.

                              There was a 2002 series? So, a third series? I didn't know that. Was it any good?

                                Yep. It was a remake of the original series and probably the best of the 3 shows.

                                  Yeah, there was the original He-Man, then another series where both He-Man and Skeletor get pulled into the future (which regularly featured He-Man jumping around outside of space ships without any form of breathing aparatus), and then a new series a few years ago from Cartoon Network.

                                  The CN version was actually surprisingly good. It kept almost all of the original characters (although it portioned them out over the episodes instead of everybody being there at the start), and even kept pretty darn true to their original character designs.

                                  But dammit, I want a new Thundercats series! :P

                                    The 80’s He-Man film is classic. Not only was Dolph in it, but we get to see a young Courtney Cox, before she was defiled by the Eight Legged Freak.

                                      I liked the 80s movie at the time too, but I remember hating that they came to Earth instead of it all taking place on Eternia. I wanted to see Battlecat, and all the rest of the characters.

                                      I LOVED Meg Foster as Evil-Lyn. She was perfect for the role.

                                        The 8o’s movie was classic. I think if they had stayed more true to the cartoon the move would have been a crappy as the cartoon. Cause I Hate to say it but the show was a cheesy 30 advertisement for the toys.
                                        The movie tried to bring He-Man closer to earth (literally and figural). Who didn’t think it would have cool to kick it with He-Man and protect the earth.

                                          I look forward to see this new He-Man movie. I liked the old He-Man movie Masters of the Universe that came to theaters back in 1987. I remember on the old video cover of Masters of the Universe there was a quote that some critic wrote for a news headline saying "Star Wars of the 80s." Since I like the old He-Man movie, I look forward to the new one that comes out in 2006. I know John Woo as the director of Broken Arrow (1996), Face/Off (1997), and Mission Impossible II (2000). So yeah, it will be a good He-Man movie.
