Netflix has just announced that they’re adding another He-Man show to their roster and yes, this is a DIFFERENT He-Man show than the one they already announced earlier this year.

Back in August, Netflix announced Masters of the Universe: Revelation, helmed by Kevin Smith. Smith described the show as an “anime series” and also “the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”–wildly different and far removed, then, from Noelle Stevenson’s extremely updated She-Ra: Princesses of Power.

This new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which will be CG-animated and made by House of Cool and CGCG (the companies behind Trollhunters and other 3-D CG animations), also seems totally removed from both Princesses of Power AND Smith’s Revelation.

Which means Netflix has three completely separate He-Man universes existing simultaneously–not to mention Sony’s Masters of the Universe feature film, which, last we heard, is supposed to star Netflix fave Noah Centino in the title role.

That is … a lot of Eternia content. Meanwhile, She-Ra: Princesses of Power is over here gearing up for season 5 like:
