He-Man and the Masters of the Universe hits DVD this fall

Dolph Lungren took on the role of the Most Powerful Man in the Universe, when he took the role of He-Man in the live-action adaptation of the then popular cartoon series and children’s toy line. Panned by critics and audiences, the film eventually picked up a cult following and now comes to DVD for the first time from Warner Home Video.

Only loosely based on the original characters of “Masters of the Universe” the live-action film takes place on a war-torn Eternia, where the Heroic He-Man must defend the secrets of Castle Greyskull from the evil Skeletor. When a bumbling sorcerer accidentally transports He-Man and his allies to Earth, they must team up with two teenagers (played by Courteney Cox and “Star Trek: Voyagers Robert Duncan MnNeil”) who must help He-Man return to his home planet.

The new DVD will be rather featureless, but will be presented in its original widescreen transfer – 16×9 enhanced of course – and Dolby Stereo. Nonetheless, the disc will be a treat for He-Man fans, even if the films animated counterpart “The Secret of the Sword” still remains MIA.

The DVD will hit shelves on October 2nd with a suggested retail price of $19.98.
