He-Man and She-Ra had been out of the public eye for a time, but Mattel wanted to capitalize on their previous success. Filmation had closed, so the new series was created by Jetlag Productions.
This series sends He-Man into space - and the future! Skeletor ends up tagging along and causing havoc as usual, but for a new planet called Primus. Both He-Man and Skeletor meet new friends, enemies and possible love interests - as one old friend from the past makes a reappearance.
