It’s only been a month since the Kickstarter Campaign for Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe debuted but the fans have spoken. Having raised more than 200% of their campaign goal and due to overwhelming response, there will be a Special Edition Cut of the documentary, only available to fans who pledge before the 26th February deadline.

The film, from the teams who brought you Turtle Power and Nintendo Quest, will delve into the heart of 80’s nostalgia to find out once and for all #WhoHasThePower.

Power of Grayskull claims it will be the greatest, most definitive documentary on everything He-Man, Masters of the Universe and She-Ra, with everyone from writers, designers, artists, sculptors, show-runners, decision-makers and more on board. It will delve into the toys, comics, cartoons, and movies from all eras by talking to the people who helped make it a reality, co-directed by lifelong Masters of the Universe fan Rob McCallum and Randall Lobb.

Due to the remarkable response to the film’s Kickstarter, fans not only can pre-order the film but also have an option to receive Nintendo Quest and Turtle Power too, in addition to securing exclusive Power of Grayskull rewards. Rewards include animation cels from the filmation cartoon and custom-made Masters of the Universe figures in the backers likeness, based on any era of toyline including She-Ra, and of course the significantly longer Special Edition Cut, which includes exclusive content that will never be offered again.

Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will be directed by Randall Lobb and Rob McCallum, and produced by Randall Lobb, Rob McCallum, Isaac Elliott-Fisher, and Mark Hussey, under Definitive Films.

Definitive Films is built from the ground up for fans, by fans, to honor the best of pop culture and bring fans a deeper, more substantive look at the history and context of the pop culture properties they already love.

Rob McCallum Says: “We’re thrilled that all the Masters of the Universe fans have responded to our vision and plans for the documentary and look forward to delivering the most definitive documentary possible. We didn’t just eke our way across the finish line for this Kickstarter campaign; we crushed our goal, which is a testament to the fanbase’s appetite.”

Randall Lobb says: “Making a Definitive History Of is a huge undertaking, and it’s one that I am unable to begin without fear, uncertainty and trepidation. In such an enormous, long-term creative project like this, there always seem to be more reasons to quit than there are to keep going. However, the incredible outpouring of support and interest He-Man fans have given us through this Kickstarter campaign has shown Mark, Isaac, Rob and I that it doesn’t always have to be that way, and we are grateful. Now, we get to go out there and show our gratitude by making an awesome documentary.”

Thanks to the Kickstarter campaign, Power of Grayskull will debut in 2017.
