The Masters of the Universe movie has found its new He-Man, West Side Story's Kyle Allen

The young actor is the replacement for Noah Centineo, the first choice to play He-Man who left the project.

It has been announced for several years but it seems that the film that is going to bring He-Man and the Masters of the Universe back to the big screen cannot raise its head. After being delayed until 2021 due to some difficulties in pre-production, It was in that same year when he lost his protagonist: Noah Centineo, the star of Netflix’s teen movies.

But this is a problem that seems to have been solved because, as the streaming platform has announced, They already have the actor who will play the prince of Eternia, Kyle Allen, whom we have recently seen in the new version of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg, as well as in American Horror Story Double Feature.

Following the line marked by Centineo, of whom it was never known why he decided to abandon the project, Allen also does not exceed the barrier of 26 years, although we will have to wait to see how old they are at the time the film about the Masters of the Universe is released, which still does not have an arrival date on Netflix, despite the fact that it has been in development for more than 10 years.

“We have always been inspired by the magical world of Eternia. This film has been in the making for 14 years and for us and our colleagues it is very exciting to tell a completely new story of the Masters of the Universe”, explained one of the producers of the tape, Todd Black, while Robbie Brener, producer of Mattel added the following:

Masters of the Universe is an iconic property that has been part of the imagination of an entire generation of children. with the message “be the best version of yourself”. With Netflix, we want to show what happens in Eternia to continue breaking new ground in this global franchise. We can’t wait to see Kyle fighting Skeletor in this live action version.”

This movie about He-Man is just one more project of the many that Netflix currently has active with this franchise and of which we have already been able to see the animated series by Kevin Smith, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and the other CGI series for a more children’s audience, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
