The documentary will cover the cartoons, toys, comics, and movies. Already on board are Mark Taylor, toy desiger, Tom Kalinske, former President of Mattell, Derek Gable, Former Director in Preliminary Design Male Action Figures, Janice Varney-Hamlin, Former Senior VP for Girls’ Products, Charles Zembillas, Character Designer He-Man and She-Ra Cartoons, numerous writers for various incarnations of the Graskull saga, and more (see more on the Kickstarter page)
Randall Lobb says
Our passion is to immerse ourselves in the pop culture we love and follow the stories we find right down to the roots. As always, with He-Man, we’re going to make a Definitive documentary: which means one that digs deep, looks incredible and tells the human stories that make this franchise so powerful for so many. We’ll discover stories we can’t yet imagine, interesting and creative people we don’t yet know and make a bunch of new friends, when it’s all said and done. Fans should know that we’re going to give them as much of what they want as we can – especially if they’re willing to share with us what they want!
