Netflix Geeked Week: Masters Of The Universe, Cowboy Bebop, Eden Zero and More


Netflix's Geeked Week has been taking place this week, offering viewers previews of the streamer's upcoming genre films and series. And with animation an area that Netflix has really been stepping up their game, there's been a lot of animated content to get a sneaky peek at. The event ran across social media and streamed on YouTube, Twitch, Tiktok and Facebook. Thursday's program was dedicated to animated content, although some animated content was also revealed on other days.

Masters Of The Universe: Revelation is a sequel to the original 1980s He-Man cartoon from showrunner Kevin Smith. It doesn't get much more 80s than He-Man, so it's only appropriate that this teaser has a brilliant retro feel and a perfect music choice. The animation from the gang at Texas-based Powerhouse Animation (Castlevania, Seis Manos) have done a grand job on producing slick 2D animation that remains faithful to the original series. Part one arrives on Netflix this July

Netflix's live-action series adaptation of classic anime Cowboy Bebop is being approached with caution by many fans. However, it has just revealed a rather big point in its favour.

Even if the series turns out to be a turkey, we should get some awesome new music out of it. The first season drops this Autumn,
