He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will make its Cartoon Network debut at 4 PM Eastern on Friday August 16th with a 90-minute special featuring the never-before-told story of the origin of He-Man.

Eternia is a land of myth, sorcery and advanced technology where epic heroes accomplish remarkable deeds, strange creatures roam the land, and malevolent enemies wreak havoc. Deep within Castle Grayskull lies the repository of universal knowledge hidden long ago by the Elders of Eternia. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defend Castle Grayskull and all of Eternia from the tyrannical Skeletor and his Evil Warriors.

On Friday August 16th, the 90-minute movie premiere will tell the story of how Prince Adam became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, for the very first time. The original He-Man series was introduced to television audiences in 1983 and became one of the most successful kids entertainment properties in history.
