While there’s already a lot of kerfuffle over Kevin Smith’s He-Man sequel series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, it seems that the showrunner has just dropped a bit of news that might put a few noses belonging to fans of the classic series out of joint.

In a recent interview with Nerdist (below), Smith revealed that a fairly big character in the He-Man mythology will be killed off in the series.

But who, I hear you ask! Well, it’s going to see the end of Orko.

Who is Orko, I hear you young ‘uns ask, well: Orko was the greatest wizard back on his world of Trolla, where he was known as “Orko the Great” amongst his fellow Trollans. After accidentally arriving on Eternia during the season of storms, Orko was adopted by the Royal family. Orko has constantly proved his worth, while his amusing tricks and quick wit entertain the Royal court.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the fandom reacts to this series in general but this bit of news might just make the show an even more bitter pill to swollow.

Check out Smith’s revelation *ahem* below:

Masters of the Universe: Revelation will star Supergirl’s Chris Wood plays He-Man/Prince Adam, Star Wars veteran Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Buffy herself Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Clueless star Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man and the original voice of Skeletor, Alan Oppenheimer, as Moss Man, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Griffin Newman as Orco, Stephen Root as Cringer, Diedrich Bader as King Randor and Trap Jaw, Tiffany Smith as Andra, Henry Rollins as Tri-Klops, Susan Eisenberg as Sorceress, Jason Mewes as Stinkor, Phil LaMarr as He-Ro, Tony Todd as Scare Glow, Cree Summer as Priestess, and Kevin Michael Richardson as Beast Man.

The series hits Netflix on July 23rd.

From Executive Producer Kevin Smith, comes an epic story that picks up where the 80’s series left off and brings the power of Grayskull back to the world. Part 1 of Masters of the Universe: Revelation premieres July 23, only on Netflix.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
