“It’s a really big responsibility. This is like first one in, last one out every single day, which I’ve done before, but I’ve never done it on a studio level. Which, studio level is the same as indie, but like, they got playback… It’s a big opportunity and I feel more than ready to tackle it.”
Centineo then revealed that he has indeed been practicing He-Man’s classic line “I have the power!”:
“I’ve been screaming it until my voice is vocally fried, man.”
He went on to expand on the tone of the film:
“It’s a new universe and it’s a new studio and their take on a universe. The Nee brothers, Adam and Aaron Nee, they’re directing it, and they’re the filmmakers in charge of the story, and they are doing one hell of a job developing the world and all these things, so. I can’t tell you what tone they’re going for, but they’re genius, so.”
Masters of the Universe will hit theaters on March 5, 2021. Are you excited to see Centineo in the role of He-Man?
