Masters of the Universe

Revealing mistake: The Eternia out-door scenes depicting the conquest of the Castle Grayskull area are actually one long shot subdivided into smaller parts. Look at the captured Eternian soldiers marched to the castle; they cover very little distance between the shots.

Continuity mistake: When Julie moves through the alley towards whom she thinks is her mother, in the first shot from her she is seen from behind as she walks to the wall on her left, and puts her hand out to it, almost as if to steady herself. The angle changes to a front view, and she is now standing next to a stack of crates, with her hand down by her side. The next time she is shown from behind, she is once again standing by a blank wall, with her hand outstretched to it, before she runs to her "mother".

Question: Were there ever plans for a sequel, if so why was it never made?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: A sequel was not only planned, but money was spent developing sets and costumes. However, Dolph Lundgren did not want to reprise the role, so Laird Hamilton was picked to play He-Man with Albert Pyu set to direct. Canon Films, who produced the first movie, was also planning on producing a Spider-Man movie. However, Canon Films still owed money to Mattel and Marvel for the character rights that they couldn't feasibly pay, so both projects had to be scrapped. Incidentally, not wanting to let money go to waste on sets and costumes, they had Pyu come up with a movie to utilize them, which resulted in Cyborg starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
