%$#@ You, Mattel! Ever After High Movie!?

Yup, you heard or in this case read correctly. Mattel is going to make an Ever After High... which is basically the Fairy Tale version of Monster High...

So, we know that Max Steel IS Happening. I already mentioned that Monster High is being developed. Not to mention the whole bit about Barbie getting a movie.

What in the name of all that is holy is going on here!? Everything EXCEPT He-Man seems to be moving along swimmingly!! Why is that? The simple answer is obvious. All of these are easier to make than He-Man. Max Steel happens in Modern day Earth. EAH is a stylized Fairy Tale High School. MH is a "Universal Monsters" Styled High School. All of these are easier to film than a Star Wars-esque world combined with a Conan-Like world. I will give them that, but still a shame that He-Man seems to be permanently stuck in Limbo while Mattel is pushing out EVERYTHING ELSE!

While Monster High and Ever After High seem easy to make, This was easy to make as well...

Just because it's easy to make doesn't mean it'll be good. (This applies to the He-Man movie as well, but with easy swapped for complicated) There is a positive to He-Man being delayed and all of these going before him. Mattel can LEARN from their mistakes before Getting He-Man out... Assuming they learned from their errors in 1987. (which to be fair, makes Mattel being ahead of the game since they had a live action He-Man movie long before a Transformers movie was made...)

Problem with Mattel is that they are often behind the times. Sure, once in a blue moon they innovate, but as they say: Even a broken clock is correct twice a day. Hopefully these projects will help Mattel wake up and make sure we get a He-Man movie BEFORE Georgie "Master Procrastinator" R.R. Martin finishes A Song of Ice and Fire.
