- Much of the movie, including the music store battle and the scenes with the villains marching triumphantly down a street, was filmed in Whittier, California.
After the credits, Skeletor's head pops up from the lake and says, "I'll be back!" which sets the stage for a sequel that was never made. However, a script for a "Masters of the Universe" sequel was written, only to be re-written and become the script for the Jean-Claude Van Damme movie Cyborg (1989).
Actress Christina Pickles (the Sorceress) plays the mother of Courteney Cox (Julie) on the TV show "Friends" (1994).
The character of Gwildor was created to replace Orko from "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" (1983).
Many of the buildings in the downtown areas shown in the film are no longer standing, having been destroyed during major earthquakes in the 1990s.
