Director Kevin Smith has been mum about the upcoming He-Man animated reboot at Netflix. But today he revealed probably one of the greatest voice casts to assemble for a television project. Check out the cast list below:
Mark Hamill (the Star Wars legend that helped define the voice of the Joker) is going to once again take on an iconic villain as Skeletor, while Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey will support the baddies as Evil-Lyn. On the side of the heroes is Prince Adam/He-Man (Chris Wood, Supergirl), Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and Man-At-Arms (Liam Cunningham, Game of Thrones). Even Smith favorites like Jason Mewes and his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, make appearances.
Sure, there are a ton more awesome guests — Henry Rollins?? Original Skeletor Alan Oppenheimer?? — but picking out just one or two names among this extensive cast wouldn’t do it justice. So yes, fans can prepare for Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Griffin Newman, Tiffany Smith, Susan Eisenberg, Alicia Silverstone, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Tony Todd, Cree Summer, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Kevin Conroy…but it’s the combination of them all that will make this story truly epic.
The story of Teela’s quest to find the Sword of Power (and He-Man and Skeletor’s final battle) is coming to Netflix sometime in the future.
The series will focus on the unresolved storylines of the iconic characters in the He-Man universe, picking up where they left off decades ago.
Mattel Television is producing the series. Smith executive produces with Adam Bonnett (Descendants), Christopher Keenan (Batman Beyond) and Rob David (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe). Susan Corbin produces. Powerhouse Animation (Castlevania) is the animation studio.
Netflix hasn’t set a premiere date for Masters of the Universe: Revelation. The streamer is also planning a CG-animated He-Man series and has aired She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, based on the 1985 He-Man spinoff, since 2018.
