Kevin Smith’s animated Masters of the Universe series at Netflix has lined up a powerhouse voice cast.
Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Chris Wood and Sarah Michelle Gellar headline the ensemble for Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an anime-style series on which Smith serves as showrunner. 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.
Hamill will play the villainous Skeletor in the series. Game of Thrones star Headey plays Skeletor’s right-hand woman, Evil-Lyn. Wood (Supergirl, ABC’s Thirtysomething sequel) is Prince Adam/He-Man, and Gellar and Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) play He-Man’s cohorts Teela and Man-at-Arms, respectively.
The cast also includes Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Griffin Newman, Tiffany Smith, Henry Rollins, Alan Oppenheimer, Susan Eisenberg, Alicia Silverstone, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Phil LaMarr, Tony Todd, Cree Summer, Kevin Michael Richardson, Kevin Conroy and Harley Quinn Smith. Oppenheimer, who plays Moss Man in the new show, was the voice of Skeletor in the 1983 He-Man series.
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.
