A short while back, news broke that Netflix had commissioned a new He-Man animated show, called Masters of the Universe: Revelation. The show is a continuation of the original series, and will explore the further adventures of He-Man, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms and many other classic Eternians.
The anime series is being developed by Kevin Smith for Mattel Television and Netflix. It is expected to arrive on the streaming service in 2021.
But that’s old news, so what’s the new news?
Well, today Smith took to social media to reveal the cast list for the forthcoming show, and boy, does it sound good!
Speaking in a post, Smith said: “We have cast some true masters of their craft for our @masters cartoon that’s coming to @netflix, including 2 Batmans, a Buffy, and a Joker!”
Sounds awesome, right? Yep – and here’s the cast list in full (via News-a-rama):
- Mark Hamill (Star Wars, Batman: The Animated Series) as Skeletor
- Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, 300) as Evil-Lyn
- Chris Wood (Supergirl, The Vampire Diaries) as Prince Adam / He-Man
- Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cruel Intentions) as Teela
- Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones, Clash of the Titans) as Man-At-Arms
- Stephen Root (Office Space, Barry) as Cringer
- Diedrich Bader (Office Space, Napoleon Dynamite) as King Randor / Trap Jaw
- Griffin Newman (The Tick, Vinyl) as Orko
- Tiffany Smith (Behind Enemy Lines, Supernatural) as Andra
- Henry Rollins (Johnny Mnemonic, Lost Highway) as Tri-Klops
- Alan Oppenheimer (original Skeletor) (Westworld, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) as Moss Man
- Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman, Justice League) as Sorceress
- Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, Batman & Robin) as Queen Marlena
- Justin Long (Galaxy Quest, Live Free or Die Hard) as Roboto
- Jason Mewes (Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) as Stinkor
- Phil LaMarr (Mad TV, Justice League) as He-Ro
- Tony Todd (Candyman, Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Scare Glow
- Cree Summer (DC Super Hero Girls, Vampirina) as Priestess
- Kevin Michael Richardson (The Batman, ThunderCats) as Beast Man
- Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Crisis on Infinite Earths) as Mer-Man
- Harley Quinn Smith (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot) as Ileena
I was sold on Mark Hamill playing Skeletor, but Tony Todd as Scare Glow and Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn? Heck, yeah!
And with Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, and Phil LaMarr joining Hamill, this show seems to be building its own Justice League/Justice League Unlimited reunion. 2021 can’t come soon enough!
