For the reboot of an 80’s cartoon based off of a child’s toy, Netflix’s “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” has lined up one of the most powerful all-star voice casts of all time.
Kevin Smith said, “I cannot believe the lineup of talent I get to play with. The incredible, star-studded cast that Mattel’s Rob David and Netflix’s Ted Biaselli assembled for our Masters of the Universe series will let any lifelong He-Man fan know we’re treating this cartoon seriously and honoring the legendary world of Eternia with A-list talent. Chris, Sarah, Mark, Lena and the other amazing actors and actresses have given performances so powerful and real in a show that features a talking giant green tiger. With these fantastic performers behind our characters, it’ll be crazy easy to immerse yourself in the swords and sorcery of our epic sci-fi soap opera.”
The show has Smith executive producing with Adam Bonnett (Descendants), Christopher Keenan (Batman Beyond) and Rob David (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe). Powerhouse Animation, the animation company behind Netflix’s “Castlevania“, will be producing the animation.
Being the show it is, it managed to grab the likes of Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Sarah Michelle-Gellar, and Chris Wood.
Of course, Mark Hamill, known for his voice acting prowess will be taking on the responsibility of the bane of Eternia… Skeletor. This is perfect casting, as if anyone else would’ve been a good choice. Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) will be voicing the evil right hand of Skeletor, Evil-Lyn. Where as Wood (Supergirl) and Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will be taking on the roles of two of the main heroes, He-Man/Prince Adam and Teela, daughter of Man-at-Arms.
The cast also includes the likes of voice-acting and acting legends
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.
