He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is one of the most fondly remembered animated shows of the 1980s. It was originally launched to promote a line of toys, but ended up being a huge hit in its own right. The animated reboot Masters of the Universe: Revelations is on the way from Netflix, and now the cast has been announced.
Clerks director and pop culture personality Kevin Smith is the showrunner, and the series will continue the adventures of He-Man and his friends on the planet of Eternia, decades after we last saw them. In terms of the cast, there are some seriously impressive names involved. The highest profile actor is Star Wars icon Mark Hamill, who will voice the villainous Skeletor. Hamill previously voiced Joker in the classic ’90s Batman animated series and Chucky in last year’s Child’s Play reboot, so this is another classic villain to add to his resumé.
The cast also includes Chris Wood (Supergirl) as He-Man, Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) as Evil-Lyn, Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) as Tee-La, Stephen Root (Barry) as Cringer, and Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) as Man-At-Arms. Other intriguing cast members include punk icon Henry Rollins as Tri-Klops and Candyman star Tony Todd as Scare Glow. Check out the full cast below:
