Mark Hamill as Skeletor leads the He-Man animated series’ cast

February 19th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ah, but I do love to be the bringer of good news and tonight I have just that…

Kevin smith has released the full cast list for his animated He-Man series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and, in all honesty, they had us at Mark Hamill as Skeletor!

Yes, the Star Wars actor and Joker legend will play the villainous mastermind in the series and he will have some pretty good company.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, will voice Teela while Supergirl’s Chris Wood will play He-Man/Prince Adam.

But it doesn’t stop there as – and these are inspired too – Game of Thrones stars Lena Headey and Liam Cunningham will play as Evil-Lyn and Man-At-Arms respectively.

Rounding out the cast is Griffin Newman as Orko, Stephen Root as Cringer, Diedrich Bader as King Randor and Trap-Jaw, Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, and Susan Eisenberg as Sorceress.

Henry Rollins is Tri-Klops, Kevin Michael Richardson is Beast Man and Tony Todd will play Scare Glow.

Smith’s hertero lifemate Jason Mewes will voice Stinkor; while Smith’s daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, plays Ileena. Original Skeletor, Alan Oppenheimer, will play Moss Man, Tiffany Smith will voice Andra, while Cree Summer portrays Priestess, Justin Long plays Roboto and Furturama and Clone Wars star Phil LaMarr has been cast as He-Ro.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation is currently in production and is set to pick up where the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series ended in the 1980s and I cannot wait to see it.

But the Netflix He-Man goodness doesn’t end there, with the streamer also producing a CGI He-Man series – nothing to do with this one – and it looks like they will pick up the rights to Sony’s cancelled live-action movie too.

Seems Netflix do indeed have the power.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
