Masters of the Universe: Revelation Cast Revealed

Netflix's Masters of the Universe: Revelation animated series has revealed its powerful voice cast!

Kevin Smith’s animated He-Man reboot for Netflix, Masters of the Universe: Revelation is coming closer to reality. The series, which was announced back in August, will pick up the story from the original Filmation He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series years later, basically taking the Creed/The Force Awakens/Jurassic World approach with its “belated sequel” look at the world of Eternia. Smith, of course, has a distinct comedic sensibility as well as a deep knowledge and love of genre and superhero properties, and he serves as executive producer on the series.

Netflix has now revealed the Masters of the Universe: Revelation voice cast, and it’s…um…powerful. You might even say it’s the most powerful voice cast in the universe! Check it out…

Harley Quinn Smith as Illeena

Mark Hamill as Skeletor alone would be enough, but Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn and Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela are particularly brilliant choices. The assemblage of talent here rivals that of the star-studded group that makes up the cast of the hilarious Harley Quinn animated series on DC Universe. In fact, the way Harley Quinn looks and feels very much like it could fit in a “serious” version of an animated DC Universe, while peppering in all manner of filthy jokes and graphic violence, might work pretty well for He-Man and friends, too.

“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe,” Smith said in August when the show was first announced. “In Revelation, we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”

It seems unlikely that Masters of the Universe: Revelation will have anything to do with Netflix’s brilliant She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, which might just be the best MoTU-related piece of media ever, but maybe we’ll get lucky. Multiverses are all the rage right now anyway, right? It’s possible that Netflix will also become the home to Sony’s long in development Masters of the Universe live action reboot, as well, which would put all your He-Man streaming needs in one place.

There’s no release date set for Masters of the Universe: Revelation, but hopefully it will arrive this year.
